    Oh no! Used vinyl silk as a mis coat 11th Mar 18 at 7:43 AM
    Help! Iíve 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 didnít notice until we were finished that it was silk so some of the walls and ceilings are a mixture.

    Weíve 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 forgive the deliberate omission of apostrophes on some posts whilst I await MSE to do something about the daft codes that appear in their place when typing on certain devices.
