I've made a mess of painting a brand new interior door and I've got no idea how to put it right so I'd be grateful for advice.
The door is a 6 panel pre-primed and as it's taken a while for me to get round to painting it I gave it a good wash down to remove the grandkids' finger marks then re-primed it with B & Q Diall Wood primer/undercoat. It didn't look great so I gave it a coat of Wickes solvent based undercoat then a final coat of Wickes Trade solvent based Satinwood. The door's got a moulded wood grain effect to it so I tried really hard to spread all the the coats properly so the grain would show thru nicely and the first side looks brilliant (for an amateur!). The second side was going great until as I was finishing off I noticed a couple of paint drips half way up (I'd laid the door flat on my paste table to avoid runs). Well, like an idiot I tried to blend the drips in and dragged the paint so I put more paint on to try and spread it out and now it's dry I've got a patch of door where the paint is far too thick and the grain has disappeared. It looks horrible.
Please does anyone know how I can sort this? Would white spirit on a cloth shift it or make it worse? Is there a better way? I'm reluctant to use paint stripper as I think it would be too fierce and I think sanding it or using wire wool would just destroy the wood grain effect. I've never used Satinwood before and I'm scared of making it even worse so any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
