    I have sanded a ceiling before painting and in some areas the plaster below in showing because of old paint.

    "Hi
    Thereโ€™s no need to mist coat the hole celling again
    Just touch up the area that is exposed
    The give it a final topcoat
    Then it will be grand ๐Ÿ‘"

    "Touch in the exposed areas with the paint straight from container then leave to dry mix water with a bit of paint and again go overexposed parts, should blend in when dried saving doing all of the ceiling again"

    "The exposed plaster requires a mist coat, followed by the first coat of emulsion and then final coat the whole ceiling. This will ensure it doesn't stand out."
