Sorry to interrupt, I'm Mark here and just wanted to jump in. Doesn't this solution depend on how much grain you want showing?  Sorry I'm such a newbie with this here, I found some old paint in storage and just wondering what to do with it, so I'm pretty much digging out old wood and having a go with it.

Are you looking for a solution to smooth everything out? I think if you lay the paint on thick enough it should get into the grooves well enough. If you don't think the brushes you have in storage will do the trick, you might want to head to a hardware store and ask for what brushes might be better for you. I head down to my nearest one in Ashfield and pretty much get the guy to advise and provide me with everything when I have issues like this.

Not a DIY question but hope that's okay.

I'm not able to paint my house of 30 years myself so am hiring a painter. They come highly rated but would like to hear advice about a paint additive. The painter recommends mixing original Seal-Krete with the paint for longer life. Since I wasn't familiar with it, the contract was written such that I can pass on the Seal-Krete but need to let them know soon.

Seal-Krete is cheaper than the paint so I assume using it would save them on the paint but they don't seem to care one way or the other.

Should I go with the Seal-Krete? What are the advantages or disadvantages? Best percentage?

If it makes a difference, the house is stucco and the paint will be Dunn Edwards SpartaShield in eggshell. They are also painting a cinder block wall around the back yard with the same paint. The location is the Phoenix AZ area so hot, low humidity with little rain.

I am remodeling a kitchen and prepping to paint a plaster wall. The house is 150 years old, and the wall was previously an exterior wall, so I'm assuming it is plaster applied directly over brick, as was common.

After removing the old wallpaper and paste, I applied standard Killz latex primer which worked fine on all parts of the wall except one area close to the floor, directly above the basement. After a couple of weeks, the primer bubbled and peeled off the wall. Next, I thoroughly scraped and sanded the peeling primer and applied Killz oil-based low odor primer. To my surprise, it also peeled and bubbled off the wall in the same spot. I re-scraped and re-sanded the wall again and this time I applied Zinnser Bullseye bonding primer. The same thing appears to be happening again.

What is the solution here? I am guessing that the issue is moisture, so I thought for sure the bonding primer would do the trick, but no such luck. I had another old house and we had a very similar issue with painting plaster over brick wall -- no paint would stick to it. I am considering putting 1/4 inch dry wall over the wall, but that will be labor intensive and I'm hoping to come up with something easier, like skim coating it with a masonry product maybe?

Thanks in advance.
