Why didn’t I think of this quick-tip? There have been so many times I’ve ended up with clumps and bumps of hard paint or primer on my sandpaper. My solution – throw my sandpaper away and grab a new one!
Here’s a simple solution shared by Jennifer at Trillium Park Designs...
[box] “After applying primer with a foam brush, I use a 220 grit sanding block and a fine grit sanding sponge to get a silky smooth finish. At this point, it only needs to feel smooth to the touch; it doesn’t need to look good! Be sure to occasionally knock the accumulated dust off your sandpaper with a wire brush to prevent hard primer clumps forming on the sandpaper and marring your finish. Onward to the first coat of paint!”[/box]
Take a look at Jennifer’s flawless finish on these MCM pieces. Absolutely gorgeous!
