    Brush or thick longer nap roller They need to come back & finish the job doesn't sound like they are professional at all just paid painters.

    I would definitely call back the people you paid. It sounds like they did not do a proper job.

    Use a wedge-shaped sponge brush to apply in the cracks, but I would call the contractor and have them fix it up for you. You paid for it to be done right.

    I would have used a small brush first on the grooves and then painted the rest. Shoddy workmanship on their part.

    You need to contact the painting contractor that you paid for this project and have them come make it right. They should have brushed in the grooves and then sprayed.

    You should have painted the wall a slightly darker color first, nothing to see.
