Going to paint bedroom ceiling and was wondering best way to paint next to wood corner cove molding? With all new things coming out, thought I'd ask the experts, since I haven't painted ceilings in a long time.

Get the widest scraper you can buy, then just shove it in the corner and paint against it. Do a foot and move down. Just did my entire house this way and it worked great.

Like MS2020 said, 3m blue tape. unroll it 3-4ft at a time, touch it to the molding every 6-12in, then press it in with a putty knife.just using your finger almost guarantees bleed thru on the edges.

Palleting the brush just right and hand control. Sweeping brush strokes.

Rkh; If you haven't got a steady hand, and you still want to do it yourself, you can trade inconvenience for expertise to some extent. First, watch YouTube videos about painting interior rooms. Some are excellent. Even after forty years of painting as part of remodeling work, I learned things that saved me time and made the job better. Regardless of what you learn, here are some things that will make the job better:

1. Spend however much time it takes doing careful prep. A good outcome often depends more on the prep than on the painting.
2. Use the best quality blue painting tape. It's more expensive that the cheap stuff, but it's enough better to be worth the extra cost.
3. Mask off the molding as precisely as possible. There's no other point at which it will be as easy to keep paint off of it, or get paint off of it.
4. As you trim next to the molding, stop and pull the blue tape off every few feet before the paint can dry. Clean the molding of any paint that's gotten on it where you've removed the tape.

It isn't easy to set your mind to the slow, tedious pace that extra care requires. What usually happens is that impatience and frustration make us decide to do the best fast job that we can and live with the results. But the job will be over in a few hours, even if it's the slowest you've ever painted a room. Whether you're proud of the results or embarrassed by them, you'll have them to look at for years.

Stan

Good tips Stan!

One I learned from Youtube, if it's a popcorn ceiling, run a 1/4" screwdriver around the perimeter, knocking the popcorn off in the corner or against the crown mold. makes a clean edge to paint to.

I always find that once it is masked off , use a very light coat to cover the area. A heavy brushful may bleed around the masking tape. Two light coats is better than a heavy coat. I always use "frog tape" which is advertised as not to bleed through. The 3M products mentioned work well.

I use a 12 inch drywall knife and paint brush to edge with. Move the knife and paint brush. Don't use painters tape.

I do like George does and free hand any dips and dives. Tape takes forever to apply, had enough taping in the body shop to last me a life time and half!

Lots of great comments. I would add whether free hand, tapped, or guarded, a really good quality brush is a must. Paul
