Acrylic over fiberglass filler.


Hi, we’ve just painted our daughter’s house this last week – NZ summer – We have some blisters and think your article on this is the answer. We have a wooden wall to finish. Ivy had dug it’s roots in so it needed lots of Fiberglass filler. Is there anything we should do to make sure painting it will be successful?

  1. To ensure a successful paint job follow these steps:

    1. Clean the surface thoroughly: Remove any dust, debris, or loose particles from the wall to provide a clean and smooth surface for painting.

    2. Sand the surface: Use sandpaper to gently sand the fiberglass-filled areas to create a smooth and even surface. This will help the paint adhere better and result in a more professional finish.

    3. Prime the surface: Apply a high-quality bonding primer that is suitable for both wood and fiberglass surfaces, an exterior acrylic is a good choice. This will help the paint bond to the surface, provide better coverage, and enhance the durability of the finish.

    4. Choose the right paint: Select a paint that is appropriate for both wood and fiberglass surfaces. Consider using a good quality exterior paint with a satin sheen, this will be weather-resistant and designed to provide long-lasting protection against the elements.
