    “The Craftsman Way” Summer edition illustrates Painting in Partnership’s commitment to be a “custodian” of the paint industry’s past. You can see how we repatriated a unique book written in 1887 and an extensive collection of “period” paint color cards from the 20’s. You will also get the details on our two coolest springtime projects. In the newsletter, we answer two customer questions on these subjects: rusty nails and peeling paint on brick. Finally, this issue features antique moisture meters in our Memorabilia Corner.
