How to use wall magic paint rollers

6 tips for painting with paint rollers

Reading time: 2 minutes

1. Tip - paint rollers with fur cover for wall paints and emulsion paints

Paint rollers are available in different designs and sizes as well as with different coverings. Rolls with fur cover are excellent helpers for painting wall paints and emulsion paint. The size of the paint rollers used depends on the size of the area to be painted. It is best to use small fur rolls for corners and hard-to-reach places.

2nd tip - the foam roller for paints and stains

Use a foam roller for painting paint on smooth surfaces.

3. Tip - you should pay attention to this when buying a painter's roller

When buying a paint roller, be sure to pay attention to the thickness of the covering (fur or foam). Paint rollers with thin coverings take up very little paint, but the paint can be applied almost completely to the wall. On the other hand, paint rollers with thick coverings take up a lot of paint, but after a while they become quite full. The roll becomes heavy and half of the paint remains on the roll.

4th tip - squeegee and paint tray

If you work with a painter's roller, then a wiping grid and a paint tray should definitely be part of your painter's range as an aid. When buying a paint tray, make sure that it has a wiping surface.

Tip 5 - this is how you work with a squeegee and a paint tray

Dip the paint roller no more than a third into the paint. Distribute the paint evenly on the paint roller by rolling the roller over the squeegee a few times. This will transport the remaining paint back into the paint container. Proceed in a similar way when working with a paint tray. Dip the roller a third in the paint or stain and roll over the stripping surface a few times. The rest of the paint runs back into the tub.

Tip 6 - this is how you clean paint rollers

After finishing the painting work you should immediately clean the paint rollers. You can easily pull the fur or foam roller off the handle and rinse both thoroughly under lukewarm water. However, if the roller was used for paints with solvents (e.g. varnishes), a container must be filled with turpentine or another thinner, depending on the size of the roller.

If you place the roll in this dilution bath, make sure that all the fibers of the roll are covered by the liquid. After a few hours, the paint will come off and you can remove the roll from the liquid to dry it.
