Normally these paints still need a primer especially with MDF which can be very absorbent. I hope this works out for you otherwise you will need to strip it all off and start agin or use a sealant finish like Zinzer BIN.

Hi Woodsmith, Thank you for your reply, it is Wilkinsons own brand one coat high gloss, it stated that no need for primer or undercoat, I have now coated the MDF with 2 coats of PVA Adhesive sealer, and 1 coat of the gloss, it is not perfect but I hope a second coat will do the trick.

HELP PLEASE.........MDF Painting

Hi, I have just had some pipes boxed in, and decided to paint it, being a novice, thought it would be easy, bought a tin of high gloss paint it said no need to prime or undercoat, I have put first coat on, and it has just absorbed it into the board, please any advice would be welcome
Thanks  Huh
