Brown batch immediately comes through first coat

Postby FlashJack » Mon Nov 02, 2020 5:37 pm


Started painting our kitchen, and one wall immediately showed a brown patch through the first coat.

We took the paint back to the plaster before painting, or at least i think it was the plaster. I've attached a photo to show what I mean?

Can anyone help with diagnosing and fixing the problem?

Thanks, Jack

Hi flashjack
Suggest you start by applying a stain block paint to the area and beyond, probably 2 coats.
