    Oh no! Used vinyl silk as a mis coat 11th Mar 18 at 7:43 AM
    Help! I’ve used vinyl silk as a mist coat on our newly plastered walls and ceiling of a large living room !!!128563;. I did start with a matt but ran out and grabbed the next bucket of paint to use it up and didn’t notice until we were finished that it was silk so some of the walls and ceilings are a mixture.

    We’ve already bought the matt paint we were going to finish with and need to do the top coats today before the floors are being laid tomorrow.

    Will it be okay to paint over with matt?

    Yes. If you are concerned, go over the vinyl coat with some sandpaper to give the new paint something to adhere to.
    Please excuse the lack of apostrophes where they should be while the forum and Apple sort out their stupid code that appears in place of apostrophes and inverted commas.
