Time between coats of paint/primer


haha I got another question! Do you guys sand between coats? Even though it went on thin yesterday (I can still see a slight hint of primer in some spots), I still have heavy brush marks, so I'm prolly gonna hit it with some sandpaper before the next app today.. Is this brush related or normal?

You should get about 4 coats out of the can. I don't usually sand latex between coats unless there is a real need for it. It sounds like your brush may be causing the brush marks. People often underestimate the importance of the brush. The good brushes have feathered and beveled tip to give a soft finish stroke and avoid so many brush marks. If the bristle is too stiff and not tipped well you get obvious marks. Are you brushing the whole door? If so I'd recommend a mini roller like Wooster's Jumbo Koter with a 1/4" Mohair cover. Roll it on quickly and then brush back over it with a loaded brush to smooth it out. You'll get better coverage and a smoother finish.

If it's a flat door not a panel and normal roller will probably do as well as a mini would. You just end up wasting more paint to load up a full size cover for such a small job.
