I have just had a very difficult day with this paint. I was to do a bathroom, kitchen and hall. I started in the bathroom and it went on ok to a small area although it was rather thick. When i got to a bigger area with a roller it started to lìft the paint that I'd just put on and no matter how I tried I was left with a mess. Will have to go back and sand down first but i don't know what to put on top. I then tried it on a bit of the hall. It went on fine, a bit thicker than normal emulsion. So i tried the kitchen and i ended up in the same mess as the bathroom. Common factor i think is that the kitchen and bathroom must have been painted with kitchen an bathroom paint- it looked matt to me and the hall was definitely matt. Anyone had similar problems?

Be handy to know what prep you've done.

Making sure your roller is fully loaded helps, also thin your paint by 10% and see if that helps.

Sanding down durable matts isn't much fun.

Thin down slightly as Des says, and also it's often better to cut in the whole room, then roll over once the cutting in has dried. Diamond Matt is prone to lifting on the first coat if the substrate is too porous and the paint is full strength. Second coat isn't so bad, as i's not absorbing in so quiclky.
