What is a paint scraper?
A manual paint scraper is an old-school yet very reliable tool used for removing paint. It takes some muscle grease to use one properly but if you take it slow, with a few breaks, you will get to the finish line in removing paint from a wall, furniture, or object.
Putty knives and scrapers can perform multiple scraping and smoothing functions, helping to make drywall and window installation much easier. Putty knives can apply compound around window pane edges cleanly, helping the glass to stay in place. Scrapers and spatulas have wider blades to scrape and spread drywall mud more efficiently. Joint knives have extra-wide blades to help cover up drywall seams and holes.
A putty knife is a versatile and useful hand tool that can be used to help with applying several filler materials such as wood filler, drywall compound and others. It can also be used as a scraping tool to remove residue as well as having several other uses. And putty knives can be particularly useful when working with certain materials you would struggle to clean afterwards. With any putty knife, there are different blade sizes and handle materials, depending upon personal preference and the nature of the job.
While it can get a little confusing as to whether you need a paint scraper or a putty knife, the main thing is to know and understand what projects you’re going to be working on and which type of tool would be best.
The basic rule is that if you are spreading something, such as a drywall compound or wood filler, the putty knife is the one you want. So just simply associate putty knife with spreading and of course, paint scraper with scraping.
Paint scrapers have a much more durable blade to be able to scrape paint off a very old item that is normally hard to take things off of. Paint scrapers are much more flexible than putty knives which is why there are so many different sizes and different blades for putting knives than paint scrapers. Paint scrapers can be basically narrow or wide and of course, you can pay more money for the more durable ones that will last longer but when it comes to putty knives, you really need to know what you will need ahead of time for the project you are working on. Now that you know the difference between a putty knife and a paint scraper, it is time to grab the proper tool and get to work on that project you have been putting off.
What types of Putty Knives are there?
The putty knife blade is an important part of the tool, as this will determine the applications it is suitable for. There are three main blade types, which can be made of either plastic or metal and can be flexible or stiff.
A flexible blade is used for spreading soft material around, such as putty, plaster, caulk, or grout, whereas a stiff blade is specifically used to scrape materials away, such as wet plaster, wet grout, or other soft materials, and even harder materials like dried paint.
