Flashing is when there is an uneven appearance of the paint. The coating is uneven on the surface.

Possible Causes:

  • The paint was applied unevenly on the surface.
  • There were temperature fluctuations while the paint was drying.
  • There might have been some kind of moisture on the paint while drying.
  • Used paint that was gloss alkyd where direct sunlight hits.


  • Bare areas should be primed before applying the paint.
  • You can add another coat of paint on the shear areas.
  • Thinning touch-up areas can help blind the paint more.
  • Also, when applying exterior alkyd/oil-based paints, it may leave a chalk like finish. Try to rec oat the area and wash the painted area if it appears chalky.
