Touching up paint on sprayed baseboard?

Hi All,

Over the weekend I sprayed and installed the baseboards in my wife's closet. I've filled the nail holes and caulked the gaps and now have a question about touch up paint.

Since I sprayed (HVLP) the baseboard, I'm wondering what the best way would be to apply the touch up paint so that the texture / finish matches. Obviously you wouldnt want to use a brush for this right? I'm thinking it would leave brush marks over the nail holes and smooth sprayed finish every where else. Right? I was thinking maybe a small foam roller or very very light nap wienie roller.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

That will work, have a sash brush ready for any mess ups.

I'd brush the entire baseboard maybe cheating a little towards the bottom. If you caulked the joints and where the base meets the wall - all that needs paint too. Using the right brush and thinning the paint slightly will go a long way towards minimizing brush marks.
