How to cut in and get clean edges without using tape:

  • Use an angled brush.
  • Dip your brush in the paint about a half-inch in.
  • Wipe off excess paint from the side of the brush that will go against the wall.
  • Place your brush on the wall slightly away from the edge and taper in to get a clean line.
  • You can also use a paint shield to help you get a straight line. The clean side of the shield is held against the ceiling or area needing protection. Remember to clean the paint edge between every few strokes.
