Get asked often why I don’t have brush strokes in my furniture, well the truth is, I spray most of my furniture, but when I can’t spray a piece there are a few tricks I use!
The first most important is make sure you have a good brush. Nicer brushes naturally leave fewer paint lines. I have had really good luck with the brand Purdy, they are sold at Home Depot or Lowes and run $15 to $20 a brush. Next I add Floetrol to my paint at a 3:1 ratio. Floetrol helps eliminate brush strokes it also makes your paint dry slower allowing for more working time, a gallon of Floetrol is about $15 at Lowes. If you don’t want to use Floetrol adding a bit of water to your paint can also help with brush strokes. When painting use nice long straight brush strokes, this will help make your strokes less noticeable! I hope this helps on your next painting adventure!
