    Hi you can paint the stain over with a oil based under coat or buy a can of spray stain block from a decorating supplies or one of the DIY shops like b&q. Then when dry paint with emulsion as normal. We use the spay block on small areas as you can paint it over after 30 minutes. If it's a really dark stain give it a couple of coats of block.




    Must type quicker......?

    Use a stain blocker, if you get real problems there are products made by Zinser available from all good decorating suppliers that will block all problems!

    Type of paint you want is called Eggshell. It can be mixed into any colour and as others have said its an oil biased emulsion.
