Darn... I thought I was all done
Recently finished painting an accent wall with Regal Select Matte a kinda dark color. I did 2 generous coats. Yesterday I noticed that squares of the sample swatches are showing through if seen at a certain angle with the light shining on it. I think its from the sheen differences. The color & coverage is totally fine head on. Damn....shoulda primed it. Never thought that I wouldn't get good coverage!!
The issue is only on the left side as seen on this picture. Maybe the right side has the same issue but the lighting is different and does not show anything.
So now what?
(1) Prime those spots now and do multiple coats on that side? (I could tint the primer a bit by mixing some paint in it for the first coat).
(2) Just go for a third coat on that side and cross fingers that I will fix the sheen issue?
I guess my biggest concern is how extra coats on one side will blend with the rest of the wall. I don't have enough paint to do the whole wall, nor do I want to. That makes me think that Option 2 is probably my best bet.
