Sagging Aura
 
This is not the 1st time I've painted with Aura. Not sure what the deal is but 1st cut as well as 1st coat.....saggy Aura. When that 1st coat is dry, gonna have to take out the 120grit - just like I had to the corners.

What gives..
I'm going to have to fight with this until the 2nd coat is done.....
Luckily, this is just a small laundry room

Aura can be tricky. I usually give it just a little shot of water to loosen it up and not lay on a heavy cut. It's great stuff but does have it's things..

Brushjockey,

About how much water to the gallon?

I figure you can go from experience and how it feels?

not much- about half a cup and see how it goes. Too much and the color separates. Just want to loosen it up.

Must have been rusty paint hands. Decided not to load it up as much on the 2nd go round. I thought it was going to be a bit orange peelish but it settled out nicely as it dried.

Not thriled about the color though. Maybe it will grow on me. Afterall, I did paint like 6 samples and chose it.
Anyone using Muralo these days.
I loved Muralo but I like Aura better for it's washibility without burnishing. Kids had sticky fingers ;-)
