How to Prime a Door for Eggshell Paint as Texture is Awfull


Postby chrisn1988 » Sun Mar 06, 2016 2:44 pm

Hi. I'm having problems painting my doors in my flat. I have used leyland acrylic primer and dulux quickdry eggshell on a door, and texture has turned out awfull. I have also used b&q synthetic brushes. I prefer eggshell because i don't like the sheen of gloss. Any advice would ease my pain. Thanks.

If it was me I would give the doors a good rub down with an electric sander P80 or 120 and then x2 coats of eggshell applied with a foam roller and then lay it of with a good quality brush

I did rub it with 120. Then applied an undercoat. I then applied Dulux eggshell after.
