I used the last of a tin of oil based paint to put the first coat on an
interior (bathroom) door. I used quick drying for the next coat without
realising this is water based (yes, I'm that crap).
Is this going to be a problem?
>> It isn't going to explode is it!
With my diy 'skills' I wouldn't be surprised :-)
I was just worried about peeling etc.
Is there any disadvantage to using water based paint indoors on doors
and radiators etc?
Well - chances are your car paint is water based. If that hasn't exploded,
I reckon your door will be ok. Certainly, we've done our internal doors
with water-based undercoat and oil-based top. No probs so far.
I've no personal experience, but it sounds logical. I'm not sure how many
manufacturers are using water-based for all coats - I think some started
using water-based final coats, and are gradually working their way through
the under- & primer- coats.
Sorry to be vague - others here are bound to know more.
A small update - I've just been told that all the paint on the (BMW) Mini is
water-based, and my mole also believes virtually all UK manufacturers are
now using water based. Sorry that still doesn't answer your question about
thinners and cleaning the gun... :-(
I've heard that too. I've also heard that it isn't as good as a paint
as the old oil-based stuff, but it's far better for the environment.
I'm still going to use 2-pot on my boat though. The last lot has lasted
getting on for 10 years.
