Painting smooth drywall follow up ? Blending in stipple
 
All.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Per the last thread, I have had all my walls skimmed to a level 5.

We are now priming using the info on the last post.

Have a new question ----

I cut all my corners with a good brush and am now rolling using 3/8 nap purdy rollers.

How do you pro's blend in the stipple from the roller and the smooth from the paint brush in the areas like interior corners and where the roofline meets the wall?


The rollers do not make it all the way into the corners so you are left with a half inch or so of smooth from the brush which I am guessing will reflect light differently when it is all said and done.

Any info is appreciated and so far so good.

That seems really picky...but, sounds like you're going to want a different roller if a smooth, smooth, smooth finish is what you want.

The roller texture is fine .. but there is a difference between roller texture and the brush texture for the corners ..

I did not know if you just leave it and it blends fine or if you have a technique to make it all the same ..

As far as rollers go, I have used the smooth rollers on a bathroom and it pretty much comes out the same but takes a year to do it which is why I came here to ask ..

I just went and looked again and unless you are a pro, I would think you could not tell the difference between using a 3/8 nap and a smooth roller on the walls, they both leave a bit of texture..

I'm at a loss on this one and await a paint pro to step in. Been in Architecture for over 12 years now and honestly never had this topic be an issue before...there is a first for everything!

In all honesty the only way I can figure to remedy it is to paint one wall at a time. Roll all the way into the corner to where you smear paint on the opposite wall from the end of the roller. Clean up the smear with a brush. Allow the painted wall to dry and then do the other side. The stipple from first wall will remain even as you brush out the smears. Very time consuming though for such an inconspicuous detail...

Level 5 - no roller! Brush everything!

:eek: say what??

I believe you are getting way to picky. I have painted countless rooms and no one has every picked up on what you think is going to happen. Paint as you have and move on.:yes:

chrisn is right!

My comment about brushing was only a tiny bit facetious, however.

Last time I posted on smooth walls I mentioned I was not looking for perfection and got blasted ..

Just making sure I am on track.
