This is a video of a guy painting a 6 panel door; it is not me. If you could watch and see if you see any glaring errors and a general critique.



Mods if posting this link is a No No please kill it.

A bit slow and not as meticulous as myself. He played with those little panels for an hour. He overshoots on the long runs, hope that doesn't dry too fast-he'll have paint running against the grain. Overall score=6.5

He's better than a HO though :thumbsup:

He was suppose to do all the insides first..then use a hot dog roller for the outsides....and I didn't like his attitude...and where is his kiddie pool?

If he'd quit wiping all the paint off his brush off every time he dipped he'd get it done faster. But hey, at least he took the door knob off.

I hate to say it but ever since this video was posted, I've been thinking of setting up the cam at a job a get a video of me doing the same thing. Give you all something more to laugh at. :yes:
A video of you painting a door would be welcomed by me. I have to learn from any and all sources as I am self-taught and have little exposure to pro painters.

A video of me painting a door would be inconclusive as the camera would either run out of storage space or battery power before I was through.
Sloooow...like a herd of turtles.

I don't think I'm slow as that, but surely not the fastest either. I'm sure my camera would last the duration, but concerned that it might be a pretty big file to upload. I do know that I will be hanging a big mural up in a casino in PA in a couple weeks, and we will be taking some video of that.

It's alway a neat idea to post a pic of a sprayed door and claim it to be the one you brushed (with poor technique) in a video over a year ago.
