Hello I am sorry it has taken a while to get to you.

Im sorry to read that your work hasn't got the results you expected.

If the paint is now dried thoroughly. I would now use a good primer undercoat. I use Zinsser 123. I find this is a good covering. Then use an oil based eggshell which is also a good cover. when this has dried you can then choose what final finish you want but two coats of the eggshell gives a good finish.

I hope that sorts out the problem for you.
