Follow on from Wesley Knight’s recommendation. I’ll try anything “once” so gave the Ronseal Primer Undercoat a whirl.

Available online, Ronseal Wood Primer Undercoat is a water-based primer used on internal woodwork. You can use it on bare timber, or previously painted. Tin sizes are 1L, 2.5L and 5L. Drying time is a couple of hours, but leave it three or four hours before recoating if you have used it on previously painted surfaces.

Got to say this paint is great! Brushed the windows and the opacity is as good as, if not better than the Jonnos Aqua undercoat I normally use, except it doesn’t ruin your brushes.


Then I sprayed it… and I can honestly say it’s as nice to spray as Tikkurila’s products and it’s absolutely solid. I’ve always used Joncryl to spray or Aqua by brush. This stuff cuts out the complication of needing multiple products for the best results.

I was honestly surprised at the quality of Ronseal One Coat Wood Primer. As a decorator, I’m programmed to avoid retail products, but this is as good as any trade primer on the market.
