Hello, I have read every post I could find on the subject but I still
have some questions. We have a 106 year old Queen Anne Victorian that
badly needs a paint job. We started the prep work this week. The
porch railing has been scraped and sanded but the wood looks very dry.
What I would like to do is use linseed oil on it, but if I get oil on
surfaces that still have good paint on the will my oil based primer
Also, I have read that all I need to prime are the bare spots on my
siding. I would prefer to put a coat of primer on everything, siding
trim and all. Is that ok?
The scraping is slow going, but I am leery of using a power washer.
I am worried about dry time now that the temps are in the 70s. What do
Any and all answers and suggestions appreciated.
