Rough finishes result from impurities introduced into the paint during application. A rough paint finish spoils the appearance of a painted surface (Image 1).
Fix: Use sandpaper to smoothen the area (Image 2). Clean down with a cloth to remove dust. Repaint the area with topcoat (Image 3).

3. WRINKLED PAINT

Wrinkles appear on painted surfaces from painting coats too quickly, and not allowing adequate drying time. It can also be caused by extremes of temperature while the paint is drying.
Fix: Strip paint completely using chemical stripper or a hot air gun (Image 2). Sand down the area and repaint (Image 3).

4. STAINS

Stains are caused by smoke damage, mildew, not properly scraping off old paint or not priming before painting.
Fix: Clean the area thoroughly with paint thinner and leave to dry completely (Image 1). Apply stain blocker or oil-based undercoat over the stain and allow to dry (Image 2). Recoat with spare topcoat (Image 3).

5. BRUSH MARKS

Sometimes, poor application of paint on a surface leaves streaks from strokes of the brush. Obvious brush marks in different directions can make paint finishes look uneven.
Fix: Sandpaper the area (Image 2). Wipe the area clean of dust with a damp cloth. Repaint the area (Image 3).
