Want to learn how to paint? I will Teach you.

I created The Idaho Painter an alternative to to big box DIY video shows that have actors who only act like they can paint but really can barely act. My mission is to shatter the barriers of entry into painting and convince people that it can be a lot of fun painting and painting fun little projects on your own without an expensive professional painter. No experience is necessary.

Never understood either way someone would want to wet the nap. Makes no sense. Thanks for the video!

Great video and thanks for the tips. I go Purdy all the way. For those who go the cheap route that's just a shame- you get what you pay for. Anyone who thinks using tape to remove lint on a cheapy roller is wasting time, money, and quality. Purdy rocks all the way. Rock on Chris!

do u recycle napps or throw away after every job

The sound is not high enough - cant hear you even with my laptop volume on high

You mentioned keep the roller pointed in the same direction to avoid "stippling".  Guess my question is this... when you roll up the wall then down the wall don't you in effect "reverse" the direction of the nap anyway or am I missing something? Thank you?

+The Idaho Painter y would u not use an 18" roller? Small jobs like bathrooms I understand. But for big ceilings and lots of walls to do 18" roller is the only way to go

Hey Chris.... what type extension roller handle are you using there... i think i'm in the market for one.  since i'm just a 'single-operator, and don't work with a 'crew' or 'company yet'...i've just been getting by with a 'fixed-length' wood pole type, for any estimable heights...maybe 6' long.... just finishing however,  a job i accepted with some 18" foot ceilings ( didn't do ceilings thankfully...but had to roll up to, and cut-in, at that height... fairly terrifying as i used a 14" Warner A-Frame... but,  man...reaching up to the 18ft mark.... anyway...what is your recommendation for the "Best" slide-extension?...i think i need a really sturdy, good one.... thx pal!

+drummerfella 55 he explained it in detail.... anyhow, my favorite is the Purdy with the metal button like he uses here, rather than the black full size release button that they make now. My little thumbs can get tired from how hard they release. And I actually returned my Purdy quick release (Sherwin Williams can explain those) since it stuck too much and wasn't quick at all. Again, probably because they changed and started making the big black button type. oh, by quick release, I'm not referring to the extension pole going in and out. I'm referring too the actual quick release of the roller handle FROM the extension pole (rather then untwisting it). Great idea, just needs tweeking because they dont release so well.

Hi Chris...what are your thoughts about rolling 'direct' from our 5 gal. buckets... another fella on here,  simply saying the 'pans are a hassle'.  i've come across that at times too....can even be 'stepped on',  if they end up under your feet, as your staring up doing a ceiling or whatever.... only thing that has me 'casting' doubt with that now,  is your recommendation in this vid to..."not" fully dip the cover and cage, beyond the half-way point or so, of the circumfrence of the roller.  your saying by 'soaking the entire unit, and getting paint on the ends... drip issues happen.   sort of torn then..because short of that...i really 'saw' a benefit to saying 'goodbye to pans, and their disposable plastics,  and just.... dipping right into a 5 gal, with a screen, doing my work from there?  any thoughts?   appreciate it!  :)

+drummerfella 55 I wont even use a pan. As a matter of fact, I don't even own one. I usually roll my eyes and skip the video/commercial that shows someone using a pan as I feel by now an experienced painter would know what a pain they are. But I guess I can't be too quick to judge since this guy seems to be experienced. I just cannot imagine why anyone would use an awkward pan.

If using a 9" nap always use a 5gal bucket easier and cleaner. I hate 9" rollers I use 18" majority of time.
