    Recently had my Bathroom ceiling re-plastered for a new suite and tiles etc.

    Used a 75% vinyl emulsion/25% water sealing mix. But in one small area it will not adhere/soak into the new plaster.

    Would it be best to sandpaper the area and use an undercoat to seal the area, then re-emulsion when dry.

    Or what other advice would you give ??

    Sounds like it might be PVA splashes?

    Thanks,

    Can I use an oil based primer/undercoat over this, if not.

    How can I sort the problem if a primer/undercoat is not the answer.

    Sandpaper the bad area and re mist it.
    Was it vinyl Matt or silk? Silk is not good for a mist coat and although vinyl Matt will work I'd always advise misting with a contract Matt. What is the finished coat going to be? Bathroom paint?

    I might be wrong with the Emulsion, might not being Vinyl.

    The Emulsion is Dulux easycare bathroom. Which Dulux say it can be applied thinned to new plaster followed by 2 thick coats.

    It's decent paint. I'd always mist with thinned contract just because it's cheaper.
