Avoid painting in direct sunlight, especially during summer as the heat in the surface being painted and the sun itself will cause the paint to dry too quickly, resulting in unsightly brush marks and brushes becoming clogged. Always start in the shade and work around the house so that you remain in the shade. Adding a wet edge extender to the paint will assist with paint workability.View all our tips
