alkyd paint
« on: March 14, 2008, 01:33:55 PM »
Have any of you used the new improved Dulux Alkyd paint lately? If is so thick it want even pour out of the can. It's as thick as joint compound & says not to thin. Yea like to see anyone use it without thinning it. I know use the BM Impervo but we wanted to use what was used before so it would match better.

Lyn,

I have tried it. I recommend a push broom applicator... ;D

That is about what it takes to move it. We did thin it but it was terrible to work with. I will never buy it again.

Is it similar to Glidden Evermore Line, because that is also like molasses....dries to a beautiful finish though. :)

Actually it is worse than molasses, you have to pull it out with a paint stick.  :o
