    Painting ceiling after water leak 18th Aug 06 at 2:06 PM
    I had a small water leak in my house as one of the upstairs heaters pipe's was not connected properly and water over time changed my ceil colour to a gone-off yellowish colour in the corner which is directly below the upstairs radiheater. I have had this repaired and thought that by painting the ceil white i'll be able to get rid of the mark.....but suprise suprise its still there. I have given it 2 coats of white paint and when i paint it, it seems to have gone but when the paint drys you can still see it....Any ideas on how to overcome this? Someone suggested use oil paint on it, will that make it worst?

    Please HELP!!!!!
