Picture framing: Darker color where ceilings, windows, doors and corner areas were cut-in with a brush.
Picture framing causes: Improper cutting-in technique using a brush with too much paint and not doing feather-edge brushing. Not maintaining a wet edge by cutting-in too much at one time. Poor roller technique, leaving a wide space between the natural break and the wall.
Picture framing solutions: Keep a wet edge and use a feather brush cutting-in technique. Roll into the cut-in areas before they’re dry and as close as possible to the natural break. More critical when the temperature is above 90ºF. Stir periodically to avoid paint thickening.
Primers & interior finishes: Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Select a top quality interior paint in the color and sheen of your choice.
