My dad was a painter and wallpaper hanger by trade. For all of his working life, and then some. One of the many, many things that he taught me along the way was if you are going to do a job, use the right tools! I guess that's why all of his tools have long outlived him. A very important lesson for artists, for sure, use the right tools and take care of them. Thanks for the lesson Dad! This painting of his wallpaper shears is 6"x6", $100 unframed. Available.
