    Please help - how do I get rid of these patches on the wall? 11th May 18 at 6:41 PM
    We had our living room freshly skimmed. My partner then applied modern emulsion which has a sheen to the bare plaster wall a large patch before we realised it was not the primer. We thought the main coat would cover but when we applied the main coat it showed a large shiny patch. We sanded back to bare plaster, primed and reapplied the main coat but you can clearly see defined lines from where we have done this. The finish is absolutely awful. Is there any way to rectify this? Should we get the wall re skimmed?
