Sweeping Brush - Jockey


These notes support the Painting and Decorating Course run by The DIY School in the North West in Stockport near Manchester.

Whilst obviously useful for cleaning the floors, a clean sweeping brush can be used in the process of hanging paper on a ceiling.

Consider wrapping the head of the brush with some clean wallpaper off cut and masking tape. This will then allow you use the brush to press the paper firmly on to the ceiling. This is also sometimes known as a paper jockey.

Placing your tray and roller in a sealed plastic bag at the end of the day can keep the paint fresh overnight.
