My ceiling is a knock-down texture, and walls are orange peel texture. I'm repainting the walls (different color than ceiling). Having great difficulty getting a clean line between the ceiling and wall due to the texture - taping doesn't work, nor do the typical aids like metal straight edges and the pad edgers with wheels. Hand is not steady enough for freehand painting. Anyone solved this problem?

Some people put up crown molding because of this,I have in the past used a putty knife to jam the tape tight so it protects the ceiling better but it is a hit and miss dependingh on how your texture is laid out.
