We have painted over textured wallpaper. Where we cut in and then rolled the rest of the wall, we can see where we cut in. How do we correct? Can we use a thicker roller over the entire area?

This happens with drastic color changes or cutting in with a poor quality brush or poor quality paint. I always cut in with a brush then go over with a mini roller to keep the same texture as the rolled walls. This will eliminate what is called picture framing, cutting in twice takes more time which cost more money. Take an extra minute and do it right the first time.
