Paint Coverage


I recently made some drywall repairs or patched a few holes and applied "one" coat of BEHR Premium Plus "satin" finish paint. I noticed that you can actually see where I applied joint compound through the paint. Can someone tell me if I apply another coat will this clear up the imperfection?

Or should I apply possibly (KILZ) stain blocker first?

Paint Coverage


That's not surprising
You don't mention what type of repair you did, but most types of repairs require a coat of primer first, then two coats premium paint will usually cover it
-if- the repair is smooth...Paint colors, it doesn't fill

If it's not smooth, it may need a skim coat of joint compound over it
Then sand smooth, then primer, then two coats paint

If it's smooth now, you might want to consider a coat of primer, even though it has a coat of Behr on it already

Behr can take 3 - 5 coats to look good under the best of circumstances, I wouldn't bet that two more coats over un-primered would look OK

It doesn't have to be Original Kilz (oil-based) unless it's a deep/dark stain
Then it wouldn't be a bad idea

The latex Kilz (Kilz2 etc.) isn't very good, I'd recommend a Zinsser product if at all possible (BullsEye 1-2-3)...or Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams latex primer

It will be hard to touch up with the satin paint. Probably need to repaint the whole wall.
