I'm repainting my mast
and have just begun testing how to apply the primer coat. I was surprised to see that the primer right out of the can was as thick as peanut butter. I added the required brushing thinner 2333N at 25% and got a consistency that I desired for rolling and brush tipping.
I started on just the mast head
to about 1/2 foot down. It's all brush work but I was disappointed with the brushing characteristics - like warm marshmallows. At first, I had a tendency to work the brush too much dragging the paint
and creating streaks. My technique got better as I went but I need to get much better before I move on to the main body of the mast.
I'd sure appreciate any helpful hints from experienced painters out there. I am expecting that the final coats using Interlux
Perfection will go much better as there are much better brushing characteristics for Perfection that the Primekote primer. But, thus far the Primekote seems nasty.
