I have a lot of flat panels to turn white from pine and I wondered what the best min rollers are. When I have used gloss rollers, the foam type, the solvent tends to break the foam up after a short while and these leaves debris on the finish. Has anyone found the best type of roller to use please ??

Many thanks

DWD

The other kind of mini rollers should be fine. Preferably one that's been used in emulsion so it's done it's shedding, but if not, not a problem as you will no doubt be flatting off between coats.

I was thinking of using the tufted rollers as with BIN I usually have to flaten it anyway. I do not have any used mini emulsion mini rollers as I always bin them :lol:

Cheers for that Fitzy :thumbright:

I don’t know how to insert link. Decorating Direct, who are really good.
These are superb: Fossa Silver-Steel Flocked Foam Mini-Rollers. Note FLOCKED.
Been using on panels with oil eggshell. No shedding. Dip in spirit after using and wrap in tin foil.
8.68 for ten but postage is 4.50. Still well worth-it. You can get a small scuttle and frame plus ten
of these in another deal. Just checked this again- this is the one to buy. 8.53.
I think Fitzy uses Decorating Direct. Hope this is of some help.

Just read your post again- you don’t say what sort of BIN you are using.

I am using the shellac based Zinsser BIN and that tends to do in the foam based rollers. I am painting some pine finish bedroom furniture white. I will disassemble as much as I can to make the painting easier, hence the roller approach. This is the last bit of 'brown' in our house. :lol:

I was checking my supplies and found that I only have foam rollers so I had a look on Screwfix and bought some of these https://www.screwfix.com/p/harris-contr ... pack/76322

I will report back how they go.

Thanks for the input guys :thumbright:

Only the shellac one. To be fair I notice one or two people refer to all the zinsser primer range as "BIN".

I did a couple of coats of BIN today on my job using the mini rollers above. It laid it on really smoothly and although it shed a few bits of fibre in the main it was pretty good. I will use one tomorrow to put on some acrylic satin and see how that goes.
