SpeedHide primer question for "Slickshift"


Hi Slickshift

I've seen a few posts of yours regarding Pittburgh Paints' Speedhide primer for new drywall. I've looked into it a bit and have found 2 Speedhide products. Could you tell me which of the following is the product you use?

1) High Build Interior Latex Primer/Surfacer (product code 6-4)
2) Quick Drying Interior Latex Sealer (product code 6-2).

I've finished drywalling, mudding/taping, and sanding and am ready for a primer. I plan to use BM Regal AquaPearl on the walls and BM Impervo for trim. What do you recommend for a white ceiling?

Thanks in advance!

Cheers

SpeedHide primer question for "Slickshift"


If Slick doesn't answer, I would imagine his choice is number 2. I would think 1 would be for covering up lousy drywall jobs, which is something I hope you don't need. He usually recommends Muresco for the ceiling, which is made specifically for that use. (It is a low-spatter forumla, I think; I don't know what it gives up to achieve that particular quality.)

SpeedHide primer question for "Slickshift"


Yup
Most high-builds really work better when sprayed
Muresco is a great ceiling paint, though the new Waterborne (ultra-low VOC) seems good too

SpeedHide primer question for "Slickshift"


Thanks Slickshift and SirWired

Great, thanks for answering my questions. My drywall job actually turned out very good. My first time putting up rock....I took my time with the mud and tape and am very pleased. Well, I should say, I'm happy at this point anyway. I guess I'll find out how I really did after the finish paint is up.

So I just picked up a 5-gal of Speedhide Quick Drying Interior Latex Sealer and am putting on a coat tonight. I plan on cutting/rolling it on since I don't have a sprayer.

Thanks for the tip on Muresco for ceiling.

Cheers!
