Need tecnique advice
Recently I used Benjamin Moore Advanced on a door and a mirror frame. The mirror frame turned out great; the finish looks like it was sprayed it's so smooth. Unfortunately, not so for the door. The pocket door couldn't be removed and lain flat, so I painted it in the upright position. Boy, has it been challenging to get a good quality finish. I used a brush to lay the paint on, and then per the BM advice, used a foam roller to roll it out. But the foam roller left bubbles in the paint, and I had to rebrush those areas. This left bubbles in some place, and streaks in others, and overall I think I worked the paint too much.
Can some give me technique advice to get a better finish? I'm willing to sand what I've applied so far and give it another coat, but I want to know how to get the same even smooth finish that I got with the paintbrush and mirror frame.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
