    Take a serious look at using Ice Fusion rollers for a spray like finish.

    Thanks for the recommendation.
    This roller seems to have mixed reviews...and some say the Hamilton Perfection is better quality. Hmm.

    Have you tried it yourself?

    What are you trying to achieve?

    Despite being given a clear recommendation which you've only half heartedly accepted, you're still pushing for another. There are two professional decorators that contribute regularly on here (@Astramax and @Wayners ) both of whom give great advice, a couple of occasional pro's and a plethora of experienced DIYers.

    1) If Wayners agrees you've belittled the response you've already had
    2) If he doesn't - you're no better off as you still don't have a decision

    Some days...

    Not as such. The opinion or advice of MORE THAN ONE professional for any product or trade is better than the input of just one. Helps to make a better informed decision.
    I am not trying to belittle anyone (that's what you think) and value everyone's input on this forum.

    Thanks for your concern nonetheless :)

    Depends on how you paint. Pressure. Roller loading frequency etc. What one thinks is great another will struggle. Just try one or two types and see what you think

    As Wayners has highlighted the skill is in the application, judging the paints consistency are all important.
