Any painters or decorators on here. Need some advise.

Just after some help with a bit of painting I’ve done that looks horrendous and I’m not sure why.

I used Dulux silk emulsion (2 coats) over a most coat and newly plastered walls.

The walls have loads of streaks in them and the paint finish isn’t smooth at all but is quite rough ?






Any ideas on what's happening here ?

I'm not an expert, just a DIYer with forty odd years of redecorating, but to me, the last shot in particular simply looks like the sort of finish often obtained when using a roller rather than a brush.

Possibly a combination of slightly thick paint and the type of roller used?

We had that when I did a base coat with a roller, I Just painted over it in the end and looks poor. Best thing to do is to sand it down, and use a brush.

I do property maintenance and a fair bit of painting, it does look like the pile on the roller is quite long/thick and that would give you that type of effect.

As for the lines, I think as good as any plasterer is you will always get a few uneven areas which really get highlighted by a silk paint.

As others have suggested, I would give it a light sand to get rid of the pile marks, try a short pile roller, works best on a smooth finish wall, as opposed to a texture wall covering like woodchip/anaglypta paper.

Also if you’re choosing to use a silk for easy cleaning, you can use a durable matt emulsion, it would be less shiny and not highlight some of the marks your seeing.

Hope it makes sense and is of use to you

Thanks for the info.

I used a proper short pile roller from Screwfix. Think it was a Harris roller.

If I sand that over will Matt emulsion go over it ok ?

i'd certainly go over with matt, silk isn't the most flattering especially in hallway situations cuz the light source is at the ends which highlights any difference in the surface, you could get a pole sander to make sanding easier

You won’t have any problems going over the silk with a matt especially as you’re going to sand it first.

I’ve never used a Harris roller, but their brushes aren’t too bad so maybe after a sand and a matt finish you might not notice the pile on the paint.

Good luck

On a general decorating note I find it easier to do the glossing first as the emulsion will wipe off the gloss but I find it very difficult to get gloss off emulsion if I stray over the line.

Close up it looks like you've not rolled it out enough.

The new plaster has sucked the moisture out of the paint(dried too quickly)

You should have sanded down after the mist coat and touched up the bare patches.

Sand it all down and try 2 coats of Matt (Dulux Diamond Matt) thinned slightly with water

Let the cutting in dry before rolling.
