We'll show you the tricks and techniques that painting pros use to get a perfectly painted room. All you need are some basic tools to paint fast, get great results and make clean up a breeze. Painting is one of the least expensive ways to make over a room, so grab a roller and let's get to work.

The first part is a pattern roller, which is a 6-inch wide rubber roller having a raised pattern embossed on its surface. The second part is an applicator which consists of a frame, a handle, and a special foam feeder roller.
To use it, you simply roll the feeder roller into some paint (any paint, no special glazes needed), snap on a pattern roller and you're ready to roll!
