Are you asking about walls? Or doors and trim?

Rolling paint


Good morning NC, It would be doors and trim(interior). They were originally going to have a heavy grain look, so I was just going to brush. Then the style was changed to a smooth surface. I'm trying to stay away from having to spray them. As things go, the budget remained the same and I'd rather not spend more on materials(spraying would reqiure more paint). Thank you for your time. Sam

Use oil, and forget the floetrol. Oil is much more forgiving, and will give you a nice smooth finish. Dry times will be longer.

Floetrol is ok, but its hard to get the same look, its also easy to add too much which will result in the paint not drying properly, remaining sticky, or drying soft. Sometimes a combination of all.

If you dont want to use oil, Benjamin Moore has an oil product that is soap and water cleanup called "Advance". SW has one too, in their Pro Classic line. I have no experience with the SW.

I have had success in the past with mohair roller covers and alkyd paint to get the look you are seeking. The mohair will still produce a bit of texture but not as bad as a regular cover........and, it won't leave pieces of cover in your nice paint job. If you practice a bit on some scrap wood or metal, you can achieve a nice "almost sprayed on" look.

I'm familiar with Sherwin Williams Pro Classic and it is a great paint for trim, doors, and cabinets. if you use a 1/4 inch nap mohair roller cover you should have no problem getting a smooth finish. I've painted tons of commercial metal doors and frames over the years and have always used a low nap mohair roller cover and the majority of the time you can't tell that the doors where not sprayed.

Thanks to all for your time and input. Just got the message that the paint to be used is a low sheen. Do you agree that with a floe agent and the proper skin I will get good resultsSam

With quality paint, a low nap mohair roller, and proper preparation you will get great results. I personally never thin any paint, I have really never had a reason too. I have painted countless doors including metal doors and frames and have had them come out looking great using a mohair roller and quality brush.

The paint to be used is a Dunn Edwards low sheen, so I do trust its quality. Thank you so much for your time Sam
