Hi, I could really use some urgent advise, I have run into a disastrous situation with putting matt paint over silk paint in my kitchen, the finish has crazed all over the place and looks terrible. What makes this so urgent is this is for a rented house that I am moving out of at the weekend, I painted it with a crown red silk paint when I first moved in and have to paint it back to magnolia so I can get my deposit back. So far I've painted about 4 coats of B&Q trade matt emulation and it just seems to be getting worse, it was only then that I thought ... hang on sometimes defiantly not right here!! So I trawled the internet and found out what a big no no it is. I've read through the forums here and got some really good tips but because of the time constraints in place (and a lot of packing still to do) I am limited in what I can do so there are still some questions I would greatly appreciate if someone could help with. Last night I rub down a relatively small area of a large kitchen wall practically back to the plaster and repainted it, this morning it seemed a little better but not by a great deal and it would take a miracle to get the whole thing rubbed down and repainted over the next 2 evenings. Is there anything I can put on top of my 4 layers of matt emulation with out having to rub it down first that would solve the problem? I am considering the following options - buying a tin of satin\sheen type paint and putting this over the matt thats up there in the hope for a better finish. - putting a layer of PVA over the walls and then painting on top of that - buying a tin of undercoating type paint like 'polycell basecoat 5in1', this to me seems like the best option as from the read up it will cover up the cracks Has anyone tried any or all 3 of these before, I don't expect to get the finish perfect now but better than what it is currently is a must. Any advice here is greatly appreciated thanks.
