How to get the best results from your Coral Decorating Set

Taking a few easy tool-care steps before, during and after use will extend tool lifespan and ensure optimum performance. We’ve shared some useful tips to help you achieve impressive results every time.

Q: How should I prepare my paint application tools before use?

A: Before first use, pre-wash the brush or roller to remove any debris. For best results on every use, pre-wet with a suitable thinner and remove excess for a slightly damp, primed state that will accept the most paint. Avoid using water-based and solvent-based coatings with the same tool. Always refer to the coating manufacturer’s recommendations before starting application.

Q: What surface preparation is needed before painting?

A: If needed, use a scraper or sandpaper to ensure all surfaces to be painted are free from loose or flaking paint. Fill any cracks or holes with a suitable filler or sealant and sand down before wiping the area clean. Before painting, ensure surfaces are free from dust and dirt; wiping or washing them with a little soap in water or a sugar soap works well.

Q: What’s the most effective application method for painting a neat edge line (‘cutting in’)?

A: Dip the brush into the paint around a third of the way down the filaments to prevent overloading, then tap gently against the side of the paint container to remove excess. About an inch away from the area you want to cut in to, start at the top and work down, holding the paintbrush like a pencil so that it is parallel to the edge. Gently steer your brush towards the corner, using light, even strokes as you carefully follow the direction of the line, working back into the wet edge.

Q: What roller application method will deliver the best results?

A: Dip the roller lightly into the paint; the paint should cover less than half of the roller, then roll backwards and forwards on the tray ramp to evenly distribute paint on the roller cover. Apply the paint to the surface with a large zigzag pattern, then fill in the space with criss-cross strokes. Once covered, level the finish by laying-off with long, parallel strokes. PRO-TIP: Rolling demands a light touch. No matter what paint-roller cover you’re using, always let the paint do the work. Keep the roller cover loaded with paint and use only enough pressure to release and spread the paint. Pushing on the roller to squeeze out the last drop of paint can result in ‘tramlines’, uneven coverage and finish and should be avoided.

Q: What’s the best way to clean my paint tools after use?

A: First, remove excess paint from the tool, then wash with a suitable thinner. For water-based coatings, use water. For solvent-based coatings, use white spirit. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a clean towel. Never soak, use hot water, or apply direct heat to paint tools. For rollers, spin to shape, stand on end and dry naturally.

Q: How should I store paint tools during and after use to prolong their lifespan?

A: To prevent dry-out and avoid dust and dirt entering the paint during short breaks in painting or overnight on longer projects, protect paint tools with an airtight cover like Coral’s Seal & Save Storage Wrappers, which keep painting tools fresh for up to 3 weeks! Once your project is complete, store tools in a cover or original packaging in a dry, dust-free place, to keep them in top condition for future use.

Q: Are there any time-saving tips to speed up my project?

A: Use Coral Paintwiz Scuttle and Kettle Liners in your paint container or tray to avoid the hassle and mess of washing out your paint containers daily or when switching paint colours. To prevent paint dry-out during breaks, simply tie the drawstrings to keep paint fresh.

    Do not buy any other rollers !! I’ve been renovating my house and bought many – these are the best. The pain coverage is surreal. Excellent value and easy to clea

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersImpressed with the quality (ex painter and decorator) for the price. Good absorption and paint coverage from the roller, leaving a reasonably flat finish. The tray was cracked when it arrived due to poor packaging by the supplier. It arrived in a paper bay (not Amazon packaging) resulting in this damage. Amazon refunded but it has caused an irritating inconvenience.

    This is a great set for a newbie like me. However the so called no loss brush shed so many bristles that I stopped using it.
    The locking system is brilliant and the mini rollers work well for corners.

    This is as described and at a good price..but unfortunately the packer had it in same box as heavier items and one foot arrived broken off. Can probably still use. Just wish Amazon thought things out better as second fragile item broken in a week!!!

