Van asked 9 years ago

I’ve recently tried to paint my bathroom with a very bright color. I used 2 coats of paint and yet the result was an uneven tone, some parts of the painted wall are darker than the others. How do I fix this problem? I did use a white primer before applying the paint.

There is a few things you could be seeing here,

1. Lighting can and will effect colors in the wall through what is called Matamberization, forget how to spell at the moment, but this is the effect light has on paint from different angles.

2. Did you paint it all at once, I mean no stopping mid way in the wall for a break? With gloss paints you will get what we call flash marks that will show where you started and stopped on the wall and one will look darker then the other.

3. Did you prime the whole wall behind your top coat? Some times with some primers you have to coat the whole wall to get full coverage.
