Dimply matt paint???


Can some one please help. I am new to this forum and desperately need help. I have had my hall walls replastered. They were left to dry sanded down and two coats of thin mist coat applied. I tried to paint them with paint brush but had flashing. Walls rubbed down again and now i have tried to use a roller!! I am now having a textured finish which is dimply stipply kind of thing - i am sure you will know what i am talking about!! Is my paint to thin/thick? I am using Dulux Endurance. I have used the Hamilton Vantage smooth and textured roller which i was told was good! Please help someone.

Plaster walls usually require at least 30 days to fully dry and cure. That could be the reason for the flashing.

I'm not familiar with Hamilton Vantage rollers.

A pic would help us help you better.

No clue what thin mist coat is.
Should have been rolled with a primer before painting with two coats of paint.

Hi joecaption and thanks for reply. The plasterer told me to put on 2 thin watered down coats of emulsion to seal the walls - i thought this was normal?

Almost any roller will give a stippled effect. The only way to get a really smooth finish would be to spray. The problem with that is if you ever need to touch up the paint it would also have to be sprayed or the repair would look horrible. I also have never heard of that brand roller cover. Might try a short nap like 3/8" micro fiber roller. There will still be some stipple but not much.

Most pro's that spray also go back and do what is called back roll. That is take an almost dry roller and roll the walls after they are sprayed. What this does is give it the stipple effect so they can be touched up later.

That rather sounds like the nap of the roller was too long.

You could really go a looooonnnnnnggggg ways toward getting better help from DIYchatroom with PICTURES. A pic is indeed worth a thousand words. We are all just taking a stab in the dark on how to approach your situation without pics to give us some idea.

P.S. Were the walls plastered or skim-coated with joint compound? There's a huge difference in how you approach dealing with these very different substrates.

I tried to take pic but it really wasn't showing up the problem but it looks like the skin of an orange. Going by what other threads are saying I think it is j u st what I can expect when using a roller. The walls were just skimmed with the pink plaster stuff is it gypsum can't remember the name of it. .My husband is saying I am fussing too much and it looks fine - just me wanting my walls to look good
