Default Introduction

I started painting (as a greenhorn) for a professional when I was thirty and attending a theological seminary in Kansas City, raising a young family. First project: He took me to a new construction site, demonstrated staining a cabinet drawer, gave me the brush and told me to do the entire kitchen cabinets, and left. Painted for professionals off and on. Now I moonlight on my own while I serve my full-time job as a chaplain for a small regional medical center in Kansas.I paint because I enjoy it, plus it helps pay for the extra stuff I enjoy (motorcycling, back packing the mountains. and going to neat places with my wife).

Hi Steve here in Canada where all the lead and alkyds are out and i am learning new ways to paint exteriors. Some of the projects i did this summer were alkyd base using Cetol 1 2 3 and maintenance Re...I used a Sherwin Williams product to try and overcoat a glulam structure what a nightmare. The product was called Super Deck and it does not stick to Cetol 23. When I asked the paint rep, he spec'd out the process and it failed...badly the Super deck did not penetrate and dried like jam in the kitchen table. They admitted making a bad spec for me and i was lead to believe they would pay for the removal,Still no cheque even though I am into them for $3000.00 plus for store purchase every month.
This week i used a water borne semi transparent pretty much turned my cedar black. then i used what i thought was an exterior varnish Cetol Maintenance RE it was sticky all day proving I need to learn more about the new generation of environmental paints. I am fortunate to bid on government contracts and they are sped'd green or LEED certified....DTM latex's onto exposed steel and green paints over Cetol alkyd based paint.
I have been an apprentice since 1982 and after this summer I am not sure how much longer until I am a Master Painter like the Journeymen who taught me. This is why I find myself joining this community.
