I’ve had a fitted wardrobe built out of MDF and now I’m painting it myself, but the problem is... I’m a doughnut. I put a layer of undercoat on, and now realise I should have sealed the edges and put a primer on first.

What should I do now- use primer over the undercoat, or just do another layer of undercoat (or two)?

And should I buy special MDF paint?

Thank you.

Was it a primer/under coat product or just undercoat and was it oil or water based?

Sorry I’ve just checked the first tin again and it says Acrylic Primer Undercoat- from Leyland. I used some, ran out, and then used Crown ‘quick dry primer undercoat’. I’m a bit confused about the difference between them - maybe l I’ve used a hybrid? I read a few guides to painting MDF which said to do primer, then undercoat?

Leyland Acrylic is fine.
