Painting tip: petroleum jelly

After watching a recent episode of Super Scrimpers, I heard about a great painting tip!

Everyone knows that paint can be a nightmare to wash off when it dries on your hands. Gloss is even harder to get off your skin! This tip I learned is supposedly the end to all of the above. According to Super Scrimpers painting tips, if you cover the backs of your hands with a thin layer of petroleum jelly it acts as a barrier and deters any excess paint from drying on to your skin – perfect solution right!?

I’m yet to try this method, in theory it will definitely work. However, I imagine that if you over do the application of petroleum jelly then the paint brush will possibly slip across your skin when you are applying paint or gloss.

Have any of you guys tried this method? Did it work!?
