The spray primer (white) is perfect for blocking water/smoke stains in smallish areas. much copied by polycell etc.. :)

For larger area's we thin down some solvent based undercoat with white spirit and coat over the stained area .. allow to dry thro. then one / two coats of emulsion overall.


Good luck
