EASY PAINTING HACKS

Boost your painting game with these helpful hacks that will help you work efficiently and cleanly! Giving you some handy alternatives to some great painting tools, like the Brush Baggy and Handy Paint pail. Give them a go with your Haydn tools today!

KEEP YOUR PAINT CAN RIMS CLEAN

All this hack requires is some Haydn Sabre Masking Tape!

Simply place the tape in a ‘V’ shape on top of the opened paint can. Make sure the masking tape is stuck somewhat securely, by pushing the tape into the rim, otherwise the tape will just come loose when you pour the paint. We also added an additional piece of tape at the bottom of the ‘V’ just for added strength.

Now pour your paint without having to worry about paint going everywhere, and once the tape is removed your paint can will still look as good as new!

 

 

EASILY REMOVE EXCESS PAINT

With this hack you won’t have to worry about using the side of your paint can to wipe off excess paint and potentially have paint run into the rim.

All you need is a rubber band! Simply place it around the can so that the band is over top of the paint, and then use this to wipe excess paint off your brush. It's as easy as that to quickly remove paint and know that the paint will stay where it’s meant to.

 

 

 

 

DON’T HAVE A BRUSH BAGGY HANDY?

Need to securely store wet paint brushes and you’ve run out of your Brush Baggy’s… this is where the Haydn General Purpose Vinyl Gloves can come into play.

Simply put a glove on and grab the brush bristles with your hand. Take the glove off, turning it inside out around the brush and then secure the open glove end to the brush with some Haydn Sabre Masking Tape. Easy, simple and keeps your wet brushes out of trouble!

 

 

 

DON’T HAVE A HANDY BRUSH HOLDER?

Forgot your HANDy Paint Pail with its convenient magnetic brush holder, but have a Haydn bucket and magnet lying around. Simply BluTac (for a quick, less permanent option) or glue (for a sturdier, more permanent option) the magnet to the bucket and you can paint with ease knowing you’ve got a safe place to put your brush!

 

 

 

 

 

KEEP PAINT TRAYS CLEAN

Want to reduce cleaning time with your paint trays, then this easy hack is for you and it involves two words: Cling Wrap! Simply cover your paint tray in cling wrap, pour your paint and roll away as usual. When you’re finished, all you need to do is remove the cling wrap and throw away - no need to spend ages cleaning the tray out!
