Poor Flow & Leveling
Failure of paint to dry to a smooth film, resulting in unsightly brush and roller marks after the paint dries.
- Use of low-quality paint
- Use of low-quality tools/wrong roller cover
- Re-brushing or re-rolling areas that are partially dried
- Too much heat – usually above 90 ºF – or too little humidity, which causes rapid drying of the paint, preventing the film from flowing out properly
- Use of paint not specifically made with good flow and leveling properties
- When using a roller, be sure to use a cover with the correct nap length for the type of paint being used. Use of a high-quality brush is important – a poor brush can result in brush marks and uneven appearance.
- Avoid painting under conditions that cause rapid drying of the paint.
- Use a high-quality paint formulated with ingredients that enhance flow and leveling.
