QUESTION: Dear Stephen

Thank you.

Actually why i raised this query
was in our country India, painters painting the house walls are always using a Brush and never a Spray device.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Prashant,

A standard painting practice here, especially for new work, is to apply the paint with a sprayer then "back roll" with a paint roller which is wetted with paint.  This helps to even out the coating, gives better adhesion, and provides a slight (desirable) texture to the finished surface.
