We are newbies to house renovation/decoration and have been having fun doing it ourselves in our first new home, however, there have been a few mishaps along the way as we learn how to do things.
We have 2 issues:
- Black gloss bleed on brilliant white eggshell walls.
- FrogTape stripping off paint from around Dado rail.
We painted our walls with brilliant white eggshell, then we painted our dado rails gloss black but unfortunately the black gloss paint has bled through the FrogTape. What would be the best way to fix this up? Do we need to remove the black gloss that had bled with white spirit or some alternative method? We're happy to take our time to do it but unsure of the best way to go about it as I would imagine just painting over the bleed with the white eggshell wouldn't work?
The second problem is how to patch up the stripped off paint from around the Dado rail. I've read in a few places that sanding down, spackling, priming and repainting is a good option, but is spackling more for larger dents in the wall rather than stripped paint?
Thanks in advance for any help!!! Hope everyone had a festive holiday as much as they could during this time.
