Suffering from asthma, I've always liked the quick drying waterbased gloss
and satin paints from a "not nearly killing me" point - but for areas that
take a bit more wear and tear I've always until now suffered with the
normal smelly stuff which is much, much tougher and much much easier to get
a decent finish on.
However, having been impressed with the scrubability of the Dulux real life
Matt emulsions for removing kid hand prints etc it has been decided that I'll
be using the Dulux real life satin waterbased paint to do all the woodwork
in the hall, stairs and landing. This is fine for skirtings and things but
it's a real pain to get a decent finish on doors and larger areas as the
damn stuff dries so quickly!
Following some threads on here recently, I invested in some decent synthetic
brushes and yes, they are a lot better but I'm still pondering using a foam
roller to attack the doors. The tin just says apply with a brush and doesn't
mention rollers at all - has anyone on here tried it? With half decent results?
