Sertoman of the Day: Jim Rees was born in Springfield, Illinois on 14 June 1933, but was raised in Bloomington. He went to the Univ. of Illinois for 4-1/2 years.

Program:   Mike Magee introduced Bob Bennett a Master Painter out of Lafayette, CO. Bobs many years as a painter has gained him great insight into the pros and cons of different brands of paint. All the paint manufacturers have their good brands and their bad brands; it just takes experience to know which is which. Bob can do a real good job of matching the color you now have or mix the color you want.


Bob mentioned how adding Floetrol to your latex paints helps the paint flow better, eliminating brush marks, lubricates paint to reduce friction and tear on spray gun parts and tips, extends paint’s drying time to create faux finishing effects, etc etc. For oil based paint, use Penetrol. For more info on either product, search the internet. (720) 364-4858 cell or (303) 666-8797 office
