I'm trying to paint the trim inside the house. The molding is 2-4 inches. It is hard for me to apply(muscle problem),even when I tapeIseem to get it everywhere.What's the easiest way to paint trim? Is there a sprayer just for trim?

Try a paint shield.....and wipe it clean often........use a good brush.......don't try and hold the paint can and paint too.....just focus on the trim

A large drywall knife makes a nice paint shield. One important thing to remember is to never slide your shield, it will make a mess.
I have seen alot of people painting trim with little 1" brushes. If you use a larger (say 3") brush it will be less work and your brush will not be in the same area as long. Meaning less chances for a mess.
