Help! Painted vinyl silk on plastered ceiling!


Postby Shushi » Fri Mar 20, 2009 12:52 am

Hi I have just had my whole kitchen re-plastered and I foolishly painted vinyl silk b&q White paint on the ceiling as recommended to do so by a colleague! After Reading various posts about doing mid washes and White washes with matt paint I am now really worried! I have done 2 coats of vinyl silk straight onto the ceiling and there are some patchy parts of the ceiling showing! Please can anyone advise me urgently!!! Thanks!

Shushi,
Just leave it for a few weeks and see if the patches disappear.

Did you put a layer of new plaster paint underneath that vinyl silk?? if yes you should not have this patches , however if they keep coming up, paint it with undercoat give it time to dry and repaint over it with silk again

Its patchy for one of two reasons:

1. The plaster wasn't properly dried out before you painted it. It doesn't dry evenly so some paint on dry stuff and some on not so dry - hence patchy. How long after the plasterer had finished did you leave it before painting? Was it just a skim?

2. You don't have an even layer of paint over the whole ceiling. Because you used the paint neat then it went on too thickly making it difficult to get an even coat.

Silk finish doesn't stick too well to new plaster anyway so a coat of oil based undercoat won't solve any potential adhesion problems that you may have had because the substrate was still wet/damp or paint was too thickly applied.

Paint For New Plaster as a retail product is marketing hype. A mist coat of matt emulsion (though NOT rich matt) would have been fine first.

SBs suggestion has some merit as if it is a plaster issue the patches may disappear as the plaster completely dries.

If it were me (which it isn't and so not my decision) I'd scrape the whole lot off before it cures fully (about 30 days), mist coat with supermatt or vinyl matt, second (but still diluted) coat of matt then on with the silk.

rosebery, i've noticed that you advise quite strongly against the use of rich matt (dulux rich matt i assume) for the mist coat. just curious as to why that particular paint is unsuitable?
