Not sure if your pulling my leg here but I'll bite. Most claps are 3 1/4 - 3 3/4 wide so I prefer 3 inch straight edge brushes. We only back brush the first coat and then spray the second coat with some floetrol for a even drying surface.

I used a 4" for a great many years and somewhere along the way switched to a 3-1/2 in general my brush usage has been getting smaller over the years.

It's cause as we get older the brushes seem heavier.

Wait til you're 80 and cutting in a room with a 2 inch brush

I haven't had to cut back my brushes yet

Even if I'm out of the bucket, I'm not sure I would trust many other to paint my house for me

It might take a lot longer, but whatever keeps you busy

Aura "Satin" was made to compete with Duration "Satin" but the sheen is a little high. I like how it looks and how "thick" and "deep" it looks. It almost looks like a elastomeric or a Rhino Sheild type coating. I do think the sheen is too high for a satin.

You guys re-mask everything? I guess I would do sections but after your 1st coat there appears to be 0 masking left. I suppose stick time would become a factor if you are doing the whole house 1 coat a time. Nice looking house.

I agree. Good paint for sure. I like it better than Duration. I'm currently on a job using Aura for the first time and was going to use Satin. The BM rep recommened going with the Low Luster on the siding and Satin on the trim. I'm glad he did. Stuff dries really quick. I do recommend using the extender with this product for sure.
