Here we have a project where we show the importance of using caulk when hand-painting a new wardrobe. It is sometimes called “painters mate” or it may also be called “carpenters mate”. As we see here in the photo, the attention to detail is vital as it drastically improves the final outcome. Here we used a narrow hole on the nozzle then whilst squeezing the gun, ran the nozzle along all the gaps, wiping the surface with a damp cloth to finish. Caulking takes time to do but is worth it when one views the end result. Caulk is used frequently when painting and decorating, and this is a good illustration as to why.
Cut the nozzle at the end of the tube, setting the width of the caulk to be delivered when squeezing the gun. It is very important to make the right size hole, which all depends on the cracks and gaps you are filling.
It does take a lot of practice to get this right and it takes time, so you can appreciate what you are paying for when you get hand-finished, painted furniture!
As promised here is the finished article without handles or knobs.
