Leading innovators of premium-grade masking tapes, papers and films, Q1®, invites visitors to the Painting and Decorating Show to learn how to ‘mask well, spray faster’ in a comprehensive masterclass on 26thof November at 10.55am, in the Theatre 1 and on 27thof November at 12.25am, in the Theatre 2.  


Following the brand’s debut appearance at the show last year, the Italian manufacturer has since been working alongside spray academies to develop best practice masking techniques designed to speed up the preparation and overall painting of a room. 


This year will see the company’s first masterclass, entitled ‘Mask Well, Spray Faster’, which promises masking tips and spray paint best practice from two industry professionals. It will cover how to spray a room like a pro, why correct preparation saves time, spray techniques and which order to tackle a full room to deliver quality results quicker. 


The Q1® masterclass will be hosted and taught by two seasoned spray professionals, Jamie Bourne and John Coats, both of whom own their own spray-painting academies and will be available for a question and answer session on the day. 


Ionela Stetco, Marketing Manager for Q1® in the UK, comments on the importance of sharing best practice:


“Our products are designed in accordance with direct feedback from the painting and decorating industry. With a portfolio of products which have been designed specifically to meet the industry’s needs, it is only right that we then work with professional decorators to get the very best out of those products. Only then can the cycle of feedback and improvement continue. 


“Q1 products are synonymous with quality and this masterclass has been designed to support both experienced and new sprayers in getting the very best finish, in the most efficient way, on every product.”
