      I am painting a 50’s red and white speckled linoleum floor.

      At the USITT Rockin’ Rollers Seminar, one of the presenters showed a cut roller they used for that exact pattern. It made their process so fast!!

      Do any of you guys have such a roller? Curious how you made it.





        if you can’t find a roller, on top of your base coat, you can spatter and drag the necessary colours to get a really good facsimile. Best if you can do each colour separately, and work the floor in manageable sections.

          I have made this type of roller before. We used the core of a paper roll, and adhered dots and strips of thick felt and 3M scrub pads. The core fit perfectly over a standard roller cover. The adhesive was Super 88 food adhesive, but I have also used contact cement, the flammable kind.

          We rolled it onto the wet base coat and dragged through it. Worked like a charm.
