Runs

Problem - Run-down
Paint film seeping and runs immediately after application, resulting in an uneven finish.

Possible causes

  • The paint coat is too thick.
  • Painting in humid or cool conditions.
  • Paint has been over diluted.

Solution

If the paint film is still wet, immediately remove any excess paint with a brush or roller. If the paint is dry, sand the surface and repaint. Follow Tikkurila's recommendations on spread rate, temperature, and humidity during application and drying. Apply two coats rather than trying to achieve an even finish with only one coat. Use a suitable paint, roller and brush.
