Brush Marks

Hello, I am having a problem with brush marks when I'm painting with SW ProBlock Primer. Anyways, if I paint over it with a top layer coat with their Proclassic Satin Paint / Purdy Nylon brush, will the brush marks still show?

Any brush marks or texture will show through on paint. You can sand lightly and remove the brush marks for a better final finish


If you think you can, or if you think you can't, you're probably right.

The ProBlock is rather thick
Though properly applied ProClassic enamel will hide any visual discrepancies, any actual "lumps" or "high spots" should be sanded smooth

Don't over brush, and you have to be quick especially when you use Proclassic.

If by "brush marks" you mean the primer has inconsistent pigment coverage, then don't worry. If by "brush marks" you mean there are furrows in the coat, then all you have to do is give the surface a quick sanding. Primer is made to sand easily.
