Tips for painting outside corners without edge buildup?


It seems I really have to struggle to paint outside corners well. I usually end up with the outside corner edge of the wall I'm painting looking pretty good, only to have drip or build up on the corner edge of the joining wall on the other side. When I try to smooth out that wall, I just transfer the drip/build up to the edge of the wall I just painted on the other side (talking about using a roller).

Any tips or suggestions on how to paint an outside corner edge with out gooping up the other side?

Paint out a section of wall next to the outside corner. As your roller becomes less saturated, just before you would reload it, go over the corner VERY lightly. Do the same on the other side of the corner. The reason your getting the bead and chasing it back and forth is the roller is to loaded with paint and/or your applying to much pressure.

Thanks!

Probably "and/or" I'm a little heavy handed.
