I guess but you were the one that brought up price and high end and the thread is about white paint not the cost of it who which line it is or who makes it just what covers the best.

OK, keep using your ten dollar paint then, we will get back to white paint issues.

Between me and you some of those deep base colors even in aura ( yellow) given the proper tinted prime under coat are still a hassle. In my experience aura has mastered red gotta giver thanks for that!! don't even need the tinted primer!!

I rarely use cheap paint...Sometimes I use the superspec for the first coat and then top it off with Moorestyle...I have to use BM because the color selected is in their pallet...There is no way to match "pure White"...
I agree about the aura if you give it a real "painter inspection" ( anal eye) you can see the cut line and lap lines... this result was even produced when I did wet on wet and rolled real tight???? I hope the BM guy gets back. It would be real helpful!!

Yeah, if you only use black, the white will turn light blue

If you have a Lowe's near you, I will promise you that two coats of Pro2000 by Valspar with cover. In most cases, it will look decent after one coat but a great finished product after two coats. It comes in Antique White or High Hide White which is equivelant to a pure white. It is there packaged white. There are only 10 stores in Canada. Not sure where you are ?

SW has a "classic white" that we have used often. It usually covers fairly well. Most of the time we have used it, it has been in their Pro Classic oil line.

Thanks but I have to use Benj Moore....They selected oc-64 or "pure white"...It would be almost impossible to get that matched in any other product...I've decided to try 2 coats of their midline,Moorestyle...If that doesn't work,I will paint the first coat in Aura,the second with Moorestyle....That way I can sand out the lap-lines that Aura is famous for...If that doesn't work,I guess it will be 3 coats!

never had lap lines in Aura, (and we use it for all repaints now) matter fact it levels off better than any other BM product period...

Lap lines to some, may not be lap lines to others.
