you know I love your vids Jeff. and ironically I just painted a ceiling ... in a bath, while admittedly not quite with as much care as you did here  It's interesting, I have never tried using a Stiff brush for cutting in, but it does kinda make sense. I like the angled "sash" brush as well, and at a lot of times reach for a Short-Cut brush (2" to 3" long brush with a flexible handle) - the thinking is get the tool closer for detailed work. I have to admit I am little on the fence about the Press and Seal tip... instead usually opting for "priming" my brushes (and rollers) before painting. cleaning thoroughly, re-sheathing and hanging with bristles facing downward. If I could add a million dollar tip: Every paint job should include a bucket of soapy (another use for that Dawn) water - when working with latex. Often overlooked but totally invaluable. cheers and thanks. ~jb

+Jeff Patterson I certainly have been known to use saran wrap for temporary storage, (either that or a home center bag) -- especially when the brush cannot be immediately cleaned. but too often, at least in my parts, that becomes a lazy man's go to. In general, I think about the shape of the brush (and especially if you don't do an ultra-perfect clean) ... tips I've heard through the years and that are similar - wrap loosely in news or builders paper after it is cleaned and before it is re-sheathed ... still a good looking job in this video.

I originally met the team from Studio M through design excursions to Brizo's Fashion Week in NYC and to the GE Monogram Experience in Kentucky. I have since followed their work through outlets like Houzz and Facebook, as well as via their highly-stylized talkDesign newsletter. I continually marvel at their consistent ability to create beautifully elegant spaces. Prominent bloggers too, Studio M's Eric Miller has both shared his expertise on our blog, but was also gracious enough to recently host a 3 part series I had written. As a writer, editor, social media go to, I'd recommend snatching up any opportunity to work with Eric or this firm.
