Default Summer Painting, Fall & Spring Teaching

Hello all. Long time reader and finally joined. I teach at a university in New Hampshire during the academic year and have been painting as an independent contractor for three summers/winters, but worked with my father flipping homes for years before that.

The big reason I finally joined the forum is I recently bought a cache of 40 "new old stock" Purdy brushes for quite the price. Included are several brushes/bristles that I am not 100% sure of the ideal purpose. Honestly, my only experience with Purdy brushes was a 2.5" Pro-Extra that I used like 3 times before I gave up on it. I know, I know....if I don't like Purdy why did I buy a cache of 40 Purdy brushes? Well, I couldn't resist the bargain.

Another reason is that I would really like to get into restoration finishing instead of the paint-by-numbers, assembly line homes built by a few local builders. If you live anywhere near the NH Seacoast, I am sure you could guess the construction company. The painting company that buys most of my summer time recently got a bid on a 1850s home in a historic district and despite the other guys on the crew hating all the extra work, the restorative work has been so exciting for me that I really hate when the bell rings to go home.

So, in short, hope to learn and apply a few things while I am painting away in the summers. Thanks all.
