    Hello, right I have an old post about painting flashing in the daylight. I tried a few diffemrt paints from cheap to expensive. Whatever I did I could get rid. I thought I was lapping but it seems where flashing is, it’s like clusters of pimples. It’s fresh plaster on board. I can’t sand all the pimples out. Will using a long nap get in and even this out? It’s so annoying

    How big are the patches? Has PVA touched the plaster?

    PICTURES will get a better response.

    Will take a photo later,
    No PVA as far as I’m aware.

    Not massive areas.

    Would it have anything to do with the back doors not being on? So there’s a wide opening

    Here is a photo.
    What you may think are raised bumps, they are not.... they are little dimples
