SaaaaaaaaaaaG. What to do when you catch it after drying has begun...


Oh and just checked back and it is sagging everywhere. Not enough paint and it is brush mark city. Too much and it sags! I hate this paint. And I thought I hated Behr! I love the rest of the SW paints I have used, but I really hate this stuff. I don't think the "hard as nails" trade-off is worth it.

Is it POSSIBLE that I got a bad batch of this stuff? I know a lot of you pros must think that most DIYers are idiots who don't know what they are doing, but I get compliments on my painting all the time and I know that I am good at it. I have NEVER come across anything like this before...ever.

Biggest thing that doesn't make sense to me is that the first coat goes over the Zinn 123 FINE. NO ISSUES. It's the second coat (always applied WELL OVER 4 hours later...at least 12) that is giving me serious issues.

Something doesn't seem right. Adding water and having the drying time accelerate and with more brush marks is backward. Perhaps you should take it back and explain the problem.

Is there an expiration date on the can? Perhaps it froze or got overheated in transit or something.

Hang in there bud- I ABSOLUTELY hated Aura satin for many of the same reasons when it came out. I can now use it effortlessly.
Take an area and play with different ways to apply/ thin and handle. You will figure it out.
I doubt it is a bad batch.

You might try a short nap velour roller for the second coat. Either back brush, or not, the pro classic flows so well the stipple will almost go away. Getting it even is important, thick spots will make a run on a thin spot under it, but if its evenly applied it can flow out without runs.
If you can get the hang of it, it's great stuff.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their help in this thread. You guys can be a real encouraging bunch.

Also, just wanted to update. I had no more issues with the ProClassic, so I'm not sure what the deal was. I no longer hate the paint...in fact I love it! Jmayspaint is right...it levels VERY WELL!

Unfortunately I am having to "do over" this big trim and wains project (huge room 1/3 the size of my downstairs). I started to really notice that the color seemed to be "greyish". Dabbed the paint on the Behr painted trim we were trying to match and it was definitely WAY off and definitely looked grey in comparison. SW has always been able to flawlessly match any color I have brought them. When I brought in the Behr sample, the guy said he couldn't match it. After some folks here said they should be able to match it, I brought the sample in again and the girl who helped took it back and whipped up a can of ProClassic for me in no time. I just ASSummed she got it to match. Well she didn't.

Took the sample and can of paint in and they could not even get close (trying with a new can of paint). So I went to BM and they matched it PERFECT. But now I think I picked the wrong sheen, hence the other thread.

The first couple times I used the P/C I hated it. Went back and talked to my S/W rep and was told I was working it to much. After just a few brush strokes it seemed to stiffen up and you would start to get a lot of brush marks. I added water and I tried Flotrol and seemed to make it worse. Rep told me it already has levelers in it and by adding more it was affecting the paint. Told me to just put it on and leave it alone and let it do what it was supposed to do. Tried it and it has been my trim paint ever since. I have rolled it brushed it and sprayed it and have never had a problem with sagging so maybe lighter coats then leave alone and see what happens.
