- decorating advice – which paint please
Not gloss – but dont get the dulux eco emulsion. Just got a little tub to brighten up my hallway, and its horrid it had settled and took a lot of stirring but still a bit lumpy, went on ok eventually but have now discovered it has a slight odour of old wet dog – really not pleasant!Posted 4 years agopeterichMember
Hi guys im going to be doing all the wood work in my house again, I did most of it a couple of years ago and made the mistake of using b and q own brand undercoat and gloss (its now gone yellow)Posted 4 years ago
So my question is for all you pro decorators out there which gloss, undercoat and also emulsion shall I use for best results
also any extra tips to achieve a good result welcome
Thanks in advance
DO NOT buy cheap paints; they will be made from lots of fillers and thickeners and very little titanium dioxide and other quality additives. There’s a reason why they are cheap and TiO2 is expensive nowadays.
Go to a Dulux Decorator Centre, get a loyalty card and enjoy the 10% discount. You will also get free, experienced and friendly advice and quality equipment. On the face of it Dulux trade paints look more expensive than the garbage you buy at B&Q and even the Dulux “amateur” paint at B&Q but it’s made for professionals who want to put on two coats not four and who appreciate a paint that can be pulled out along an edge. With the discount this probably works out cheaper in the long run than using cheap paint. It’s certainly less effort and time wasted.
But some people will always operate on “optical pricing” no matter how many times you tell them. Sigh.Posted 4 years ago
