City & Guilds and CITB second year painting and decorating apprentices at Borders College enjoyed a presentation and practical session with Kevin and James from Johnstone’s Trade Paint.

After the presentations by Johnstone’s Trade Paint staff and a workshop which involved applying aqua water based gloss onto moulded panels the students then went into competition mode, painting a flat egg-shaped area in one colour to the best possible quality in less than five minutes. The winner, second year apprentice Derek Stoddart received a goodie bag of Johnstone’s products.
