dries under certain light conditions What im showing you is the correct way to get the perfect wall finish every time This paint is interior Low Sheen Acrylic You should cut in the wall first, before rolling
it that is the best way to do it This is a ten inch roller you can use a eight, ten or twelve inch roller The ten inch roller is the best one for most
people When you roll an exterior corner with a twelve
inch roller there is sometimes a slight curve towards

  1. thanks man .i just started working for a painting company.im still having a hard time rolling lines of paint keep apearing when i roll

  2. no problem, you will get some lines no matter what you do, but "laying it off" will make them small and when the paint levels during drying you wont see them. Dont bother looking at half dry walls because they always look like shit.

  3. Thanks man ! Good technique. I appreciate the tip about the larger rollers. The company I work for uses them though this is on new construction. No problems so far. Now I'll think on those side jobs to use the smaller roller. Good vid.
