Painting Newly Skimmed Ceiling and Patches Looking Like They've Been Missed?

Postby cah1234 » Mon Oct 07, 2019 5:19 pm

Hi All,

I recently had my living room ceiling skimmed and left two weeks before completely dry. I then gave a mist coat using a cheap B&Q paint before adding two non watered down coats with the same paint. I then used Dulux Easycare and gave one coat. I noticed that from certain angles it looked as thought id missed bit, although i hadn't but that's the only way of explaining how it looked. I then gave another coat using the easycare and left overnight, same problem. I went to a Dulux trade centre and explained the issue and was advised it was the paint and was told one coat of Dulux Vinyl Matt would fix the issue due to the opacity. I gave one coat and still the same issue. Have give a 2nd coat and will have to see in the morning but i'm not hopeful. Does anyone know why and how i can fix this? Thank you in advance.
