How Many Undercoats Before Top Coats?

Postby ewanirvine69 » Mon Apr 06, 2020 8:36 am


Advice please

I have sanded all the wood work which was gloss.

I am about to undercoat it all including the doors before putting satinwood on top.

Question is. how many coats of undercoat should I use, especially on the doors before the satinwood


would it be better just to use gloss. undercoating

Hi ewanirvine69,
If you are not changing the colour you could just use the satinwood but use an oil based one.
