Painting & Decorating Question
Do you have to paint a newly plastered ceiling?
I was just wondering if you definitely had to paint a ceiling after it had been plastered? If so, how long do you have to wait?
No,you dont HAVE to paint new plaster.You can leave it if it looks nice as it is:) A few days is normally enough for it dry.Once ALL the ceiling has gone a much lighter colour (dark patches are still wet) then you can get started with the painting.
