Before painting you will need to prepare your skirting boards. If your skirting boards are already painted you will need to thoroughly clean and sand the surface.

You will then need to run a strip of masking tape along the top and bottom of the skirting board, to ensure clean lines.

Once this is done start painting at the top. Use the edge of the brush ( Preferably a 2 inch brush) to cut in with long sweeping movements. Then it’s time to move to the flat part of the skirting. For this part, make sure you apply enough paint to your brush making short vertical movements.
