That was the plan until today... I ran into a faux finish expert. He told me to use water-based primer (Zinseer Bullseye or Kilz Premium). Also, only one coat of primer, one coat of topcoat, then glaze and two coats of water-based varnish.
Is one coat of primer enough? I was told that if the varnish were sanded off, the stain can bleed through to the top coat. So, isn't two coats (or more) of primer neccessary?
He also told me there is no need to sand inbetween any coats (other than sanding the corners and the trims to create the distress look). Is that true?
I saw the finish product he did. It looks great. Only one coat of primer and one coat of topcoat? Is it because it's the distress look, so that one coat of topcoat is enough?
thx in advance.
