roller and tip

Brilliant article, and the comment on getting everyone involved is more serious than perhaps you meant it to be.

My lovely long suffering wife Christ knows why she is still here will tell you that nothing annoys more than wanting to help and she does and not being able to.

Let them roller it on, keep your mouth shut and work like hell behind to sort it out.

I've been married a long time.

On a more serious note, if you want to use rollers.

Aim for more coats and thin the varnish slightly, probably 20 percent and tell the roller user to go real slow.

With practice they can get zero bubbles.

The bubbles are caused by speed of roller.
