Has anyone here actually used wil-bond / wilbond in painting?
I want to paint over some semi-gloss trim and walls and was dreading
the sanding step when I read that this product was available.
Is it really a timesaver?
Was the bond between paint layers all that you wanted it to be?
I also read a post where you could put it into the paint being
applied...under what circumstances would you do that?
I have used another brand of paint prep/ deglosser, but don't recall the
brand. I think they have acetone or other carcinogenic solvents that etch
the surface of the semi-gloss, providing a rougher base for topcoats to
adhere to. Must use lots of ventilation, or mask.
Remember, alkyd over alkyd or acrylic paint just needs TSP cleaning,
rinsing, and light sanding, if you dont want to use deglosser. Acrylic over
alkyd is possible, but needs roughed up surface, and intervening primer.
Once you take a sniff of the deglosser, you may opt for sanding. BTW only
light sanding is needed.
I went to the paint store and the guy there said "not" to bother

dish washing liquid or tsp when I went in to get a paint chip. Did I

When I went home DH was sanding the crown molding and thought this was
Will washing the wall with dish washing liquid make the surface bond
to the paint or do I need to keep sanding?
If sanding must proceed, what type of sandpaper do the rest of you use
for curved painted surfaces? Sandpaper seems to be knocking off some
edges and sanding sponges seem to give out really fast!
I just don't see how it will be possible to even "lightly sand" in the
