Hi Guys, looking for a little bit of advice.

When i am cutting in using a brush, the bit i have cut in always looks darker than the rest of the wall (done using roller)

I believe this is called "flashing" ? (brother in law is P&D and i am sure thats what he called it)

It basically looks like the paint is darker around the bits i have cut in.

Any advice?

Cheers

Its called Framing & not flashing which is a different problem which is usually caused by not priming some fillers before painting so it flashes when light hits the filler.
To get over your problem you will have to sand back the edges around the walls,ceiling & skirting boards..Then cut in again but make sure you thin that part of the paint down then roll the walls again making sure your as close to the edges as possible..Do one wall at a time only.

agreed "picture framing"

I use a different technique to dubman2..

I cut in then drag the brush and paint down the wall (from ceilings) to feather in to the rollered line.

One way to stop picture framing is to cut in, say a metre at a time, and then roll over it with a lightly loaded mini roller as tight to the ceiling/skirting/frame as possible. This way you replicate the texture of the main rolled areas thus eliminating brush marks/framing.

Some brands and colours are more prone than others. Some Dulux deep base colours were bad for this.

Yes, reds especially can be problematic, also sometimes with darker colours if your roller is damp before you start it will cause shading to happen, best dry your roller thoroughly before starting.

I use Armstead Trade on the charity shop projects mixed to a dark blue RAL5002, a screaming pink RAL4010 and a green RAL6033.

They are the most lurid colours you ever saw, and in Armstead, they don't frame or misbehave at all. Armstead emulsion is very good if you're not looking to spend a fortune and want a paint that just works.

Leave that retail gash in B&Q if that's what you've been using. :thumbright:

some Reds can be very poor covering sometimes..Dulux came out with a colour called Crushed Berry.it's a nice colour but was difficult to use..I painted a customers dining room in it & it took 5 coats to get a good finish.
I'm a big fan of Armstead trade as well.I use it on nearly all my ceilings & there eggshell for bathrooms.

No thanks or anything from the original poster..He's getting free advice from professional decorators & he can't even say thanks.