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersThe rollers aren’t great. I’ve always bought mine from Asda before and they’ve been really sturdy.
    With this set, the rollers fall off ALOT. Which obviously isn’t ideal. I’ve been painting doors and where there are books and cracks in the door, the end of rollers tear off when painting the doors.
    Won’t be buying again. Highly recommend the ones from Asda

    Value for money. I complained about the delivery on the last review and it was my mistake so I’m taking full responsibility for a bad review as the courier did in fact leave it with a resident as couldn’t get a answer. My apologies. Easy to use and easy to clean.

    Used the cotton type rollers for walls, and they were very good with silk paint.
    Went on to use small rollers for gloss paint, and undercoat they came up with a flawless deep shine, so the wife was pleased.
    Brushes are good, but could be better, or thicker, but we’re fine for cutting in etc.
    Very pleased with price, and build.

    Everything I needed in one pack including a paint brush for edging. They thought of it all including types of rollers for different types of paint. Such good value with so many rollers, paint brush and tray. I highly recommend item and seller.

    I got these on a whim. Noticed a few marks on the walls that I thought could do with covering. I was really impressed with how easy the rollers covered with just one coat! I liked the lock function on them. Easy to use and really good value. Cleaned well with hot soapy water.

    What is there not to like with this set, brilliant.
    My Husband nicks a lot of my things so I got this and I love it. Once you have your masking tape set up you are all set. Washing them afterwards was so easy as well. They don’t go back to the original white if you are using coloured paint but nothing else changes. All in all, very happy.

    This kit was great value at less than a tenner and for everything included was cheaper and better quality than sets previously purchased at B&Q. I was painting walls in two rooms, kitchen cupboards, skirting boards and tiles so used pretty much everything in the set, washing in between. If I could change anything it would be to also include a smaller tray for the smaller rollers but that’s just me being picky 🙂 a lot of reviews saying the tray had split and the rollers were bad but I had no issues at all and used both silk and Matt emulsion paint, tiles paint, wood paint and cupboard paint. No ‘fluff’ or disintegrating with any and found the brush to be great for edging (I hate frog tape so always need a decent brush for cutting in). Will definitely repurchase for my next redecorating task!

    Great kit for painting

    What you’d expect for the price. They do the job nicely. There was some fluff loss on the striped fabric rollers but not a significant amount. For the money they are good value and we’ve used for over 4 rooms and still going strong!

    Cracking little set that did the trick painting two walls of my room today! Would really recommend, no bristles lost. Rollers really easy to wash as well, good as new for next time 🙂

    Done loads of painting I’m my time and it always so annoying when the roller decides to leave. This doesn’t happen with these and I’d never use anything else.

    Good product for low level painting. We live in a new build with low ceilings so could manage comfortably with the short handles and a ladder.

    So, I’ve not used the full kit but let me say this:

    -The whole package is cheapest I could find with the most stuff in it.

    – the brush has a can opener which is genius

    -brush quality is good.

    -mini foam rollers – i used them to paint tile and they worked great! Although one broke and the foam sleve kept falling off!

    The rest of the kit looks fine. I’d recommend.

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersVery good kit for general wall painting, need a cost effective set to redecorating existing painted walls, small and large rollers are very well built, the locking mechanism is very handy to prevent the head from disconnecting during use. Only issue I had with the larger roller is the end cap seems to fall of when in use.

    The brush has a handy can lid opener on the end (use to dislodge the lid from a small lip), sturdy handle. Main issue is minor strands of brush hairs do detach from the metal grip when using thicker paints – I would suggest washing the brush, dry, and ensure loose hairs are removed before use.

    – I have not used the smaller foam rollers (for gloss) and can not provide an opinion of the quality of application.
    – I did not use the plastic tray during painting, however I would suggest placing the tray on a washable, non-slip decorators/preparation mat when used as the ‘non-dipped’ end of the tray’s legs are quite thin with minimal ‘foot’ surface to fully resist movement when being ‘rolled’ upon.

    Post-Use (Cleaning)

    – Brush and rollers were easy to clean under a cold tap
    – I would suggest initially drying with a cloth to remove most moisture then air dry.

    Overall a very good kit for beginners, redecorating and patching paintwork.
