    Painters & Decorators

    Does faux finish paint need a protective coating? Will this prevent damage?

    "Not a protective coating just a satin base coat ..unless there are water stains ect on wall ..
    Then that would need a stain stop like binz .."

    "Absolutely if you want to go the extra mile to protect it.

    However it could also creat a nicer effect with a clear sealer over it 🙂🤔

    although depending on the style and type of paint used it could be self sealing, I recommend doing a scratch test and think about where it's located, will it be experience alot of friction?(e.g. behind a coat rack or behind a couch)."
