Can you show me how to do repairs on darker colored walls?

I've been having problems with my system. I use a magic marker to circle my repairs, but the paint won't cover the marker.

That's the most inefficient way of doing things. So, if you have 7 repairs, you only do six of them?

No, what I'm saying is...I will only do 6 repairs per project. If there are more than 6 repairs, then you need to hire a drywall contractor.

I mean, I'm a painter, not a magician.

I use a quality primer for my plaster and no flashing. One time I used zinger for spot priming then that flashed.

That ladder looks like it's for daredevils
