How Point ‘n Paint Works
Point ‘n Paint consists of a teardrop-shaped applicator-and-pad, a “no-spill” tray with wheel, and mini edger; they are all made from bright green and purple plastic. To use Point ‘n Paint, they say to fill the tray and roll the reusable applicator over the wheel which will load it with paint. They say it can hold 5 times as much paint as a roller and 8 times as much as a paint brush.
Then, place the paint-coated applicator on the surface you are looking to paint, “point” towards a direction, and push. They claim Point ‘n Paint will evenly apply paint across surfaces rough or smooth and that it doesn’t drip. They claim you don’t have spend time and money on masking with expensive blue tape. They say you can glide around moldings, zip around corners, and paint circles around fixtures, making it the best edger ever. They state the set-back design keeps paint on the wall and nowhere else. They say to use the smaller purple mini edger for tight spaces and “stuff you’d go crazy” trying to paint otherwise.
They claim you can easily paint ceilings with no splatters – just remove the purple handle to expose a swivel pole adaptor (pole is not included.) If you do use Point ‘n Paint with the pole, they claim this removes the hassle of going up and down ladders. They add Point ‘n Paint is great for stains, and you will have no runs or brush strokes.
The charismatic Aussie spokesman for Point ‘n Paint takes the product through the paces in the infomercial, quickly coating different surfaces and even dangling it over his head to prove that it won’t drip.
