Hi, I’m Vicky Brown of Brown’s Decorating and I’m a self-employed painter and decorator based in Wigan. I undertake mainly private domestic work and some smaller commercial projects.

Due to health problems I have been looking to move away from painting and decorating and work from home. I also have a young daughter whom I would love to spend more time with.

I originally came up with the idea for PaintNetz™ around 2 years ago after thinking that there must be an easier way to get paint from the tin to the scuttle minus the dreaded ‘bits’.  I found it difficult pouring from large containers of paint into a sieve that was balanced on the edge of the scuttle, and often ended up either knocking the sieve in or pouring it over the edges. Cleaning the sieve afterwardswas also a pain (particularly in the customer’s sink!).

I designed PaintNetz purely to make my life easier and it was only when another decorator used the product and liked it that I decided I would try and bring them to market.  My hobby is sewing so I was able to make the nets and test them myself before I started selling them online.

My journey so far it has been an exciting yet challenging one at times but it seems it has been worth the effort – I am pleased to say that I am now supplying PaintNetz™ to a number of major distributors both online and in-store. I am currently working on other products for the PaintNetz range.

The PaintNetz range at present consists of ScuttleNetz, KettleNetz and I am launching HopperNetz shortly – these will fit the hoppers on airless spray units and reduce blockages

PaintNetz filters fit directly over the scuttle or kettle allowing you to pour directly from the tin with no mess, they are easy to wash out by hand and can be re-used. They also come in a variety of different sizes and gauges to suit coatings from emulsion to gloss/varnish.

Key features of PaintNetz™ include:

  • PaintNetz™ filters out debris quickly and effectively
  • PaintNetz™ washes out in seconds by hand
  • PaintNetz™ are re-usable and cost effective
  • PaintNetz™ come in variety of sizes and gauges
  • PaintNetz™ Save you time!

I would just like to say a massive thank you to the members of the Decorator’s Forum who have supported me throughout, the people who have tested and reviewed the product and of course those who have made purchases.
