Pretty much everything around here is textured. This one was a knock down
I sprayed primer

Soon as walls are dry, I run paper at the top of the wall. Went with 18" on this one

After masking and sealing tape, I spray final coat on ceilings. A little overspray past paper doesn't matter cause I cut and roll final coat on walls after I finish trim pack. I'm just looking for coverage and a straight line at the top of walls.

Then after I finish trim I will cut and roll final coat on walls. Already have a nice crisp line so cut in goes fast

Your quite welcome. Did that when I was pretty tired
And from my phone. Had way more better pics, but just replaced my phone. The good ones aren't on this one. I posted this system on Facebook recently and had a few replies and questions too. It all depends on the job. I don't do much new work these days. 95% res repaints and not always painting ceilings, so normally I'm just cutting in by hand the old fashioned way

Exterior here where I did the same thing. Masked it off, since soffits went trim color. Was out there today doing t/u. Feels like I been on it forever. Framers did the siding. Took em forever. They finished right in time for the rainy season and I'm in the Pacific Northwest where we tend to get just a tad bit of rain. Been working on it whenever I get a dry day. One more day and I should be done

Still enjoy cutting in with a brush too though. See how happy I look My 10 year old son took the photos. Brushing back cut in on some frames I brushed out. Another painter did the walls originally, but was fired

Default Frog Tape

Of late, I've had GREAT success with the Yellow Frog Tape and yes, it's NOT cheap! But the amount of aggravation and time saved is remarkable. I used to freehand cut corners as #thecuttingedge suggested. I used to tape/clear caulk as others suggested and also did the painter's tape, paint edge of tape to seal the edge, let dry and paint new color over painted taped line. It works but is time consuming.
Now for most flat surfaces it's Yellow Frog Tape! It has light adhesion and very rarely gives me trouble - and makes stunning lines. For texture, I would lightly score the corner, caulk a heavier bead, press the lead edge of the Yellow Frog Tape into that bead and paint.

This same company offers a tape designed for texture, I haven't tried it but here's the link: http://frogtape.com/products/frogtape-textured-surface see video. Any feedback on this product?

All very interesting. And I really like the pictures, you did a great job woodland!

I agree on the frog tape, but it isn't a catch-all, since nothing in this world is. But good for 90% of the jobs. I moved our crew on it years ago and works great.
