brushmarks in Bulls Eye 123


Dont' get me wrong, I didn't reject the bulls eye 123. The Advance is for the top coat not the pimer. I didn't realize Advance made a primer too.

Anytime you drag a brush against an edge, you risk getting a run/buildup, so you have to adjust the angle of approach. Example: When you paint crown with dental detail, above and below the detail gets layed off horizontally, but the dental detail gets layed off vertically.
Glad to hear the airplane analogy worked for you.

This statement from you. It looked like you thought I rejected the bulls eye in favor of the Advance since i didn't mention that the Advance was topcoat only not primer.

Crossed signals thats all. Just out of curiosity, what were you refering to in that first statement?

I reread and see that you had problems with Olympic finish paint covering over pencil marks. Sometimes a primer/sealer will not look like it covered a stain. But, when you put the finish on it's gone. It's the finish you had a coverage problem with and switched. That's a big jump from Olympic to Advance. Sometimes I just get so confused, lol.

Yup, Got fed up with cheap paint and ponyed up for the good stuff. Never looking back now. Advance is worlds better than the fasthide alkid and is water cleanup to boot.

Maybe he meant the paint.
