My Favorite Items
When painting, whether it's for yourself or for a business, there are so many options of items to buy. I want to share with you some my favorites.
FOR SPRAYING PAINT
Fuji Semi-Pro 2 Sprayer System
Fuji sprayers are excellent sprayers! The Semi-Pro 2 HVLP sprayer is a great balance between cost and strength. The 2 stage motor can handle any type of coating.
Additionally, they have amazing customer support, which I think is very important
Fuji Spray Gravity Cup
I often switch between the standard HVLP gun and the gravity fed. This mounts to the M-Model spray gun which comes with the Semi-Pro 2.
Fuji Spray 2049F 6-Foot Flexible Whip Hose
This flexible hose is a life saver! It is light and easily bends making movement with the sprayer much easier. By adding it on to the end of your existing hose, the weight of the heavy existing hose is on the ground and all you are holding is the weight of this flexible hose.
Fuji Spray M Aircap
I have found that I get better results with a larger needle. This 1.8mm needle size works perfect with Fusion Mineral Paint.
TO REMOVE ODORS
Bamboo Charcoal Air Purifying Bags
Do you have musty drawers? Suitcases that have a strange odor? These charcoal bags are the perfect solution!
These charcoal bags come in a pack of 10 and can be drop in a drawer or hung, with the included hooks, in a closet or room.
The best part... These bags are rechargeable and can be used for up to 2 years. Simply place them out in direct sunlight for 2 hour once a month to release trapped moisture and foul odors from their pours. Once they are recharged they will be like new.
Whenever I have minor scratches or area I need to spot prime this is my go-to primer.
This filler and sandable spray paint fills minor surface imperfections and sands smooth. It can be uses on wood, metal and fiberglass surfaces.
I use my mister all the time! I spray my brush before painting. I spray directly on my furniture when doing a wash. I use it to blend paint colors. I also use it for non paint related things.
I spray wrinkled clothes with the mister to bypass the iron! I also spray my hair for a quick touch up. One a hot day this is great to have while sitting outside!
Everyone has their preferences... what feels right for one person might not work for the next. For me, this is the brush I use the most often.
The 2" width of the bristles helps to get a wider area of paint laid down quickly and the polyester mix of bristles works well with water based paints. The top quality Staalmeester is known for can be felt in the smooth lacquered handle and the smooth bristles.
Top Coat Brush
The One Series by Staalmeester is the best of the best in brushes! I like using this spalter brush to apply top coats as the bristles are fine and lay a smooth finish.
Beeswax Hand Cream
Oh so soft and yummy smelling! It is mildly scented with This luxuriously natural cream is made with ingredients designed to help soothe your skin. Apply to clean hands before painting to help prevent the paint from sticking to your hands, making clean up even easier. Use it two or three times a day and you will notice the improvement of your skin within a week. Mildly scented with natural essential oils of lavender and rosemary.
FOR WORK AREA
A rolling cart is my must have! I use this with every piece I work on. I fill it up the paint I am using on the current piece. I keep sandpaper, primer, rags and other needed items on it. I hang my mister and TSP Alternative bottle on it. It moves around the room with me and keeps me from walking back to my work bench.
FOR RESELL ITEMS
When creating tags for resell items, these Avery removable tags work perfect. You can set up a template in your computer and print them out, saving yourself many hours of work. When your item sells, the sticker tag can easily be removed from item and placed on the sales sheet.
