    I have recently painted the new plastered walls in my home but unknown to me i should have rubbed the water splash marks from the wall first, (amazing how many people tell you after) now i am left with patches that wont cover with paint, i have rubbed these down now but every coat i add just leaves these almost bare patches, i am at my wits end and any help would be gratefully accepted!!!

    Thse sound like 'fatty deposits ' A result usually of overtrowling, or whatever bonding the plasterer used.. Traditional way is to thin with white spirit a little solvent based undercoat, dab onto the patches and feather out so not to make thick edges. allow to dry. Dont apply too heavy all we need here is a barrier between the bare plaster fat/ and the emulsion. ( you might ned to coat up the spots with emulsion twice before overcoating all again.



    good luck..

    Could be PVA where he's splashed it around when preparing to skim the adjacent wall; if so, it will cover eventually, you just need to let the intial coats dry thoroughly befeore overcoating.
