Thats why colors cover better over flats, the drag of the brush isn't slippery, it is porus.

That is also why you bid more material for covering flats than sheens.

Yeah, it's easier to get good film build over flat. It's not impossible to get good film build over glossy enamels, just takes a little different application technique.

I was going to suggest skimming those dastardly red walls, but given the grave consternation derived from this tumultuous situation, I believe TJ has offered the most viable solution.


Yo Bender, take notice. There's gotta be a TWS in there somewhere.
