    Supermatt over vinyl matt

    Hello, a couple of months ago I repainted my walls and ceilings using Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt watered down by about 15%. I love how it looks on the walls but the ceilings look terrible, extremely patchy. Can I paint supermatt over vinyl matt or does this require special preparation? thanks

    Repairing paint after efflorescence

    The chimney breast in my kitchen has efflorescence and bubbling paint in the lower quarter. This is because the open/uncapped flue was un-vented at the bottom which meant sitting moisture. I have since installed a 9" hit and miss vent to promote ventilation from bottom to top. Does anybody...

    Didn't water down Supermatt before painting plaster...

    I painted Dulux Supermatt onto dry plaster without watering it down (stupidly not reading the instructions I just used it like I usually use paint). I now realise - too late - that I should have watered it down (just from actually reading the instructions). I did the first coat yesterday and...
