We removed wallpaper in the kitchen and dining area. We removed as much wallpaper adhesive as possible. Then, we spackled the holes and peeling paint. Then, sanded and cleaned the walls of dust. Then we painted Gardz on the walls. However, I see some flashing on the areas that have mud. Is this normal after painting with Gardz? I'm worried that if I put on a final top coat of paint I will still see flashing. What do I do? See picture attached.

Read the instructions on the can of Gardz very carefully. It should say at some point that if a first coat of Gardz shows any flashing or dull areas, cover those areas with another coat of Gardz. I make it easy by just rolling a 2nd coat of Gardz. A 2nd coat goes twice as fast and uses about half as much Gardz to get a reasonably uniform coat of Gardz sheen-wise.

Ideally, you should Gardz the whole area over after removing the wallpaper and as much wallpaper glue as possible, then make repairs, then coat with Gardz over repairs.

Thank you. I will apply Gardz again and hope the flashing will disappear.

Yep, it's normal. In the future, hit those mud areas 1st with a light coat of Gardz, allow it to dry, then coat the entire wall with Gardz. If you have more questions, please visit our sister site at the link below. Good luck.
