Whats the can say?

Yup. Sez right there...

Obviously it's an unanswerable question because there are so many different kinds of paint. Follow manufacturer's directions.

BTW: How many pieces of string does it take to reach the moon?

Piled on top of each other or tied together?

Mr. Paint 03-08-2013 06:51 PM

One, if it's long enough. :laughing:

Hmm- string theory, now I know!

In a perfect world, I follow the instructions on the can. In an imperfect world where people are in a hurry to have their painting completed, I cheat a little. Box fan gets turned on in hopes of drying a wall or a room in less than 2 hours so another coat can be applied. Not perfect, not recommended, but sometimes necessary.
