Duration Home... professional advice requested.
My small shop is finally nearing completion and I've finished prepping the remaining surfaces for topcoats. I'll try and leave out the non-relevant information and keep focused on specifically what I'm having issue with. If you need any other details just ask and I will provide them. FYI, when I abbreviate "SW" I'm referring to Sherwin Williams.
Details relating to this part of the project, in order of completion:
2 coats of SW drywall primer
(all woodwork, shelving, mouldings, built ins, etc. fabricated, installed, and finished from primer to SW Pro Classic interior acrylic latex enamel, etc.)
minor drywall touchup
1 coat of SW multi purpose primer
So now I'm ready to topcoat, and the shelving, built ins, and other permanent fixtures break up the paintable drywall areas quite a bit, so most of the sheetrock areas to receive the Duration Home colors will appear more like small-ish accent walls. Anyway, the colors aren't boring, and they are both a satin finish. One is called Center Stage (extremely vibrant green) SW 6920, which requires a bright yellow base. The other color is called Dovetail (sort of a medium tone gray) SW 7018, which requires a deep base. I already have the proper roller covers, brush types, etc for the project, but it seems like people have had some trouble achieving pristine results with certain colors and/or base types, so now it's Q&A time..
-Due to the many hundreds of feet of "cut in" do you recommend allowing the cut in paint to dry before rolling the walls?
-Are there any specific tips/tricks that you use while working with the duration home bright yellow base, and/or deep base?
Most of my finishing experience lies with things other than drywall, hence the rather oddball questions. The main reason why I'm even bothering to ask about the duration home, with those specific base types, is due to the sheer volume of posts I skimmed in various places online with people pulling their hair out in frustration. Any help, advice, tips, or tricks that you can share with me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
Oh yeah... it's been raining a lot here lately and the relative humidity inside the shop was creeping up near 80% so I've been using my commercial dehumidifier to maintain a steady 50% RH, and the temperature ranges from 70-78 degrees throughout the day/night.
