Has any used the "Paint Stick"? It is one of those roller sticks that you suck the paint into the handle instead of using a roller pan. I was curious if they paint evenly, and do they cause a big mess or help cut down on the mess.

Thanks for the info. Mike

mbberg, Nosoup4you is right, useing a 5 gallon bucket and a bucket screen you should be able to apply the paint faster and easier than the gimmicks they have out there. I will challenge anyone useing the paint stick to a rolling race.

I have 2 paintsticks-one regular and one for the bath and hall(smaller) I love them-I'm not sure I could paint with a regular roller now. I just repainted my family room with it 18 x 21 and didn't put down a drop cloth or anything. It's wonderful. The cleanup takes a while but worth it in my opinion. I won't take the challenge and race against a roller because I don't paint that much, but I do think the paint stick is a definite help for the do it yourself weekend warrior!

Oops, not meaning to down anyone who uses the paint stick with satisfactory results, NewDIY thanks for the opinion from a person who uses and likes one, now mbberg has both sides.

I indeed would have the unfair advantage, seeing that painting is my daily routine, as you would over me in your nich .

Thanks again.
