The Idaho Painter 

Chris Berry started The Idaho Painter YouTube channel as a way to help out some of his painting clients who were trying to tackle some paint projects on their own. Little did he know that this little side project he started would take off to become a primary source on YouTube for painting tips, tricks, and training. Chris has a passion for painting and helping other people to fall in love with painting. He holds multiple degrees in Urban Planning and Network Administration and has a background in law enforcement. Even with extensive experience in other sectors of business, Chris has found that through painting he gets to constantly exceed the expectations of his clients, make people happy, and innovate new approaches to an old craft. He has over 25 years of experience in the painting and building trades, which he expertly shares on The Idaho Painter.  

Thanks for sharing your videos, Chris!

Set your tape

After you apply masking tape, run a putty knife, or a 5-in-1 tool, over it to “set” the tape to the trim. This bonds the tape to the surface and helps stop paint from seeping under the tape and up onto the trim.
