Right- trim- a job for brush. Sprays are , well, have their applications. Also, never seen a water base paint that doesnt leave streaks/brush marks. May be it exists, but just that I have never seen it. Oil is the only almost streak free paint.

I always paint trim using a Wooster Chinex brush, Dunn-Edwards Suprema or Spartawall, in Semi-gloss or low-sheen. If the trim has yet to be installed and there is enough of it, I'll typically spray primer to seal it well.

LoL @ $60+/gallon!

There are better paints for far less. Dunn Edwards Aristowall is cheaper, more durable, levels better, and it resists blocking. It's a water-base Alkyd hybrid that has most of the characteristics of Oil-base but without the smell, solvents, chalking, etc.

Hmmmm, a "hybrid"?? LOL. Kinda like mixing water and oil(?). This I gotta see. Thing is- Ive never seen it around here in stores. Levels off JUST LIKE OIL? You sure??

That may very well be, but I, for one, cannot get it here.

Me either- but a great trim paint is worth the price. Earns me money every time.

I'm liking BM Advance more than I thought I would, even with it's long recoat time.

From Dunn-Edwards website
"Operates more than 105 stores throughout Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas "

Guess I'm SOL.
