Default Fresh Start Superior

Great coverage over bare wood. We did several new wood doors yesterday and got a away with one coat of primer and one finish coat. If only Aura would cover this well.

Are you talking about Fresh Start primer from BM?

I like the FS oil...but I don't think it's any better than Coverstain.

I love coverstain..I have 2 gallons of it in my truck as I type this... and not for anything specific.

I just like having it...(and bragging about it, apparently)

Sorry for the de-rail

Cover stain seems to be the magic bullet! I never knew it was a good interior millwork spray primer until JP and a local contractor both talked about it bring their fave.

I'm mildly confused but at peace with it, but are you comparing a primer to aura?

I guess if you are looking to "get away" with one finish coat, props dude.

It's a new version of Fresh Start. I think it's based on the Gennex platform. As mentioned the coverage is great.

I'm actually getting ready to do an exterior in one coat of Fresh Start alkyd tinted to color and one coat of Aura. This is a repaint in the same color as what's on there now and it's in excellent shape. They just want to go to a latex paint as opposed to a latex stain. I'm looking forward to trying Aura for the first time

I'm actually using Fresh Start for the first time tomorrow...trying to cover a very dark color and top coat in white. It is gennex based so I have high expectations. I'll let you know how it goes.

I think some of you guys are confusing the superior primer to the regular 100%acrylic freshstart. Superior primer is awesome, I love the coverage and I've used it for exterior stuff also.

Fresh start 100% acrylic did fair...not bad. Need to look into Superior though - not sure that was something different?

I love it. It sticks, covers great and flows off the brush nice.

We were doing a kid's bedroom ceiling and going from midnight blue to white. The ceiling also had silver/grey stars painted on the dark blue. After THREE coats of fresh start we had successfully gotten to white, but the stars were still visible. The owner didn't know anything about the stars as they were there when the house was purchased, but we tested them ahead of time and they seemed to be nothing more than paint stenciling - maybe they were graphite or something.

Anyway, Fresh Start really had us back to white at TWO coats - we only did the third to try and kill off the stars. It's $34 a gallon in my area. Not cheap. I plan to use it again.
