Cutting in help

Postby Leannew » Thu Oct 01, 2020 7:09 pm


I'm fairly new to decorating but just about getting the hang of freehand cutting in. The only thing I really struggle with is getting the really tight little 1cm or so bit in the corners of walls and ceilings. I use an angled brush for cutting in, but for these bits I've been using a slim artist type brush. What does everyone else do please? Any tips or videos to share?

Hi leannew
I find a good quality 1.5" Brush works well.
By good quality I am referring to one with a thick stock so that once loaded a long length of cutting in can be done.
