After top coat, isolated flaws... Quick fix??


Use BM Muresco, Ultra Flat Ceiling finish, or at least Super Spec. Merry Christmas all!


PS
and if that offends you, get over it.

SW rep said it couldve been a bad batch so I tried a new batch with the third coat. They also mentioned using their Cashimere or all in one paint. I think Im going to switch to a different paint for the ceiling, any opinions for SW paint?
Pro Mar 200 in flat

Im guessing these are not Sherwin Williams paints? I wanted to stick with the Sw lineup, considering their cashmiere or paint primer in one for the ceilings.

Yes the Pro-Mar is a SW paint
Does not have to be a "ceiling paint" any flat paint will do the job.

As c daniels said, promar 200 is SW and cashmiere would be over kill for a ceiling

I tried the Pro Mar 200 flat. It applied nicely, but as it began to dry it looked worse than before. Thankfully after it fully cured it smoothed out and was an improvement! Is it perfect, no but I think I can live with it. Maybe the other rooms will come out better.

The other ceilings have drywall repairs and will first be spot primmed. How many coats of the top paint are normal?

2 ,TWO, always

it does not, never has and most likely never will
even with good eyes

Agree with cdaniels and chrisn, always two coats. One coat, even white over white on a ceiling, will not give the depth and uniformity of two. One will give a shadowy, uneven look.

On ceilings I always put the first coat i direction 2nd coat opposite direction. Ceilings can be difficult to get even cover this seems to help.

Of course that is personal preference but I like my ceilings as white as I can get 'em.

Me too but I have found when a lot of them dry they have a grey cast to them
