Another week of paint pins! Woohooo!
Kidding – I don’t expect anyone to be this excited :)
So THIS PIN suggests trimming the edge of the roller to avoid that tendency for rollers to leave a goupy line on the wall that you have to spread out. Seems reasonable right?
So I trimmed my roller on both ends with regular scissors. Do it over the trash as the loose fuzz can fly away easy. Then I painted as usual. This is what I got.
Yeah that’s right the line still showed up. Now in fairness it wasn’t as often and really only when the roller was full of paint or I pressed a bit harder, but it still showed up.
Bottom line – not worth it
It really didn’t have enough of an effect to make me want to do it again. It was just another step added before getting to paint. On the other hand if you do enough painting that you wash and reuse high quality rollers, it might help to cut of that same area if there is some crusty paint that won’t come off. And that’s pretty much all I have to say about it :)
More to come on Thursday!
