A real pain and I figured I would try Awlcraft because you can sand out mistakes
, then I read you can't roll it. Mike
How are you mixing your Awlgrip? If you are using the wrong mix of converters and reducers for roll and tip or for your conditions you will have problems. You should be using Awlcat #3 Brushing Converter instead of the spray converter and T0003 or even T0005 depending on temp for your reducer. If you use spray converter (Awlcat #2) and T0001, which is the usual mix for spray, to roll and tip you will have poor results. If you use #3 and T0005 you should have surprisingly long open times, unless of course you paint
in direct sunlight or something silly like that.
