    Hi All,

    I would like to paint over the paint in my kitchen. It's some sort of 'waterproof' kitchen paint that you can't seem to paint over easily (when I tried the paint just sort of separates into gloops/blobs!). I actually removed the existing paint from one of the walls with a heat gun - it all came off in a big sheet like it was a big sheet of plastic.

    I want to just paint on top of the rest of the walls. Anything I can use as an undercoat to avoid having to sand down or remove the paint?

    Thanks,

    J

    Which paint were you trying to apply over the existing paint?

    If the walls are very greasy (as suggested by footprints) then I would expect the paint to act in the way that you describe.
