Can you help me troubleshoot a chalk paint job?
I left a question a little bit ago but didn't get pics added. I saw all the lovely chalk paint posts. They say how no prep is needed. I don't remember any saying anything about bleed through until yesterday when I was almost finished with my project. I used DecoArt Americana Decor chalky paint and did the hidden test It looked good so continued. The only sign of any problem was on the top. I thought if the bleed through on the top of my chest didn't cover with several coats I would only have to sand the top to bare wood and start over on it only. After 4 coats bleed through is occurring on the whole piece. I haven't put the minwax polycrylic protective finish on yet. Do I need to sand the whole chest down a start over? The bleed through didn't start showing until the 4th coat had dried for over 24 hrs.
