Painting Over Markings

Another ‘Ask Mike’ question:


okay, so when I was 12 me and my friends thought it would be a great idea to have some fun with some sharpies on my painted walls. im sick and tired of looking at the ginormous cartoon dinosaur over and over again each morning. I know we have the same paint we used somewhere in our garage or something…if I paint over the marker will it be noticeable? it will be the same exact color the walls are now…


Yes, it probably will be noticeable. You have to apply a stain blocker over the markings first and then paint. Note: you may need two applications of the stain blocker to fully cover the markings. It is a great idea to have the stain blocker tinted to the finish color so once you apply the paint, you may only need one coat of paint. Sherwin-Williams or your local paint store will have the stain blockers you need. Let me know if you need anything else.
