    I had to give Tikkurila Anti Reflex 2, Optiva 5 and Intact 8 a run out some time and, this house was a good time to try.
    If it went wrong, the home owner is a monster of a size and his handshake would put you out of action on the brush for a week :biggrin:
    So it had to go well.

    Just a few photos as those who know, know the standard prep we all do on here :winky:

    In a few places, the homeowner had a mate around to do some filling for him. I'll let you tell me whether it is ok or not.

    I had to go around and rake out a lot of decorators caulk that had been applied over the finished paint. To be fair, I feel this was done to hide any cracks during the settlement stage of the building and was done by the previous owner.

    raking out the old knackered caulk.JPG caulk all raked out_thank goodness for packexe floor protection.JPG

    The loft hatch was a uPVC of some sort. I don't know the correct name for these types. Anyway, I didn't clean it down apart from a dust off. Then straight on with #Tikkurila Intact Primer. There was no separation or anything so obviously no contamination with any cleaners or such. Left it about two hours I think and tried a fingernail scratch - it was bonded on there for sure.
    No final photo but the Intact 8 took to the primer and no issues.

    intact primer adhered well to this upvc loft hatch.JPG

    Just so you know - The doors were not painted as they are being renewed in the not too distant future.
    Woodwork had a good mechanical prep with the RTS40 EQ and @Mirka UK (Ltd) #Abranet

    All areas that needed caulking up were caulked using Isomat #Isomastic A acrylic sealant from @MegMPB
    Have to say, no issues with it at all.

    Tikkurila Intact Primer on all woodwork, then filled using the 3M acryl putty in red. Light abrade and touch in 3M putty with Intact Primer and followed by two full coats of Intact 8.
    Lovely paint to apply and as someone here mentioned, feels absolutely smooth as.

    Bit of an issue,,, after a spot in over the 3M putty and the two full coats of Intact 8 I could still see the red bleeding through :smash:
    In some areas a touch up was needed and it touched in well on the architraves. But other areas on the broad sections of frames needed yet another touch up. So not too impressed over that.
    Next time I might fill first and then touch in etc. etc.

    Ceiling is in Anti Relex 2 - white. It is white.
    Walls are finished in Optiva 5 durable matt and the colour is Manor House Gray No.265
    I liked the Optiva 5 and would use it again for sure. But it is no Regal Select or Aura.

    @Packexe was used for the floor protection. Do you know? I am Packexe now on all jobs like this.
    I ran out and was awaiting a new roll for the carpet. I had a part roll of Toolstation carpet protector and using it made me realise how inferior and how awkward it was to use compared to the Packexe carpet protector.

    The masking tape of choice for the woodwork on this job was @decoratingdirect 's #fossa TrueMask 86. My oh my!!! :jiggin:

    For the craic... I applied some Intact 8 to some silicone around the front door frame (it was coming out anyway).
    Next day when I looked it was just flaking off like mad. So yes, as others have stated. There is no "give" in this paint whatsoever. So be very careful what you use it on folks. It does have a place out there for us, but not on anything flexible.
    I didn't use it on the kitchen after this h/s/l. I went back to trusty old @BenjaminMooreUK Aura :yes:

    Thank you chaps :doff:
    @Buckers Yes, you’re right sir. Though I did need to do an extra touch up over the 3M putty with the Aura too. So, it’s a rub, dust, 3M fill before any painting in future. Any missed dings will get a fine surface fill instead.

    Soon be Christmas :winky:

    3M Acryl Spot Putty.
    The red is best for slightly deeper fills :thumbup:
