Best Ways to Mist coat new plaster


Avoid Using Vinyl Paint as a Mist Coat

Mist coat is the first coat that is painted on the wall before putting on the top coat. The perfect ratio for mist coat is 60% paint and 40% water. The paint should not vinyl paint. As vinyl paint can be peeled off and we want the color to stay. Always check the paint type before applying them. The mist coat should be applied once and then put the top coat. The top coat can be applied twice for best results.
