applied sandtex primer /undercoat, which i got tinted to the top coat.The primer levelled
lovely and excellent opacity.Tinting is a big time saver,i think i could get away with one top,
but going for two.On the otherside,i applied the sandtex gloss over undercoated surface,would
need at least another two coats,as it was grinning through,and didnt level well.I cant really call this a test,because a test would involve lots of things but you can get an idear,where you can
waste time,and poorfinish.I am looking for a mirror finish so i am going to be picky.
the other side,gras lacquer painted in dulux high gloss,the gardz,is slightly whiter,than the toupret,both surfaces were smooth,and brush free,no brushmarks.If you applied gras laquier to darker colours it would win all day long, myself i think its a close one, we will see after three coats.
Back in the day at college we had exercises to gloss varnish over undercoat. It meant we had to get a flawless finish in undercoat, so we were stippling and all sorts.
You should check out the gloss levels of miranol and the varnish. If there is little to no difference in the numbers, it would be better to apply extra Miranol, to avoid any adhesion issues.
Thanks i think,on the varnish it would be better to use waterbased varnish,over gloss,instead of oil?waterbased varnish dosent yellow.I have just painted a piece of furniture,i used a matt,then put oil based gloss on top,it was a dark ish colour worked really well,just wanted,to make it more durable,and give a shine,will post photo when my cameras working.
This is a new one on me applying varnish over paint could someone enlighten me as to the advantages and the application details?
The other new one was Sandtex is not just a masonry paint company!
