PrepRite ProBlock B51 20 W

March 7, 2008
I’ve been spending more time with some Sherwin Williams product lately. I typically do not use their products but I do like to keep my hands on what they’re up to. I grabbed a gallon of the PrepRite ProBlock Seals & Bonds primer for priming pine Anderson Windows and I was very happy with the results.
My goal here is to apply a tinted primer which was 65% of SW Cloud Nine and top off with two coats of Sherwin Williams Master Hide Semi-Gloss. The working time and coverage is superior for this application.
The photo looks slightly purple because it’s tinted. I like when things go well and this project went without a hitch. The primer is thick enough to bridge with but use caulk instead. Pro’s don’t bridge anything!

I used the new Purdy Clearcut nylon/polyester brush as seen. Click photos to view larger images.


Purdy Clearcut – Clear Winner!

March 7, 2008


The next best thing to Purdy ClearCut is owning a box of them.

While there are hundreds of brushes available for interior painting, there are really only three that stand out and this is one of them. To be more specific, I primarily do interior painting and owning a 3" flat and 2.5" angular brush is all I need to do my job.

IMG_0753e Clearcut is a blend of nylon and polyester and comes in a variety of sizes. I never really thought Purdy ever had a brush in their line up for acrylics worth a damn up until now. This brush proves that Purdy is seriously committed to providing outstanding tools for our trade. I am impressed with this brush and if you know me, I rarely say I’m impressed.
