1. Soak the new brush. Before using the new brush, place the brush in clean water and soak it so that the brush’s bristles can fully absorb water. The recommended soaking time is 10-15 minutes. If you want the brush to work better, you can also pour some washing powder in the clean water.
2. The length of dipping paint is 1/3 of the brush. When dipping the brush with paint, pay attention to the length of the brush. Generally, paint can be applied to 1/3 of the brush. After applying the paint, gently brush the wall with the sharp corners of the brush to ensure that the paint does not drip.
3. Keep the brush and the construction object at 45°. If you are painting the wall or furniture, you should form a 45-degree angle between the brush and the construction object; if you are painting the ceiling, the angle between the brush and the ceiling should be 90 °. In addition, if you are brushing wood, you should follow the texture of the wood.
4. Pay attention to brushing back when painting the paint. Generally, the paint should be brushed back during the brushing process to make the paint film look better; if it is semi-gloss or light paint, it is not suitable to brush back.
