uneven painti


I've recently painted and did the ceiling trim where the wall and ceiling connect. I Painted that last and now the trimming is uneven with the color of the wall. I used two coats for the walls and trims. How can I fix it? Thank you

Probably due to the underlying paint color/sheen I vote for one more coat on the trim.

Dave, when you say "trimming", do you mean the cut in, where you painted the wall color with the brush? If so, it sounds like you might have "hatbanding", which usually occurs with certain colors like golds and greens. It's usually, in my experience, when I use Ben Moore products. The texture of the brush versus the rolled sections reflects light differently, and is highlighted in certain colors. Chat rooms are filled with tips for combatting hatbanding, but there is nothing. You could dutch roll, horizontal, up as close to the ceiling as you can. That's crazy and could turn an eggshell or satin wall into a mess worse than the hatband. Since I can't beat it, I join it. I just roll normally up as close as possible, without hitting the ceiling, and keep that line even at the top and bottom and in the corners. It's worse if your stop line is zig-zag. And, you did the best you could to reduce the unsightliness of the condition. PM me if you would like some tips on keeping the line close and even without hitting the ceiling. I have a pretty neat trick.
