    hey bobby

    there is a lot to be said for using good quality rollers (harris etc)
    it is imperative that before using the roller you rub up and down it (a little like a sign you might use at some one you don't care for very much) if you catch my drift,.. then with a wet hand repeat,.. this should remove any loose fur,.. also check that the roller is no fluffier than is needed for the job, hope this helps,.. hate paintin and i've dne a lot

    get a paint pad - fine bristles and quicker to apply...good at cutting in- doesn't soak up the paint,the coverage goes further no paint spatter up your arm from using it ...










    or you could just drop a grenade in a paint tin - vacate the room wait for the bang - job done

    I third the paint pads. No fluff, streaks and really quick.

    If you are painting the walls. I recomend a paint pad. They are brilliant. I find with a roller no matter how carefull I am, I always end up looking like a badger, with the paint that has "flicked" off.
