hello folks, not posted here for a bit, good to be back.

ive just painted a ceiling in my bedroom, all nice and newly plastered.

i put a mist coat on and then 2 top coats

i used a hamiliton perfection 12" nedium pile roller in a cage & scuttle - normal thing...

paint was contract matt emulsion from screwfix, used before loads of times and always been fine, i went over it really carefully to avoid tramlines and ensure even coverage.

but the finish looks orange peely, a bit patchy and even chalky, its really noticeable the brighter it is outside.

so, whats happened and how do i recover it ?

any advice gratefully received, thanks

I am a paint snob. Is the Scroofix paint by appointment to Lizzy? No? That is why I use Crown trade.

On a more serious note, I have not got a clue what the paint you used is. But, a non-vinyl paint (contract matt) will feel chalky. A vinyl paint after the mist coat may have left you with a more solid/dense surface. As far as the orange peel goes, the paint may have been too thick, the weather is too warm and even warmer if the central heating was on so the paint dries too fast. Pushing the roller to get the last drop of paint of it will also result in (fine) orange peel. Uneven coverage is down to the operator (I have known me to do 3 coats because I miss too much).

Only a DIYer if it helps a little :-)

EDIT. I forgot the recovery bit. if the orange peel bothers you sanding is the answer (pole sander 120 grit paper). Use a better paint and if you suspect your paint dried too fast, use a vinyl paint maybe diluted with 10% water (thinner paint will not produce orange peel as long as you don't fuff around for ever but may produce less even coverage in one coat).
