Armstead Quick Dry Gloss Review
By Daniel Wilson
My Customer supplied this Armstead QD gloss. Normally, 95% of the time I use water based anyway, so I thought it was going to be ok.
I Primed the trim, which had been previously coated with oil, using otex akva. I applied 2 coats of the Armstead using a good Purdy.
I must say, this is the worst water-based gloss I have ever used. I tried the usual trick of adding floetrol, water etc. But the brush marks are terrible, the viscosity and opacity are bad. It is like applying vinyl silk. In fact, I think that may be better.
This is one paint I will be not using again.
This the same stuff but sprayed
Adding water has the opposite effect in water-based paints, makes it dry faster and leaves more brush marks 👍
I’ve had good results using a fossa viper with it
