White Satin Paint


Postby Tracejovi » Mon Aug 04, 2008 4:10 pm

Hi,

I'm painting previously painted woodwork with B&Q Satin white for wood and metal. I've sanded, washed with sugar soap and applied undercoat. When I applied the satin (a week afer the undercoat) it's gone stripy and patchy. Where did I go wrong?

Thanks, Tracy

Was the under-coat the one specificallyrecommended for the satin? The problem sounds like the satin hasn't wetted the under-coat properly so they sound incompatible.

No ............. it was just undercoat!

I guess that's the problem then.

Thanks for your help.
