Oh woe is me!! behr hi-gloss latex
I have a red semi-gloss small bathroom that I'm repainting in a deeper red using high gloss. I washed the walls, sanded, and put on one coat (so far) of a Behr High Gloss red.
I used the technigue of cutting in the edges and then rolling the rest of the wall but I've gotten horrible overlap and brush marks. I'm going to put on another coat (after I sand with 600) but have a couple of questions:
1. If I need a third coat, I won't have enough paint. Should I buy another can of Behr or should I do the final coat with a better brand (BM Advance?), using a close color. Will I be defeating the whole idea of getting a deep saturated color and have to put 2 coats on of the new color?
2. Should I cut in edges or paint the whole wall with a brush to get more even coverage?
3. Can I, should I use Floetrol on walls?
4. I used a low nap roller but think even that was too deep/thick. If I use a roller, what kind should I be using?
All I want is a shocking red, glossy wall. I'm not too concerned with bumps or imperfections showing as it's an old house. I did the best I could with sanding the surface.
