Painting ceiling and wall (2 diff colors) when both are textured
First off, I apologize in advance if this topic has already been discussed, but I was not able to find it in the search.
I have a two year old home and the ceilings and walls are all textured (orange peel) and are all the same color (light beige/tan). My problem is trying to paint a nice line between the ceiling and the walls.
My wife wants some of the rooms to have the ceiling white and then the walls different colors in each room. We've already tried to paint the laundry room and our master bath, but have come up with the dreaded bleed thru under the tape on the ceilings/trim.
Short of having to go back over everything with a small brush to clean this mess up, is there anything that we can do to first, avoid this problem in the future (technique) and second, what's the best solution to fix our existing mess? I've already tried to run a small bead of calk along the edges, but that just puts calking on the different colored wall which means I have to go and brush along the edge to cover it up.
Am I making any sense? :jester:
Any help at all would be appreciated.
Try a 2 1/2" angle sash brush.
any ideas as to how to avoid this corner problem?
I'd suggest a 1" or 1.5" premium angle sash brush for touching it up until it looks OK
Really, there's no better way
...actually no other way realistically
For the future, the best way is a premium paint, a premium brush, and a steady hand
Tape, as you have seen, can cause more problems then it solves when used to cut lines
...anyone else have any ideas?
