I have two things to correct on newly painted walls:
I have some recent scuff marks that will not wash off. How do I correct them?
I also have small sections of walls that need a second coat. Can you offer some suggestions? Someone once told me that the solution is to lightly touch up with a brush and “feather” the paint out from the spot. After paying a professional painter to redo my walls I do not want to damage the work that was done. Thx.
Who ever that someone was they got it right. For the sections that need another coat you will need to use the same application method, example- use a paint roller. This will minimize any flashing that could happen. If the sections are very large plan on painting from corner to corner.
If the scuff marks return after touch-up then you will need a stain blocking primer. There some in spray cans that do work, both Kilz and Zinsser Cover Stain are great for this type of job.
