dry lining and painting


Postby Holywood » Wed Jan 02, 2008 6:01 pm

I'm thinking of drylining a back room, sanding and painting. Can anyone confirm please that I can still get this skimmed even after painting with emulsion if it doesn't look good enough?

Thanks for any help

Hi Holywood,
Yes you can skim over paint as long as you prime wall with PVA,
but if you dryline wall with tapered edged boards and apply tapes and compond correctly, sand down and prime wall for painting you should not have problem. You will need to fill joints out 2 or 3 times.
Good Luck
