Default Difficult gable ceiiling - varnish to white

Job i did recently was a high gable ceiling, exposed beams / varnished ceiling sprayed the whole thing out.

Actually had the undercoat custom made at a local paint shop here on the gold coast. Hes a small business (get stippled / ultratex) and you can tell him what you want in the paint, if its not covering he'll give you some titanium to mix in the paint etc. Quite interesting experience actually having the stuff made especially for my job.

The problems i had on this one were tannin bleed, and adhesion to the varnish. I used acrylic for this one, sprayed almost the entire job. Worked out well.

If i'd had done this by hand would have been there for possibly months ! How would you guys have done this job?

Why the extension wand?

From the looks of it you used a solid stain, if that's true why not use an alkyd primer for three tannins?

This is a job where we did a white wash stain (acrylic) over reclaimed tressel fir with 2 coats of white acrylic minwax on top. Most of the boards yellowed, most of the yellowing died down, but some didn't.

the extension wand was just so i could reach that bit further if necessary where there was no scaffold. There were also several smaller ceilings on the low level much like the height of the one you show there, bit higher, that i could reach with the wand.

Once its on theres no point taking it off just a pain, i'll leave it on till the end of the job unless what im doing changes significantly.

As far as the primer / undercoat. I have constant issues with acrylic products sticking to varnish without sanding, theres very few products here seem to work properly unless your talking oil based, which im not interested in putting through the airless on a job that size.

do you guys use a clean-shot on the extension wands, or something similar. I have seen alot of guys not using them, which can cause a few issues on the finished job.

Fine on the short wand.

Ben-Moores Styx would bond to that. From my limited experience with it you may see some tannins, but once top coated with acrylic they are gone forever.
