The previous three builds have all been fine with just a single coat and a rub down afterwards. Paper and paint have gone on easily after that.
I was hoping to get away with the usual two coats on the ceilings, especially as I am painting inside a box which is no fun at all. Here are the results of my efforts.
|second coat going on|
This is the second coat going on and it looks like a good coverage while it is still wet - you can see the thin band at the bottom which only has the first coat and it is quite a contrast to the second coat just applied above it.
Tips to pass on from this experience are:
- do your very best to paint as many surfaces as you can in their flat pack stage
- use a roller
- at least tip the house on its side for the ceilings if you must paint them after building (as I have done here)
