Here is some more painting tips using the pre-cut method cutting-in a ceiling line. Often regardless of the paint used — I will make two passes on a ceiling line when cutting-in and a final feathering-off pass. This allows me to move a large amount of paint across a 6 or 7’ span during the 1st pass and realign the brush for the second pass. This is the method I use to cut 11 to 14’ per minute although I do it with a 7/8” x 3” flat brush.
I will discuss the mechanics behind the precut method in more detail in the weeks ahead because there is so much more happening in this video that meets the eye. Also, I will show an alternative two pass method for cutting-in ceiling lines that’s more efficient than the one in the painting video below.
Note: The angle of the video camera somewhat makes the width of cut look less than it was.
In this short video I show what my brush often looks like when cutting-in and painting pretty much anything.
I load the inside of the brush with the amount of paint I need and wipe most of the paint off the outer portion of the brush because I only paint with the bottom edge of the brush, not the side of it and I do not want any paint on the side of my brush interfering with a clean cut.
