True, but it help the finish coat stay adhered when you scrub on it.

I suppose, but I believe it would stick to a latex primer as well as an oil based one. Besides who would be scrubbing THAT hard?



Rick? Help me out here.

You are better off to put the oil paint straight on the wood than to put a latex primer underneath it.

I just think oil based paint will penetrate wood better than a latex primer will. The better the penetration, the less chance of peel.

BM Oil based paint question.


I would agree with you Matt, for exterior, especially in warm weather where the latex dries very quickly. Longer oils penetrate better for that environment. And interior oil over bare wood should not peel, though you won't get full sheen development with two over bare wood. Exterior finish over bare wood will fail.
I disagree though about latex primer indoors. You'll always be better off priming and latex primer inside is perfectly fine. Some latex primers are ready for top coat in an hour, I doubt the paint cos would make a product that wouldn't grab the wood in that period of time. I don't think it is all about penetration.
