How to Use a Paint Brush and/or Roller on Interior Painting Projects

  1. 1
    Buy professional-quality equipment that will last a lifetime.
  2. 2
    Invest in a good roller cover and wood handle or extension pole.
  3. 3
    Wet the roller before dipping it into the paint.
  4. 4
    Since rollers can’t get tight to edges, the first painting step is to brush along the ceiling, inside corners and moldings.
  5. 5
    Reload the roller and repeat the process in the adjacent space, working back toward the painted area.
  6. 6
    Scrape excess paint from the roller before you wash it.
  7. 7
    Wash the roller with warm water and detergent.
  8. 8
    Rinse the roller cover until the water runs clear.

How to Use a Paint Roller on Interior Painting Projects

  1. 1
    Pour a quart of the paint into a pail.
  2. 2
    Prepare the edges; you can lay a line of painter's tape against the edge.
  3. 3
    Dip the brush bristles 1 to 2 in. into the paint to load the brush. For a drier brush, try dragging one side over the edge of the pail.
  4. 4
    Start at the top of the board with the loaded brush and stroke down toward the middle.
  5. 5
    Make long strokes. Avoid dabbing small areas as this leaves marks in the paint.
  6. 6
    Quickly coat an area with several brush loads of paint, and then blend and smooth it out by lightly running the unloaded brush tip over it - called “tipping”.
  7. 7
    Cut in along the edges. This will only apply if you didn't put down painter's tape
  8. 8
    Clean the brush immediately after stopping.
