Painting over dark patches on coving

Postby Farmersden » Thu Feb 21, 2008 2:59 pm

Can anyone help me.......I am trying to paint coving with white matt emulsion which is not covering dark patches left by some plastering work that was done, is there a better paint to use or should I try sanding it, any tips greatly appreciated.
