How to stop water stains from bleeding through paint – How to hide water stains alternative


now today i’m just going to show you how to touch up some water stains mmm without using actually a proper stain sealer now what it is I’ve got a few stains that have come through on the ceiling so i’m going to go through and
touch them all up. but the stain sealer i had with me has gone
hard in the tin so I have to use an alternative because where i’m working at the moment is
a 100 ks from the nearest paint shop. so what i’m going to do is use some cold galv primer that i often use for metal ah what I will do is i’ll spray this over all the water stains the only issue with this is it is grey so i will need a few coats to cover
it, ah but what you can actually use is any automotive paint ah that is lacquer based
or any oil uh turps based paint and that will actually hold the stain back uh the reason
i’m using this is it drys very quickly and i could probably re-coat this in probably 10 or 15 minutes that how quick this will dry on the ceiling so if you find yourself
in the situation that you have got some water stains but you haven’t got and stain sealer
uh you can use basically any lacquer based or turps based spray can paint but try to find one that dries quickly, so now i have covered my stain i will let that dry which as you can see at the moment its drying very very quickly I have actually touch it all
ready only just a little bit has come off so i will let that dry i may have to go over
it 3 times for it to cover but its better then me driving 100 kilometre’s to the paint shop to just buy some stain sealer so hopeful that will get you out of trouble if you find yourself in the same situation.

  1. i like KIllz myself the latex is even good for most water stains, but heavier ones require the oil based stuff and boy does it stank

  2. Good to see you making videos again. You taught me to how to paint my entire rental property a few years ago, like, or better than a pro. Thanks for latest tip.

  3. thank you . So you're saying you can choose a zinc spray for what we use for after welding for a water stain and that will stop the stain from bleeding through. I hope this reaches you and I hope you're doing well.
