Not good, in my experience and way over priced

There are lots of DIY painters on the Home Decorating forum. You might want to ask over there as well.

Hey Chris!

Yes I have. "Brittany Blue" #SS26) from the Sea & Sky collection a few years ago (Eggshell Deeptone base).
Also "Cottonwood" #TH29 (a HUGELY popular Beige).
ICI was still the owning/Mfg. company.
Now of course it's been Akzo-Nobel.

I LOVE the way it goes on. It's actually my fave to apply.
C2 is a very close 2nd.

We get no complaints about it, and we also STRESS application/tinted-priming cautions with most Neutral/Accent colors, no matter the brand.

$$Sales-wise, it keeps going up!

So its best to still use a primer even if its a neutral color? Im going to use Sisal (neutral beige). How many coats of paint do you think I will need to do? I had the sample paint I purchased the other day mixed and today I opened the can and there was so much of a watery substance on top it was like nothing I have ever seen before and I have used Sherwin Williams paints, Ben Moore, Glidden and Behr paints before. I know all paints are a big watery on top after being mixed but I needed to take a paint stick and mix it around for about 5 minutes before it even thickened a little. It went on very thin- even after 2 coats I can still see through it. Is this normal? Not impressed so far. Im wondering if another company can color match it to another type of paint but I dont want to change the color too much.

Faron, if it works for you, that's great. Me, I have never had any good times with it, so I just don't use it any more
