Painting Emulsion over Satinwood Paint on Wall

Postby Fairford » Tue Feb 23, 2016 3:53 pm


I used water based satinwood paint to touch up a wall rather than emulsion. Can I just paint over the satinwood with emulsion or do I need some sort of sealer first?

Just clean down the wall with some Grime Go to make sure there are no fingerprints etc on the wall (they contain grease) ... ottle.html

Then rub over very gently with some fine sand paper.

Then apply the emulsion
