Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

And I'm sure that some painters have higher standards than others...Someone else with the same discerning eye as myself mentioned the aura lap-lines...I love when the competition settles for sloppy work...It makes me look even better.

I've fired countless "senior" painters with 15+ years experience who think their good painters...I just shake my head and wonder how they have lasted this long in the profession.

anyone heard of adding a little ammonia to a white to help it cover and hide better?

one of my painters mentioned it today, that he was told that from someone else but had never tried it
