Having trouble getting the perfect cut line on your textured ceiling?
I’ll be revealing a pro painter trick that’s great for painting a perfect cut line! Especially where there is a color transition from a textured ceiling to the walls.
All you need to get started before the painting process begins is some blue painters tape, tube of white paintable caulk and a damp yellow grout sponge or rag. I recommend doing two coats of paint on both the ceiling and walls.
Here’s the video showing this pro painters perfect cut in technique on a textured ceiling through the eyes of my GoPro camera:

Here’s the Tools you will need:
In this how to paint a perfect cut in line video, I’m cutting in the ceiling with a 3 inch paint brush and rolling it out with a three-quarter inch nap roller. I used a primer called Zinsser 123 which is what I always use to prime newly drywalled and textured areas. I had already removed the popcorn ceiling texture, repaired all of the ceilings tape joints. Next, I applied a skip trowel texture to the ceiling and an orange peel texture to the walls.Lastly Primed and painted all of this bedroom’s walls and ceiling.
I recommend doing a primer coat. Then two coats of paint on both the ceiling and walls.
Good luck with your textured ceiling or wall project! -Paul
