    Hi, Recently bought a Wagner control pro 350m airless paint sprayer 520w and did an exterior job 30 meters wall (concrete blocks) very happy with the results. For this first project I used a 517 tip. My question is: Would like to do some more finer/delicate work using the Wagner control pro...

    My previous post was closed and referred to another site because I must have used the wrong word. I mentioned not being a pro, which is true compared to most on this forum, but I am not an incompetent painter and have painted for 10+ years. I am currently working on a project painting a large...

    Hi all - I’m a long time reader of paint talk but this is my first post. I’ve been painting for many years but do not know the best product/procedure for this situation: A lady painted over factory finished cabinets with straight latex. The paint could peel off like wallpaper. It wasn’t too...

    Hello Everyone, I have a lot of experience with interior and exterior painting, but have always avoided cabinets. I am now moving into a new construction home but I was too late to choose my cabinet color (they gave me dark brown). The cabinets are beech and stained in a dark brown. The wife...

    Do any of you have issues with paint bridging to the tape when you're spraying multiple coats on a cabinet set? I'm wondering if you ever have to mask, prime, paint first coat, partially remove masking before first coat dries, then re-mask later for subsequent coats. In this case I've got...

    A client of mine has selected SW 6076 Turkish Coffee as their kitchen cabinet color. Their cabinets will be sprayed with an airless. I had planned on painting the cabs in ProClassic Oil satin but this color can't be made in ProC. Anybody have experiences (good or bad) using ASE Satin oil on...

    Hello all..... A customer of mine wanted me to paint his lacquered oak cabs. I have already done the prep, and cleaned with deglosser. My problem is I cant get oil primer in my county anymore, and don't want any tannin/stains bleeding through. Advice on SW primers that have worked for you guys...

    Hi everyone. Let me start off by saying that this is my first paint talk post. Next week I'm going to be doing a kitchen face lift, painting some lacquered cabinets, and re-tiling in an occupied home. I live in California, so oils and lacquered paints are sadly out. I will be tenting off the...

    I am spraying some cabinets for a friend who is trying to pick up a contract to do a bunch of kitchen cabinets. He use to just faux but is expanding to do more painting because the faux trend is on the way out. Anyway, I had sprayed a coat of XIM over the cabinets and he came in and sanded...
