I recently painted a wall. After I was done, the wife decided that she
wanted to move a shelf. I removed the two wall anchors and patched the
whole with dry wall putty. I sanded the putty to be flush with the wall and
used the left over paint to paint over the putty. I tried to feather the
edges of the paint to blend in with the existing coat of paint.
Now, when I look at the wall at an angle, I can see what looks like a dark
ring around where I painted. The centre looks fine and I cannot see the
discolouration when I look at the wall dead on. Unfortunately, when you
first walk up to the wall, you are at an angle.
What did I do wrong (other than not patching the wall first before having
painting it)? What can I do to fix it? Do I need apply a coat of paint to
the whole wall?
Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated!
