Fixing Hat Banding.


I have painted before but for a couple of reasons I screwed up on the cardinal rule of wet-edge and of course got hat-banding. It's a bathroom in my house and is not a great deal of wall space.



Yes, I know it looks like it was done by banana crazed monkey crack. I had to paint at night but can now work during daylight hours.



I'm using high grade Sherwin Williams flat finish red with tinted primer.

I do not want to do the whole job over if I can avoid it. I have one coat of primer with one coat of paint put on. I don't know that the wall streaks are going to be a problem with the second coat. But if I put on the second coat of paint then re-primed the cut-in that banded, blending it gently into the wall coat then repaint that part will it work.





I have used some of this paint and primer from this batch on a table top and it does cover very well. Any help, comments, or thoughts on what you see as other problems would be of great help.

Thanks,

Brian

i think you mean a crack-crazed monkey using a banana as a brush! lol
red is the hardest color to apply, so it may take more than one more coat to get it nice and even looking.
the streaking should disappear though.

I'm thinking I should try a banana for the second coat unless someone has a better fruit suggestion.

I know about the, "Red Nightmare," that's why I went through 9 different reds before I found what I was looking for. The streaks I was pretty sure would be okay with the second coat, my biggest worry is the banding from the cut-in. But maybe that it's a dark color will be an advantage in this case.

Just put your second coat on, it should be fine. It does look like you will need a third coat to me. Did you use a grey tinted primer?

Well, my broker said that when using the red like that , I may need to put alot of coats on to cover. I wouldn't worry about the banding, just keep adding a coat until you are happy with it. Don't judge your paint job on just one coat, there might be some objection, but I never like it until I put two coats on , and using the shade of red, it will take more coats, doing a fine job there, enjoy

Looks like you might be pushing too hard with the roller as well leaving roller lines.

Two more coats (not unusual for reds)
Cut a wall, roll the wall, move onto the next wall

And yes, don't squeeze the paint out of the roller
Lay it on

Which primer tint? That looks like red-tinted primer instead of grey (which might explain some of the problem). Which SW color are you using?

The primer is the Sherwin Williams color based primer to achieve the final color desired. (Mixed by their specs for the end color.) I always knew I would have to do two and possibly three for the red. I just became really worried sine the banding and streaking was so pronounced.

The second coat did fix it pretty well. It could use a third coat but didn't have the time. I may wind up doing that anyway if I wind up changing out the wood trim along the ceiling. I think you're right about the roller over load, and I am notorious for pressing to hard. I just really suck at painting.

Thank you for all the help it will be a big help for the other rooms when I do them.

Brian
