About 12 months ago I painted the wood in the house with brilliant white
gloss. It was a decent brand.
6 months later it started to go yellow. I did a moan to the manufactures and
was told that that is the way it goes these days.
I then just painted over it with decent quality brilliant white bathroom and
kitchen water based paint.
The yellow is bleeding through.
If I give it another coat will the yellow still bleed through?
Or, am I doomed?
Shellac will seal the paint to stop any bleed through, I had the same
problem when I painted some windows in white Acrylic.
However it won't stop any re-occurring yellowing, only bleed through.

this isn't bleeding yellow, its ageing yellow from UV.,
Today's eco friendly paints simply have crappy safe organic pigments.
Never used to happen with white lead.
Or it may be the matrix its in. Instead of nice stable clear oil based
ones,. its a water based heap of shite acrylic that not UV stable.

For some of the year, some of the rails get sunshine in the afternoon and
there's no yellowing - indeed no noticeable difference along the length.
They don't make 'em like what they used to.
