Hello! My name is Grady Johnson and I’m a
professional painter. And today I’m representing expertvillage.com. Now I want to talk a little
bit about cutting in an interior wall. Now, whenever you’re rolling you need to cut in
all of these edges first. Now this includes the baseboards and the sides of the door jambs.
Cut in every edge that you’re going to roll up to. That way every thing’s gonna cover.
Don’t try to do that with a roller. It leaves a texture that gets on wood that doesn’t look
good. It’s going to make it look like an alligator hide. So you want to be sure and cut every
thing in really, really well. So get yourself a full brush and pat that into your brush.
Cut yourself in a nice square line. Don’t get any up on the ceiling and you just run
your line. Now, the trick to this is to run a line just below the edge first and you get
a nice big bead. Then, run your line up there from that line. There we go. Then, just even
that on out. Now, if you miss it up don’t worry about it. You can always fix it later
and bring that on down a full brush width. You want to bring the corner down as well
and even that on out. Now you’re going to take and even out all those little marks you
made. When you went on, you made marks. So we’re going to take those off and that’s called
lapping off the paint. You can see, we worked the paint off to the ends of the brush and
then lay your brush out. Even that on out. Now, remember you can see that these hairs
are just below the line that we cut. Once you got that line cut, don’t get back up in
there. You won’t have a mistake and then just even it off. Now see, I made a mark when I
went on like that. So I’m going to take and lap that off and even on out. Then, I’m just
going to continue to cut my line on down in this manner. So I want to get the sides of
the door jamb and just go ahead and lap that up on there. You want to be sure and lap,
make sure that laps out so it doesn’t lap up on you and we’re bring up the rest of the
jamb. But this is basically every thing that I need to remember. This is how we cut in
the interior walls of our house.
