Help! Satin oil based looks like semi gloss
William on Jun 28, 2016Poor Sheen Uniformity Also known as ‘flashing’, poor sheen uniformity can be identified as shiny or dull spots on a painted surface that lead to an uneven gloss. Possible causes of flashing: Uneven spread rate whilst painting Failing to properly prime a porous surface Poor paint application that results in lapping. How to fix it: New substrates should always be primed and sealed before applying the top coat to ensure a uniformly porous surface. Without the use of a primer or sealer, it’s likely you’ll need an extra coat of paint to do the job. Make sure you always apply paint from 'wet to dry' to prevent lapping. Often, applying an additional coat will even out any sheen irregularities.Helpful Reply

Nan8294950 on Jul 11, 2016Take a deep breath. They look great and will be easier to clean. BUT if you can't stand it - HD/Lowes - sell a liquid sander. Wipe it on - can even use steel wool or a fine grit sand paper to take the sheen off. BUT I repeat - it's a kitchen - gloss is easier to clean than a mat finish.Helpful Reply
Kim Humber on Jul 11, 2016Turn the heater on and if you have a dehumidifier turn it on too. Wait a few more days before you do anything. It is very likely that you got the paint on in different film thicknesses and it is drying at different rates. Oil paint can take days to dry in high humidity.Helpful Reply
