Noisette, I'd like to return a favour as one good turn deserves another!

So, here is a link that might be of interest (and don't forget to invite me to dinner and serve paneer with frozen grated lemon!)

Hi mint, Thanks for the link :-) Thirty minutes would be a big improvement over my previous attempt! A couple of days and gallons of very expensive full-cream milk, if I remember rightly ;-) Dinner invite will be on it's way when I've finished decorating ;-)

You don't know what paneer is? :-o How have you managed all this time? It's Indian curd cheese. Usually served in cubes lightly fried and with a spicy spinach purée. Palak Paneer. Bet you feel much better now...;-)

And that is how I make curd for Yorkshire Curd Tart, just don't squash it together, but drain it in muslin for a couple of days, leaving it lumpy.

To the op, would you get away with just getting paint and touching up. Never worked for me, the 'new' paint glaringly obvious. So the lot would need redoing.

Re: Dulux Paint from UK

We'll see, idun. I know what you mean about patches standing out. The paint will be arriving next weekend :-) At worst I'll need to do some walls in their entirety but at least they're not the very high ones! I'm getting too old to be clambering about on ladders 5m up....

You need to learn how to feather out the new paint onto the old surface, no hard edges. look for areas of natural shade and feather into those. almost dry roller roll out the paint until it just poorly covers the surrounding area (feathering). Once dry you shouldn't be able to see it, (usually)

Re: Dulux Paint from UK

Feathering paint is also called 'faking it in' around Nottingham. I don't know whether it's just a local expression or if it's more widely used. Any road (that is pure Nottingham), properly applied it can be very effective.
