i saw a painter today (not one of mine) mixing primer into the paint (trade matt) he was about to use on the inside of a garage which already had a couple of very pi**y coats applied some time ago.

he vanished before i got a chance to ask him about it and left his boys swinging rollers around.

i don't see what he's hoping to achieve...anyone have an idea?

Long as they don`t mix other stuff in the paint ....eh, mr. Monkey ;)

Have you seen his telescopic roller pole then Nige?
I`ve seen him with a 6 inch distemper brush - lovely wrist action
