Sherwin Williams Emerald
I am painting my whole house after a major addition and renovation. My contractor recommended using ProMar200 Zero VOC. When I went to the Sherwin Williams store, one of the colors we chose did not come in ProMar. The salesperson convinced me to use Emerald since I only needed two gallons. It was the most expensive paint I have ever purchased for walls. (I have used and had great success with ProClassic for trim which is roughly the same price )
I used the ProMar first in two rooms and LOVED it. It is really fantastic paint. I used the Emerald yesterday, I HATE it. It doesn't flow nicely, it doesn't level nicely, and it ran all over the place. I used the same roller covers and brushes (Purdy Golden Eagle and Purdy XL Glide) and the same technique. Why did I have such success with the ProMar and fail so badly with the Emerald?
