A lot of professional painters do NOT like Sherwin-Williams ProClassic latex, but, I use a lot of it and, even though you sometimes have to apply 3 coats, it is a great, self-leveling latex paint that will give you an almost glass-like finish on wood trim.

ProClassic waterborne is my preferred enamel. I don't recall ever needing 3 coats.

Re: Paint Will Not Lay Down (Brush Marks)


To the OP, the paint Gymschu is talking about and the paint mark is talking about are different versions. Personally I'd try the waterborne alkyd version. PPG Break-through! is another good self leveling paint I've used.

The only reason painters use this is because they refuse to go to somewhere other than SW to buy paint. It is the best thing SW has just like a quarter pounder is the best burger McDonald's sells. There are much, MUCH better paints out there for trim. SW doesn't sell them so painters don't use them. And that is a fact. Kind of like how Red Robin has much better burgers than Mcdonald's does. They just aren't on every other street corner like mcdonald's (or SW) is.

Availability and hours of operation were the big factors in why I used SWP. There are 4 SWP stores in the region I live and they open early and close later than the competition. The closest BM store is an hour away and doesn't open until 8am weekdays and 9am on saturday. The only PPG store is 1.5 hrs away - I don't know their hours. There is 1 ICC/glidden store but again it's an hour away.

exactly! And that's either a blessing or a curse. There are no other paint companies that are making enough mark-up on their products that they can afford to put a store in every town with a population over 20,000. And that is what is going to create a pretty strong monopoly for SW in the near future if it hasn't already. No one can compete with them much the same as no one could compete with AT&T at one point.

I've seen some KTR's use that and the facilities work I'm associated with.

Thanks

Re: Paint Will Not Lay Down (Brush Marks)


Kemper 100. You didn't know or think to sand before you painted that trim?. It will make a world of difference. Looks like Stevie Wonder painted that! I hope you have a sense of humour. You will learn a lot from these fella's. I love the Advance from BM for the leveling factor. When you purchase a good paint it so important to work with a clean and good foundation or you are throwing money away, not to mention time. I have this argument with my husband and son all the time, I don't care if your paint cost's $1000.00 a can, it will only be as good as your canvas and application allows. Sand and clean and buy the right brush for the type of paint you are using.

Gymschu, thanks for the tip on Pro Classic wall paint. I didn't know it levels well. I will keep that in mind.

Thanks everyone for the tips and advice.

So far the contenders are:

Ben Moore Advance
Ben Moore Aura
Sherwin-Williams ProClassic latex
PPG Break-through

I also asked a pro painter I know and he suggested McCormicks Revo or Generation. He also said the McCormicks Premium White I used work great for him but they spray that product.

Thanks to answer your question everything was sanded, primed, cleaned and painted with a "Wooster" 2-1/2" brush.
