THERE'S nothing more annoying than a wobbly hand when you're trying to cut in and paint neat, straight lines.
But one painter and decorator has shared her clever, easy trick to help you achieve a perfect finish every time – and it's all to do with your speed.
Joanne Hay, who often shares decorating advice on her TikTok page @joannehaydecorating, posted a short video captioned: "On this occasion, quicker is better."
In the clip, she demonstrates how to perfectly cut in and explains: "A little secret about cutting in – the slower you go the harder you actually make it for yourself."
"That's because the human body is made up of millions of cells that are constantly vibrating."
"That's one of the reasons you can never hold your hand completely still."

Joanne adds: "The trick is, by going a little bit quicker, you're going to get a smoother, straighter line because you haven't got that vibration."
