Painters work in a variety of jobs to paint things. Buildings, houses, cars, toys, you name it, and a painter painted it. Painters use a variety of brushes, rollers and electronic spray guns to get the proper coat and technique for quality-looking paint jobs. Typically, painters use drop cloths and cover or remove anything that doesn’t need painting, prepare surfaces to accept paint by scraping or sanding, apply primer or base coats, buy and mix paints, decide on colors and finishes for the final product. Some painters use specialized safety equipment and ventilators to stay safe on the job.

Painters work indoors and outdoors, and some might need special equipment to reach tall buildings or structures.
