I’ve decided to give this stuff a try because fumes from oil are getting silly. I have ordered a Proform Picasso, as recommended by someone on TP (thanks!), but I just have a few questions:
Is it really necessary to wet flat previous oil paint? I’ve never done this, have read it’s messy, and usually use foam sanding pads for panelled doors and moulded skirting. Does anyone have a good and tried method for wet flatting?
I think Andy mentioned part-cleaning brushes when using water-based paints. Could someone be more specific? Does this mean washing out every half hour or so, and use of a comb? Is a complete rinse-out necessary? How does this work?
Anything else I might need to know, maybe a roller recommendation?
While I’m asking about water-based, I do have a job coming up where the customer wants gloss, but I’d like to use water-based. Any recommendations? It’s a hall, stairs and landing and I only want to do two coats. Doesn’t need to be perfect, as customer “just wants it painting”. No, not a rental! Wondering if anyone had used Dulux Ecosure recently? I remember using their Aquatech Gloss years ago and it wasn’t great.
Any help/advice greatly appreciated.
