still in the bucket
They look great SL. Good job modernizing the raised panel doors.
I did a cabinet job that I could not spray. Removed the doors and sprayed them off site. Then used Glyptex Water Borne Alkyd. Leveled out so well that you could not tell the difference between the doors and the cabinets. However it took quite a few coats cause the stuff didn't cover well at all. I hear thats common among the new WB Alkyds.have a picky person with cash to spend so cant pass up the job... LOL but i would like some suggestions on the best way to go about it without taking a loss in the money i didn't want to give up.
I plan on a majority of the work being done by brush, but am worried it might end up taking longer than i would want it to. She has 22 cabinets and 12 drawers so its not gonna be easy it's prolly more than i want but need the extra money any or all suggestions are verry appreciated
Thank you : Ry
Ken, which brand did you use? Fine Paints of Europe? or another?Brian, the price will shock you but its great stuff. When I used it I think I used 10% penetrol. It doesn't level or lay out real well as it is thiiiiiick. Great for getting an old entry door smooth as glass without stripping.
i thought when I looked into the MLC product that the specs require that it be on raw wood - previous paint must be removed?Here is the MLC product. It can be reduced enough to spray as well. I didn't give all my secrets away on that oak job I posted pics for. I used a combination of products and prep to get those like that, all of it depends on the primer used. I am not putting that out there for my competitors to read.
A traditional brushing putty is a lot more work.
