FT painter/FT dad
Any of you guys still able to purchase oil based finish paint? It was completely taken off shelves here over a year ago.
Yeah, oil looks good on interior trim, but I have given up on it due to all the hassles associated with it. I'd use oil inside way before I'd use it outside though.I get the impression that most of you guys here don't like oil base paint, or did i read it wrong?
Are you talking a bout interior or exterior?
I personally love using oil base paint on interior trim. Oil looks much better when finished.
Yep, all oil is still available here in MI. Rich, what products do you like to use for staining exteriors? Semi-trans siding, and decks in particular. I use cabots oil for both. I am however, relatively young and see the tides changing. The problem is using products that don't match up to what the competition is using. Have you found any waterbased materials that perform well (as good) for these surfaces? I advertise low odor and zero VOC product availability but rarely get requests for these products. I am sure it is my location that dictates these responses. I am more comfortable using waterbase on interiors rather than exteriors due to the longevity issue. My main concern is losing clients because of bad product performance and longevity. While I am on the subject, does anyone use interior latex stains or finishes with good results? Other than INT stains and finishes I try and use all acrylic products. Oh yea, I prefer to brush interior trim with oil when I have to. Only because it looks so much better, but it still STINKS! All your knowledge is appreciated :yes:Yeah, oil looks good on interior trim, but I have given up on it due to all the hassles associated with it.

Not in my opinion, no...does anyone use interior latex stains or finishes with good results?
Yeah the pro-classic is a tricky paint. Sets up WAY too fast and doesn't have a true semi gloss sheen, it's more like a satin.Sherwin Williams "Pro Classic" is all right, but you have to get it right the first time, because if you back brush it later it get ropey
