What do I do?? Wet paint drips running on new trim!!!

coconutlemongrassApril 6, 2013

We just installed new wood trim. It is mounted on the windows and has been primed. I just put my first coat of BM Impervo Water based paint on with my 2.5" Purdy brush and unfortunately I must have put it on too thick in some places. There are multiple spots where there are large drips running down the trim. It is just drying now and I decided not to touch it so that I wouldn't mess up the entire area. Is there anything I can do to fix the drips??? Should I have brushed them out after I saw them? Should I sand them once dry??? Thanks for any tips!

Depending on how thick the drip is, it may take several days to dry. I needs to be sanded. Use a sanding block.

Use less paint, look at your work as you go, and brush out the drips.

Thanks for the feedback. My other windows have gone far better, so I'll just have to go back and sand my first window. With the second and final coat of trim paint, is it necessary to cut all the way in again?
