    Hey guys, I'm gonna get my carcass in gear and start my garage project. Included is a pic of the scheme I'd like to unltimately have. Big question is- how do I paint color to color without leaving a ridge? Do I string a line on the wall and paint up to it with one color with a brush and then do the same thing with the next color.....................
    Thanks

    I'd tape the line of demarcation and gently feather the paint down to the tape, going over it to get even coverage. You may have to feather down to the tape another time to avoid the ridge. When you're ready to do the next color tape a teeny bit over the first color you layed on. Make sure you give the first color plenty of time to set up before taping over it for the next coat. Also, when you're going to remove the tape (use the low tack painter's tape), get out a blow dryer and warm the tape as you remove it... it will help it come off easily and not pull the paint under it off, too.
