Step-by-step

STEP 1: Preparing your brushes

If you’re using water-based paint soak your brush in an inch of water for 10-15min, then remove and spin in between your hands to remove excess water. If you’re using oil-based paint, follow the same steps using turps instead of water.

STEP 2: Prepare your crates

Prepare your crate by sanding it down with a quality sanding block. Wipe off the excess dust so that the paint will adhere to the surface, giving it a smooth finish.

STEP 3: Paint your crate – Style 1

Use a Monarch 50mm Walls, Doors & Trims brush from the Monarch Detail & Finishing brush range for a quality finish. Use different bright colours on each panel of the crate to make it stand out. Make sure you get into all the tight corners.

STEP 4: Paint your crate – Style 2

For your 2nd style, paint the entire crate with a single light colour, using a Monarch 25mm Razorback Nytec Angled Sash Cutter. Use long straight strokes for a smooth finish.

STEP 5: Finishing up

Congratulations, you’re done! Scrape any leftover paint back into the paint jar for re-use. Wash your brushes thoroughly so you can use them for your next project.
