Never painted before. I've decided to paint my studio, which is a 770 sq rectangular space.
I'm going to need to paint the ceiling as well as the walls. I am planning to follow John Burbidge instructional videos on youtube. I'm going to paint the ceiling first then the walls. I'm going to use a roller for the majority of the work. I have several questions:
When painting the walls do I "cut-in" just the areas I'm going to paint or do I cut-in all the walls?
if I were going to paint the right side of my studio on Friday night and the left side on Saturday would I still cut-in the all the corners and edges? Or just the ones connected to the wall I'm planning to paint that day?
what if I were going to take 3 a hour break between painting the right side and the left side?
As you can see, I'm trying to figure out when I should cut-in the entire room as oppose to cut-in only part of it.
Could you also explain how the "frame/border/halo" effect happens? This is where the cut-in area is a different shade? Is really because the "cut-in" area had dried before you painted the area?
