OK I'm having problems with flashing on a long open plan wall as it is often viewed at an acute angle and is in direct sunlight.

I'm no pro but I don't think it's my technique, I think the paint is drying way too fast. It almost looks dry after going back to load the roller!

So I have looked into adding floetrol or xim but a few things I wanted to know;

Will either of these affect the colour of the paint? Was hoping to not have to cut in again so would need to match the current colour exactly.

Will adding another coat (or 2) over the current 'flashed' finish sort the problem, or will I need to do a lot of sanding first?

Finally, which of those products would be better for me?

Thanks

You shouldn't really need a paint conditioner. If it's drying out too quickly, leave it until later in the day when it's cooler, thin your paint slightly and re roll.

Make sure you get plenty of paint on your roller and don't overwork it. As long as you haven't got tram lines or slide marks, your paint will flatten down nicely.

What paint are you using btw?

Yeah, just thin with clean water. Have you been using neat?

Yes using neat. I've always done that but usually use Johnstones and haven't noticed the problem.
