Hi Howzz and many thanks for coming back to me … apologies to be late on reply.
Yes materials sound expensive … I feared they might be but have to say, all the ‘upgraded’ product that I’ve invested in (as a result of TP’er’s advice over the years) I’ve not regretted one bit. Quite the reverse … finding all these super products and paints is like having had Aldi and Tesco steak for years (no issue with that) but then having a Thomahawk steak at Wolfgang Pucks place on Park Lane. Is it expensive. … sure as *** it is, is it better, damn right it is … by quite a huge factor. … and so it goes with this stuff.
Possible to list a few examples (names/sizes/makes etc) of each of the 3/4 coats? And maybe some links? Or as you say a supplier you can recommend?
As for process, Certainly for me it would in no way take up too much space and I very much doubt for the TP folk on here. That’s why we all come hear, to listen to folks who genuinely know their stuff and are happy to share in a way that makes us amateur confident to dip a toe.
Although the target area we are looking at doing is relatively small, these things have a habit of growing!!! So whatever I can master here, I have zero doubt will grow into other areas … I was relatively happy with my paint finishes prior to 2013 and finding TP before learning the ‘dark ways’ of Kodrin Spachtel or Presonett Joint Filler and decent paints … the likes of which I’d never heard of!!!_
So please share as much ‘step by’ data as you have the time to spare. Or if you have any links to ‘step by’ articles or videos (such as the one you kindly sent) they are in no way wasted. Even though I have mastered some of the ‘No.10 door finish’ and ‘flat wall plaster polishing’ and done a huge number of rooms here, I still refer to those same articles to remind the best way to do on a regular basis. Absolutely invaluable. Would be great if you could do the same here. I have found an article done by another Tp’er but the photos don’t show unfortunately.
Appreciate you taking the time to steer me the right direction. Look forward to hearing from you
