question on crappy paint job??


Ok I painted a ceiling after textureing.The first two coats were crappy paint and looked like crap and someone on here told me to get better paint so I did and it looks way better except where the walls meet the ceiling.
I can not get rid of the cut in marks.I am wondering if either when I cut in
I did it way to thick and it is making it look like the paint underneath but really its just smoother.
Or do I need to prime around the edges again.
The first paint I used was that paint that's purple when wet and dries white.It looked like crap.
All kinds of unevenness and roller marks.
Now I am using BHER and it looks nice except the cut in marks.
I wish I was not so anal.But I will be embarresd for people to see this
I mean it looks bad.
Thanks Doug

It could be a number of reasons... but the solution is...

Flush the Glidden and Bher down the toilet....(not literally) go to your local Ben Moore Dealer and pick up some REAL ceiling paint...

I suppose you could go to Sherwin Williams too...

Muralo and California have a good ceiling product...

Just ask your paint rep...

Stay away from the box stores when it comes to paint... unless quality isnt an issue...

Just my opinion....

I couldn't have said it any better
I can't think of anything to add...oh, a crappy brush may emphasize the problem, get a good one, Purdy, Corona, Wooster...not the Home Depot Purdys either-they are 1/2 the paint store Purdys...really

Ok, check this out. What the other 2 guys said is so true...good paint and brushes are essential. The typical homeowner doesnt usually know what is good, so asking is the first step.

Now, you might want to try this as well, it seems to work for me when done well. Go to your local paint store and pick up some 2-3" 3M blue painters tape. Make sure if you have delicate walls to get the right tape. Also, pick up a small wizz roller and some 4" roller covers. Tape all of the tops of your walls all around the room very well, right up tight to the ceiling. You can even double up the tape. Next you want to use the small roller as your cutting in tool. Paint all the edges of the ceiling just as you would if you brushed them all. And always work quickly trying to keep a wet edge the whole time...no breaks!

Basically, doing this helps you have the same roller texture throughout.

Good luck, you can email me if you want anymore help with this problem.

I have a question about paint? I just textured my living room ceiling and primed it with Kilz 2 and then painted it with behr flat white ceiling paint.I did two bed rooms before I did the living room.
The bed rooms turned out pretty good but this living room did not turn out so good.
I can see shadows from the joist's which I am sure I just have to put up with but there are areas where it looks like the paint just did not cover good.
The question I have is what paint should I use? And is there any thing That would help hide the shadows.
Does BM have a good ceiling paint and would it hurt to just go ahead and just paint right over the behr paint?
Thanks Doug

A fresh coat of Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams ceiling paint applied with good quality brushes and roller sleeves right over the Behr will give that ceiling the best look that it can get
If it doesn't look good after that it would probably be a structure or drywall problem
