Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I’m painting my exterior siding with a dark color. I’m spraying it and you can see overlapping marks. How do I get I’d of them?

You will need to respray the effected areas or sides. This time either choose a cool time of the day, not in direct sunlight, or add some water or Flotrol or both to slow down the drying a bit and help the paint blend without any flashing. Note: Dark colors and some manufactures paint almost always have this challenge.

You need to use 2 coats of a deep base primer sealer since the old color will keep bleeding no matter how many coats applied. Paints and paints with primer are not sealants. Seal the old color in. Use Benjamin Moore Paint. No paint from the big box chain stores, low if any resin to adhere. Not a big fan of spraying it either.
