Hello to everyone, and deep bows to thse who share their knowledge so freely.
I really like the ethos of traditional painter and am very impressed with the range of knowledge that you guys possess.
I am 47 years young and came into the trade from school joining my Dad, my grandfather and all his boys; 5 in number, were painters.
I have to say i had one of those moments when i started reading some posts and blog; i thought i was pretty clued up about decorating…i have to say humbly that i know nothing… which is a starting place for learning i guess.
I am working on some fitted furniture ant the moment struggling to get a good finish with f&B eggshell in this heat. Reading some posts yesterday revealed my mistake
The wardrobes i am painting are Tulip and mdf, i primed with Zinsser 123 plus, because the wood looked like it might bleed. I couldnet get a nice finish even with using floetrol so after reading the advice on using stain cover i went backwards and coated it with that today; i am a convert, it fills up the grain nicely and sits down lovely nice surface to start eggshell on monday.
So thankyou to those of you who share your knowlege it is very helpfull and i have many questions so look forward to getting to know you all.
