bollocks. You put the brush through it and then went to the pub thinking you'd sand it tomorrow.

Then horror of horrors, he'd painted it when you got back.

Feel for you mate. Hate it when the customer wants to paint and you know they're gonna do a s**t job.

Had it many times where customer had a go at painting and f**k*d it up.

Did one ceiling that needed substantial repairs lathe load of work got it absolutely perfect. Came back weeks later to do next room and they’d painted the ceiling with a fence brush i was disgusted

She seen me heaving and asked why and I explained. She felt a right twat and asked my advice . I said you got to sand it all down now and roller it.

All new builds are sprayed mate.
It shows up any tiny imperfections.
Fuucking nightmare skimming behind bad joiners.
Good dabbers are worth their weight in gold.
As for painters they can all f**k off....they have picked a pathetic life.

I explain it when I can be arsed

Water down emulsion or save headache and get no nonesne bare plaster

First coat extremely important as it seals it but also plaster so thirsty you have to be fast to take lines out on mist coat

Then paint as normal

Sorry to disappoint you mate but I feel for @Vincey on this one.
I had a whole load of my work wreaked by a bunch of Latvian Muppets a few years ago. The project manager (who is a tit) even put the pictures up on here trying (and succeeding) to get people to slag my work of. The next day when I asked him to explain how all the painted walls and ceilings looked utter shite, but all the bare plastered ones looked spot on he was a bit lost for words.

Absolutely. I enjoy painting my work occasionally. Painting is a funny trade there isn’t much to it but is a bit. Cutting in by hand etc. It can be f**k*d up quite easily

Most customers do their own which is a shame as most of them f**k up perfect plastered walls

Fair doos! I hate painting, talk about sticking pins in your eyes!
I don't mind so much if its an empty room or house you're refurbing.

Had a little painting job couple of weeks back. Didn't really want to do it, but a was a regular client, so keep them sweet. Just a really fiddly job...was glad to finish!

I may be wrong here but I don’t give a toss who paints my work or how they leave it, as long as I did my bit right and got paid for it the rest is up to them
