I posted a few months ago about my white gloss in the hallway yellowing very quickly, since then I've found out it is because it gets no daylight, or very little. So despite sanding them down & repainting they are yellow again! (have been using oil based paint)
Going to use a water based paint this time, will that still yellow? Also do I need to strip the other stuff off completely or just rub it down?
Thanks

And looking online at paint am I right in thinking that the quick drying gloss is water based?

Iv'e never had white gloss go yellow, even when it's been 5-10 years old.

I hadn't until I moved here a yr and a half ago. The hallway is very dark with no windows & from googling apparently lack of sunlight causes oil based gloss to yellow over time :thinking:

Ah. I've often wondered why the white gloss work on the window sill goes yellow under my lamp-stand. Now I know! Thanks!

I just had some painting done and the decorator said gloss was not the done thing as much nowadays, he told us to have satin on the doors and skirtings.

I dont very much like gloss, would like to varnish it but would take too long atm & would make the hall even darker. I've got some vinyl silk thats waterbased, I may give that a try :thumbsup:

I know it looks awful once you notice it & it really bugs me. Have repainted about half a dozen times in a yr and a half.

You could get that plastic skirting. I've got it in the living room, and it's great. No fuss, no painting EVER! Just wipe with a cloth, and it's new again!!
