Problem with roller stippling
 
Hi. I started priming my walls yesterday with Kilz oil-base, and noticed the roller left obvious stippling behind, which will show through the finish coat. Besides sanding down the ridges and starting over, are there any suggestions on how to smooth out the surface for the finish coat?

Thanks in advance.

You could try a rag soaked in thinner if it is not dried too long.

Might use a thicker roller cover and put the paint on a bit heavier. Don't go overboard though. Not that there ever is, but this is definitely not the time to use a cheap box store paint. Go to a paint store and get paint with body to it.

stippling good :) ridges bad:furious:. a soft stipple from a roller is fine it helps hide imperfections. for smooth dry wall or plaster 3/8 nap cover i like purdy white doves sold at the big boxes and sherwin williams.now the ridges i'm not sure i know what you mean if its roller marks then that's application error and you have to sand them out .

You're pushing too hard on your roller.......let the roller do the work.......very light pressure......lay the paint on.....don't force it.

Thanks again Chris, I used thinner and the primer with stipples on the wall is coming right off. Before I paint with latex, is there any additional wall prep I need to do? Or just wait til the wall is dry and begin painting?

Thanks again.
