Dont know if i should start a new thread but here goes question one. Preferably i’d keep to interior work but its far too nice weather for that so the next few jobs are exterior.
So I’m painting a shed next week. Its been stained before with wickes wood stain. The customer wants to now paint it. I have suggested Little Greene oil eggshell and he has chosen http://www.littlegreene.com/boxington so at least its a nice dark colour. So my question is what kind of primer to use? BIN, Cover stain or 123 (or any other suggestions)? And do i need to use knotting solution then prime or just spot prime with BIN then completely cover with one of the previously mentioned primer?
Edit: And what filler would you recommend? Toupret Gras A Laquer, Sikkens spatchel or something else?
Edit#2: Sorry! I was thinking either a mohair or a wooster polar bear sleeve then lay off with a wooster alpha. Is this the right method?
And another quick question about a personel project of mine at home. What would you use to prime MDF if using LG intelligent eggshell for finish coat? I have been told by my local paint merchant to use cover stain but I am a bit worried to put water based over oil. Yellowing i hear maybe an issue but i am using mid stone warm so i guess that is a non starter considering the colour (http://www.littlegreene.com/stone-mid-warm)
Many thanks in advance for all your help.
