I have decided to decorate the bedroom and have now gotten around to do the painting. I initially gave all four walls one coat of a light grey soft sheen paint which covered nicely. I then gave 3 walls a second coat of the same paint which covered all the odd patches nicely.
I figured I would use a darker color paint for the feature wall so I got a darker grey, still soft sheen but is a different brand. The wall just doesn't want to take at all. I am trying to cut in with a brush but unless I lather it on thick, the paint just comes back off when I try to brush it out.
Has this got anything to do with the different brands of paint or its being soft sheen? I have tried multiple brushes but it just seems to keep pulling away and I end up with patches. I used a 12-inch medium pile roller to do the main body of the wall which works great, but I can't go around the edges with a brush. Any idea why?
