Paint Preparation & Tools - FAQ
Why is preparing for a paint job so important?
Without completing the preparation work correctly, you could jeopardise the end result of your paint project. Common mishaps from not preparing paint surfaces include blistering, peeling or flaking paint. This is because paint cannot adhere properly to surfaces that haven’t been filled, sanded and cleaned.
Preparation will ensure that your paint applies to the surface flawlessly and you are left with a beautiful finish.
Which paint preparation tools are essential for a project?
Monarch has a wide range of paint tools that you may need for your next project. An essential preparation item you need before beginning any paint job is Monarch Sugar Soap. When getting any surface ready for painting, you need to make sure that it has been washed thoroughly. Sugar Soap will eliminate all dirt, grime and mould, priming your surface beautifully.
Paint ingredients will typically separate while in the tin, so you will need to give it a stir before painting to avoid uneven colour and consistency. The reusable Timber Paint Stirrer is ideal for mixing paint and fluids together thoroughly. For a two-in-one solution, our Paint Stirrer with Can Opener will not only stir paint, but open your paint can with ease.
Do you have a tool to help me clean my brushes and rollers?
Absolutely! Cleaning your brushes and rollers properly is extremely important if you want them to last longer. The Monarch Brush Comb will remove any excess paint from your roller or brush. It also can get out any tough paint that may have dried near the ferrule.
