The True Applicators also hold a LOT of paint - which is both good and bad. I followed the damp instructions but learned quickly to spritz it with water between loadings or it will soak up so very much of your paint. I absolutely love how quickly it makes painting large flat areas and the insides of drawers. The finish is perfectly smooth and bautiful! It surprisingly cleans up easily. Be careful though - it feels as if it dries quickly but the inside will still be damp. I used a blow dryer, held open the applicator and slowly blowed it dry while keeping the blow dryer in motion. Overall, I love it except for how much paint it uses. That is probably operator malfunction. I will probably cut one of the two in half so I can have the benefits of it wothout it having so much surface area to absorb paint. I'll keep the other whole and use it for extra large areas.
