Hello, I am a Handyman. I would consider that approximately 20-30% of my work is made up of small painting projects and/or "touch-up" painting.

I was trained to paint professionally by my ex-husband, who was a professional painting contractor for years in the Chicago area. That was two decades ago, however, and I know that both products and "best-practices" have changed during that time.

I am glad to find this forum to help me hone some rusty skills, and to learn from contemporary professionals, how to better my skills in this area.

Thank you for your forum.

Welcome!

Because you've painted professionally before, there really isn't going to be much of a re-entry curve. Other than the low VOC paints, things haven't changed much.

As always, the key to painting is managing logistics. That separates the competent person from the slap happy painter.

Getrex, I have a newspaper clipping of my great-grandfather (Pinchy Williams) and the caption under his picture says, "An old Painter." He was taking a break from painting a house when a photographer came up to him and asked if he could take his picture.

That'd be pretty cool to see.
