I'm painting on new plastered walls and there seems to be from what I think water marks that show up when putting a base coat over it. Regardless of the number of coats I put on the stains don't go. What should I use ?
I have photos but I've tried resizing and compressing them and had no luck
Hi. I’ve experienced this myself. From what I remember I think I gave them a light rub with fine sandpaper. Also I have found that Leyland Super Latex paint is a fantastic first coat for new plaster. Hope this helps.
I’m no expert on paints. Both get good reviews on Screwfix. I would think the leytex gives it the edge on new plaster but plenty of people seem happy with the contract for this when watered down. I’ve only used the leytex and found it gave great coverage.
