    Used this chantilly lace scuff-x satin and its the best wb I have used. 7 door single side and the reset of a staircases like spindles, frames rails ect all got 2 coats. Applied real easy plus painted my bathroom boxing which has been ongoing for a few weeks what with new pan conector and mdf filled with dry flex. Just finished and I still have a good ⅓ of a tin left.. Amazing value I think. As you can see I've just started to paint the tin.. [​IMG]

    Scuff X is all I use on woodwork now, nice open time, tough finish and really fast drying times.

    I will be using some soon but on walls and not for the hpk I priced. Good to hear it's another BM paint that goes a long way :thumbup:
    Unless it is gloss, I think I'll be doing the switch for any further woodwork jobs.

    Out of interest and something that hit me right in the face there, @Wayners
    JMO and I don't know if you think I am picky but, the placement of the sticky label showing colour and date of mixing is very poorly placed. Looks like it is "that'll do" there.
    If you have a few jobs out of that tin and that is the side that was always poured from, you will eventually lose that label and it's details. As can be seen now, there is already paint on the code.

    Better to place it as Shaw Paints @BenjaminMooreUK always do, around to the side and out of the way of any pour...

    I always pour to the front of the tin, so as not to cover the info on the back. Drives me mad working with decs who just pour willy nilly. I think I may have ocd :blush:

    I pour from the destruction side as I don't need to see the destructions and how to use the paint.
    What I mean is, the writing is too small for me to read that side anyway, so that's the side I'll pour from :biggrin:

    I see it not that I'll read, but customer. It can help when discussing limitations etc of paint if you can show them it on the tin

    Probably the bit on the label that says 'Baily paints'...

    Always prime, usually High Hide can't change my ways on that, so its always a 3 coat job.

    After using Scuff-x, Aura and Advanced, the Scuff-x came bottom of the pile, Advanced my runaway favourite and between the Aura and Scuff-x, thought the Aura looked more solid, all these thoughts after using on the brush.

    But when I see pics and feedback when Scuff-x has been sprayed, always looks great, so I need to spec it on a job and give it a whirl, BM Paint still my greatest find from PPS forum though :thumbup:
