With the same color of eggshell paint from the same gallon, the cut-in area done by brush is lighter than the wall area done by roller. What can we do to remedy that? It really pronounces the areas close to ceiling and baseboard.
This usually happens more often to us with a flat finish than an eggshell. In my experience the following is a list of causes for this occurring.
# Low quality paint.
# Too much time elapsed between the cut-in and rolling.
# Cut-in after rolling.
# Not using a primer on new construction.
# If the walls were new, try applying a primer over the trouble paint and then paint the walls with two coats.
For the first concern, if the paint is a low cost paint, visit you local paint store and purchase a better quality paint.
