While at a Christmas party last week, a friend asked why they have Shiney spots on their wall after they just painted.
After some further conversation, I found that several holes were repaired from Molley bolts that used to be on the wall. Although I did not see any pictures of the walls in question these shiny spots are the result of one or more of these problems.
– when the holes were repaired the repaired area was not sanded down enough
-after making the repairs to the holes the repair was not given a coat of primer before painting
-the use of a paintbrush to paint the repaired areas which can cause paint to give the paint a different sheen than using a roller.
-when clients have existing paint that was used it has often not been mixed enough prior to application.
-finally the age of the paint being used and when it was last painted affect touch-ups. Paint will fade, the paint will have a different sheen due to wear, and due to the usage of a way, there can be dirt or grime that will result in two different appearances from old to the new paint.
