I've never painted using this method before:

I've often thought of rolling out like in the video linked to - and now that I've got weeks of painting to do I'd like to roll as above.

Is this method used successfully here in the UK? That is, paint the perimeters of the walls first with a brush and mini roller (want to avoid brush strokes as much as possible).
Then roll out separately. I don't want any (flashing? banding? grinning?) whatever the term is to describe a noticeable difference in paint where the perimeters are painted separate to rolling.

Cheers,

Martin.

The term is "picture framing". Some colours are more prone than others.

There are quite a lot of so called "decorators" on U tube, that is one of the better vids I've seen recently...

Cut in the edges first (brush ) then roller on first coat, have to move quick though as you must keep a wet edge.

Leave everything to dry before second coat. sometimes a little feathering in around the edges will help avoid the "picture framing" effect.

Tbh I have all ways cut in first, then done the bulk of the fill, doing it that way means your not working around large areas of wet paint

As your cutting in, feather out the edges then you don't end up with a hard line or heavy framing


Just a diyer - Probably doing it wrong, putting the paint on upside down


edit. beat me to it :withstupid:

Thanks wine~o about the picture framing term - learned something there. I'll remember to keep a wet edge.

Thanks also Bob225 for posting about cutting in - much appreciated!

Cheers - Martin.

That seems to be pretty much the method I use. I cut in with a brush and a mini roller where needed, trying to get the edge as thin as possible. I then let it dry as I am too slow to work a wet edge. I follow up with the roller getting as close to the edges as possible, again using the mini roller if needed. I don't do the feathering he does though I might give that a go next time as I can sometimes get things a bit thick at the transition.

Tbh the feathering started out as a mistake - I overloaded the brush once and was 10ft up a ladder, so "feathered" out section is had just cut in

And that's what I'll be doing. :-)
