Re: Orangery Blues.

Yes, might have a google of your Valtti paint. Pretty sure I might have used the Jotun Visir oil based primer but the Demidekk is WB so that softened and the sealant underneath too. Amazing how this condensation gets under everything as on the bottom glazing bar i was using the Soudal Sealant which ...

Orangery Blues.

Hi, I have a big old Orangery to paint inside and out. The big doors were done in summer of last year, inside and out. The problem is I used some good quality w/b paint (Jotun I think) and I use sealant between the glass and putty. The Orangery is dug out of a hill and the floors are flagstone so it...

Re: Linseed Oil Paint- Pants??

Sorry, didn't get an email about your Post.
It is oil based this Marine Paint and it goes off so quick too so pretty good for not getting caught by a passing rain shower when you get home from work; hate that. Interesting about the VOC regs on this paint. Good point.

Re: Linseed Oil Paint- Pants??

Those Dutch are good at the paint :good.gif: . I asked Potmolem Paint, Warminster to see if they could get some as they import the Dutch Sikkens but they haven't got back yet. Think it's Dulux trying to wipe out Sikkens as they're the same lot; Akzo. Seems in Europe, Sikkens is still a strong compan...

Re: Linseed Oil Paint- Pants??

Thanks for that. I once was provided with Led based paint and it didn't do that well so not sure if it was the real McCoy or not. It was quite a thin paint. The Sikkens SD (not defunked) did amazingly well there. XD not quite doing the same these days. Crap wood is definitely a feature these days an...

Linseed Oil Paint- Pants??

Hi Been doing some Googling and seen some good things on Linseed Oil paint; Allback seems to be the chosen one on the net. I think I have tried some Long Oil Paint before and can't remember the results which usually is not a good sign. I test paints at home with lengths of painted wood and labelled ...

Re: Snowcem- Patchy on damp/wet walls

Thanks, I have tried Kiem and managed to have big algal blobs growing on it within weeks of painting an old wet wall. I had bleached the wall prior to painting and the paint company were ok about this. Also salts came through too. :p I'll have to google your stuff, sounds good. The smowcem gets effe...

Snowcem- Patchy on damp/wet walls

HI I managed to get my hands on a big bag of Snowcem and had a few jobs where there is extensive damp in the walls. I have seen when it rains and the wall gets wet, the colour darkens. When the wall dries, the wall colour looks patchy with the pre-existing dampness in the walls. I know this paint is...
