Default BM Ben Line

For those who may know BM can out with a line geared towards homeowners I guess... Kind of trying to get the HO's out of the big box and into a BM store. Anyways we were comp'd one to try and we tried in a bath. Semi gloss (no satin option) in BM South Beach over a bright yellow. I was impressed, nice coverage second coat was quick since first coat covered well.
It does use the Aura tints and I guess that makes it lower in VOC's Price point was in low to mid 20's for contractors low 30's retail. Now the Natura line complete zero voc is coming out soon and yet have been able to try that. But this would be a nice product for clients on a budget or hell maybe I'll use it at my house. I heard from some guys in my area using it that the Eggshell is flatter then say Regal eggshell. I will try Eggshell and give my report afterwards. I have been using Aura on 80% of our repaints since Aura came out.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

MAK,

I think our Scottish friend is having a two-fer. I little poke at you AND at me.

But I'll forgive him since his country did give us many a tasty distilled amber beverage from that little island named Islay

Ya that's it

I was making fun of your can on the sink unit Mako (j/k = joke).

I'm not Scottish daArch - I'm English. Well actually I'm half Welsh and half Hungarian. I'm what's known as wel-hung

You think that was a bad color for an exterior...... Painted this house for a blind lady a few years ago. She picked the colors!!!!!! She was in her 50s & lost her sight in her mid 20s. She was going by ger memory of colors when we were going over her color choices. My kids call it the Barney house.....
