I’m looking for tips on how to obtain a really crisp finish with farrow and ball eggshell paint on a decorative timber cornice.
The first attempt by brush has resulted in a rather rough finish (it didn’t respond well to brushing out) and looks a bit flat and dull.
In comparison the sections which have so far only been undercoated (dulux oil based) look far crisper and given really good definition to the lines and detail of the timber, which has been sanded down and filled to the nth degree.
To achieve the same kind of super slick result with the eggshell, I’ve been advised that applying with a spraygun will achieve pretty much flawless results.
The other option suggested has been the addition of Floetrol to the eggshell and application with a really high quality brush (Wooster).
Can anyone share their experiences of either method, or what you’d recommend I try?
Any input would be appreciated,
