Didn't dilute 1st top coat

by Joe.joe.joe123 » Thu Jan 12, 2023 1:57 am

Hi

My painter and decorator painted a mist coat (1:4) of Leyland contract matt to the walls and then painted on top 2 coats of Armstead Trade without watering down the 1st coat of the Armstead Trade paint. He also did the same sort of thing with the kitchen ceiling, he painted a mist coat 1:4 of Leyland contract matt to the kitchen ceiling and then painted 1 coat of Macpherson Durable Matt Acrylic but without without watering down that 1st coat of the Macpherson Durable Matt Acrylic.

Is my wall or ceiling paint going to flake/peel off? Before we do the 2nd coat of Durable Acrylic on the ceiling is there any remedial action that can be taken?

Thanks!

Hi joe.joe.loe123,
Doubtful you will have problems, try sticking a strip of tape on the wall and pull away vertical to the surface.
Regards S
