Problem with Behr paint
 
As I said in another thread, I think I'll see if I can get my money back even though it's a custom mixed Behr paint because it's disgusting stuff. Then I'll buy a trowel (I don't know this 5-1 tool you speak of) and take my time "cutting in", resting the angled brush against the trowel and putting the whole contraption against the wall, boom, it should be done. I'll let you know how it works.

Finally we get to the point as to why the cut-in is not looking good. BEHR PAINT

As for cutting in, I notice I'm using a crappy paint (one of my first times painting) and the cutting in with a brush before painting still leaves streaks, cutting in with a sponge brush does the trick wonderfully but using painters tape leaves a sloppy line about 1/16" between painted and non painted surface. My father always used an angled brush and a cement or spackeling trowel to make the clean lines. Are there better ways to do this outside of calling a professional?

uh, yeah, crappy paint was mentioned. :)
