Pro Classic
« on: November 04, 2014, 01:05:00 PM »
I'm trying to brush an interior door, it's a previously painted smooth finish (no panels) I've tried adding various amounts of Floetrol to the point of lossing the sheen, I've tried adding water for more open time but to no avail! working as fast as possible but seems it just tacks up to quickly.
I've 29 years experience and under the impression that this is the right product for the task, I know the pro classic emulsion would perform better but have used other brands of latex paint with much success. any thoughts??

As you know, this is a common issue we all face when using ProClassic on flat panel doors. I don't believe there is a silver bullet to help address your challenges. Although, there are other application process which still might not give you the results your hoping to achieve. I'd be interested to see what some others will think.

definately not the old lead based oils where you could use a mop or a push broom and it would still flow out like glass, but tipping off a flat door is still easily done with the acrylic paints today, trades secrets are just that, good luck, 29 years of painting you should be able to figure it out, i wont tell you but i will give you a few hints

1. its not oil so dont treat it as such
2. use the quick drying characteristic to your advantage
I don't do this for a hobby and I'm damn sure I don't need the practice

We usually prep off doors and spray. the dry time is now a benefit.
