    Default Metal corner beading showing through paint

    Hi guys

    encountered a bit of a problem with painting our walls and wondering if anyone had any advice.

    We've recently had the living room replastered and after the plaster dried and a watered down emulsion coat painted over, we've painted one wall with a dark grey emulsion. Unfortunately the metal corner beading is showing a pattern through in places and after three coats we're tearing our hair out!

    Any advice on how to stop the beading pattern showing would be gratefully received

    Thanks
    Jamie

    You have an air gap / void/ missing fill in that area. Use a light weight spackle like "Patch n Paint", let it dry and re-apply your finish. Your emulsion finish is going to suck any imperfections out of any drywall but this simple fill should solve it.

    Well, not to burst ur bubble, but metal corner bead and plaster are a thing of the past. New bead called No-Coat for drywall is the best product on the market. It resists quite a bit of damage even from direct hits, has low shrinkage, and is easy to install. Made of a vinyl interior and paper exterior.

    The corner bead was installed wrong. You can try retaping and coating over the bead the whole length of the bead. Hard to tell without a pic. If it is truly plaster and the corner bead looks like a screen you can try mudding over it with a setting type SANDABLE compound. Hope this helps.

    try taking a quick setting joint compound and re finish the corner bead. it typically setts up harder than regular joint compound and should hide the imperfections and get the job done quickly,and as far as the metal corner bead being a thing of the past. i don't think so.
