Painting and wallpapering often require a crucial first step: scraping off what's already there. Dozens of scrapers are available, and your choice should be determined by the task.
Straight scrapers are good for removing softened paint or soaked wallpaper. Specialty scrapers come with curved edges for working on corners and curves..
Some straight scrapers come with plastic handles that increase comfort and make it possible to use more pressure.
Putty knives come in handy before painting to ensure that the surface is smooth. Apply putty to the tip of the knife to fill in cracks or divots in the work surface. Allow the putty to dry before you paint, stain or apply wallpaper to a surface.
