Poor Sheen Uniformity
Shiny spots or dull spots (also known as “flashing”) on a painted surface; uneven gloss.
- Applying paint unevenly
- Failure to prime a porous surface, or a surface with varying degrees of porosity
- Over-thinning of the paint
- Poor application resulting in lapping
- Use of low-quality paint
- New surfaces should be primed/sealed before applying the topcoat to ensure a uniform surface.
- Often another coat of paint will even out the sheen irregularities. Make sure to apply paint from “wet to dry” to prevent lapping.
- Use a high-quality water-based enamel paint.
