    a paint pad means, for carrying paint to be applied to the first surface, which has a peripheral edge and is secured to the base upon the second face thereof; and

    spacer means, extending outwardly from the body portion of the base, for spacing the peripheral edge of the paint pad means from and out of contact with the second surface while applying paint to the first surface, the outermost points of the spacer means defining a closed linear boundary whose perpendicular projection, in a plane in which the paint pad means lies, completely surrounds and is spaced from the peripheral edge of the paint pad means.
