Rollertricks

Recommended Posts

Been looking around the forum, cant really find anything about this.

 

What are youre favorite ways to make rollerpieces?

 

Long rollersticks, hanging over the edge, brushes/rollers. What do you use for outlines, size, type of emulsion.

Some nice or original use of techniques and maybe examples of your or other peoples work to illustrate??? Funny stories, do and donts? Whats the 101 on rollerpiecing?

 

I myyself prefer to use long extendible rollerstick (up to 10 metres) latex emulsion, furroller for the filling, wait some time and outline with acrylic latex (fastdrying and covers in 1 time) Also this doesnt reliquify the previous paintlayer.

Tryed hanging over a couple of times, just gives me muscle ace for a week. Maybe i need to work on my sixpack...

Agreed, but the guy started it the wrong way.

 

Someone should start a legit roller thread.

do you mix your paint with water for the fillins of LARGE roller pieces to save on paint?

Depends on the paints base, if its water based or latex based and so on. Using bucket paint for fillson throws can be interesting and look fucking cool....

I've yet to experiment with a roller piece but have always envied them...

 

I have questions, no doubt:

1]. Latex paint. does it work for roll-ups?

2]. ....who me?

3]. Is it necessary to lay down a layer, then let it dry, and lay down another one, or can i just chunk up a color on top of a non-dry and go?

latex paint is good cuz it is durable, and it sticks fast, but you need to know what type of wall you are gonna do it on.

 

a wall that has been buffed will be much easier to roll on then a wall that has never been touched.

 

and yea, the latex paint is great if mixed with a little bit of water.
