WFMW: Ballpoint Paint Pens

July 8, 2008 at 10:07 pm (Uncategorized)

I didn’t have a WFMW idea until I read Shannon’s post and I remembered this wonderful tool that is on my list of things to get one of these days.

Rubbermaid’s “Paint Buddy Touch-up Tool”. It allows you to store paint for a fast and easy touch-up. Just fill it with paint and it’s always available to cover scuffs, nicks and marks. When you squeeze, a valve opens to let paint flow onto the blending roller. The roller’s flocking blends the paint so there are no brush marks to reveal the touch-up. Paint Buddy allows you store leftover paint inside the tool where it stays fresh.

When finished, close the valve, wash the roller or throw it away, and give Paint Buddy a quick rinse under warm water. Put back the old roller (or put in a new one) and the cap, and Paint Buddy stores the paint until you need it again.

Our house is painted in about 8 different colors and 8 of these would sure take up a lot less room than 8 mostly empty gallons of paint.

Back to Shannon’s for more WFMW.

    I saw these a long time ago and had completely forgotten about them. We are getting ready to re-paint our house (with at least six different colors) so they are going on my wish list, too!

    Those look awesome! Not sure if I could get the big guy to use them…he does most of the painting around our house. Cool idea!!

    I cannot get the top off of this thing to put the paint into it. I have tried to ask many places on the Internet how to refill it, and all they tell me is how
    to replace the roller.

    Hope you can tell me how to do it without breaking it.

    Thank you.
