I painted a ceiling in my house yesterday. The previous finish was white matt but I wanted a satin finish on the ceiling.
I sanded the ceiling before hand with a drywall sander. It was the first time I had used it so I was admittedly a bit heavy handed in some places and stripped back the paint in some areas to the bare plaster. I then "spot primed" these areas and sanded them back.
I stupidly forgot to sand probably the most noticeable spot primed area on the whole ceiling before painting. I did it in the evening so I didn't notice it as there was no natural light. After applying 2 coats of the white satin paint you can really notice the brush marks.
You don't even see it if you stand anywhere in the room, its just when you are walking by or walking into it.... very annoying.
See here... the mark is right where the natural light hits the ceiling.
I don't think adding another coat of paint on top will fix this, could I possible just sand away the brush marks here and do 1 more coat of paint on the ceiling? that would mean this one patch on the ceiling will only have 1 coat of paint... would that stop it blending in to the rest of the ceiling?
Is sanding the whole thing back, washing and starting again the only way? :(
