Hello

We have recently had work done and had all our walls freshly skimmed. I personally applied a mist coat and then painted it with a normal coat of white emulsion. We then decided to get a decorator in who in turn, hasnt done a fantastic job.

The corners look extremely patchy and very dark. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this issue? Do I need to do another coat of white to try and cover the patches, or should our final coat cover this?

Thanks in advance,

That's called picture framing, it's where it's been cut in.

The trick is to cut in a bit at a time and roller whilst still wet.

Another coat may remedy this now

Thank you for you reply.

This makes perfect sense. Do you recommend cutting in with our final coat then whilst wet, use the roller to go over?

I'm not a pro decorator (handyman) but I would roller over the edge as close to ceiling as I could and see what it looked like. If you cut in again you may have same issue.

You could just try 1 wall first using this method and see what happens.
