How Do They Do It That Fast?

10secs

From zero to 7' in under 10 seconds. Taken from the clip on YouTube, the video shows cutting-in freehand against a stained casing in under 10 seconds with one load of paint on the brush. So how do they do that you ask?

First off it takes a steady hand but there are a number of things happening in this video that doesn't meet the eye so lets take a closer look at them.

1.) The wood edge of the casing is sanded smooth and varnished
2.) The 1st coat wall paint is sanded smooth next to the casing
3.) The flat wall paint used for 1st coat reduces drag when cutting over it.
4.) The 3" brush used is a precision brush that holds a ton of paint

Can you tape the side of a casing in under 10 secs?

Here is the video
