Pictured on the left are four handy tools that are definite keepers. Of the four my favorite is the Wooster Shortcut paintbrush. With the short flexible handle I can paint accurate, steady lines along windows, doors, and baseboards. I didn’t have to use painters tape to keep the woodwork free of paint.
Scraping not scratching, the plastic razor blade is an indispensable tool for removing unwanted material from easily scratched surfaces such as silicone on an acrylic or fiberglass tub surround.
Two other products that have saved time and frustration when painting a cabinet door or craft project are Painter’s Pyramids and the mini roller. The triangle point has minimal contact with the project so when I painted one side of a door, I could immediately flip the door over to paint the other side. And painting the edges was easy peasy.
