hi everyone,

im a painter in australia, been in the trade for 10yrs and have wide range of experience. its to hard to list all of what i've done but basically we have 2 companys house/commercial painting and line marking & floors. i can perform every aspect of my trade down to the decorative finishes and can do it confidently at least what i've learnt here anyway.

i import most of my tools and brush's from america, pretty well because there is no variety here and what is here is mostly crap, i even import my uniforms lol. so will be searching on here for what tools are good quality and perform well

i also joined up here to see how different tradies from different countries paint and maybe take on some advice and apply it here.

thanks
