    I definitely want to try AZ, see how glossy I can get a front door.

    Actually, maybe Chris just Coverstained everthing and sprayed them with water for the photo, you never can tell, can you? :winky:

    Probably had the buffer going with some compound, and it's really Dulux blue lid! :hysterical:

    Well glossy is what glossy is but no matter the paint its even glossier when the Rotex 90 buffer hits it with some gloss care by festool aswell, i dont just look after the decoration i leave the customer with nothing to do but appreciate the finish and give me more work !, housework lol :winky:

    While everyone is in a sikkens mood I have a question. I can't get mythic, Annie Sloan or little green up here. The choice is dulux or crown and possibly sikkens for a price. The majority of my interior work people want eggshell/satin usually white, even though i prefer slightly off white.
    As I am trying to embrace the future and be prepared for the revolution, I want to start using a water based eggshell and wondered what you think of the sikkens Rubbol BL Satura and primer?
    I have used the oil based but it seems to take too long to dry.
