    Painting onto bare plaster 9th Apr 18 at 5:24 PM
    Hello, Iíve had my walls plastered and applied a mist coat. I then needed to sand a few areas so did that but now there are small patches here and there where you can see the bare plaster. Do I need to touch these up with mist paint or can I move on to my first top coat?

    Thanks

    It probably wouldn!!!8217;t be the end of the world if you didn!!!8217;t but if you!!!8217;ve still got some of your mist coat mix just dab some on the spots and lay it off lightly to blend it in. It won!!!8217;t take long to dry.

    Just move onto the paint now. The wall will still have soaked some in even when you can see plaster.
