  • Eccellent primer, but not very 'silvery'

    Pros:  good coverage, goes on evenly, cleaning brushes is surprisingly easy, good if you want a flat mat grey finish
    Cons:  not 'shiny' aluminium

    "I bought a tin of this stuff to paint over a wall I wanted to be silver coloured – unfortunately although it may indeed contain a substantial amount of aluminium powder, it assumes the colour and texture I could best describe as ‘battleship grey’. The paint itself is excellent – it needed quite a bit of stirring to get the aluminium particles into suspension, but it went on fine with a 4” roller. The texture was very even, and minor irregularities were quickly covered up. In drying, it provided a perfectly even mat finish, it was especially good at covering up a couple of hairline cracks. The paint looked especially dark when applying, but lightened up when dried. The product notes suggested it would be quite ‘stinky’ but I didn’t find that to be the case, it was no worse than many other oil based paints I’ve used in the past. Cleaning the brush and roller was pretty straightforward – after wiping the excess off on a kitchen towel, cleaning off with turpentine substitute and then washing off with a well known brand of washing powder they were as clean as ever. I’ve still got half a tin of the stuff left over, and will probably use it on a wooden garage door, it’ll be a delight to use, but as I mentioned in the opening paragraph, if you want to paint something silver – pick another product. Overall, as a primer for wood, you would be hard pressed to find a better product, just don’t expect it to be ‘shiny’. On the bright side, I have an excellent surface for painting over if I can find a half decnt silver metallic paint."

  • Excellent sealer/primer

    Pros:  great sealer/primer
    Cons:  silver coloured

    "I have been using this paint for the last 12 months. It is a good resin sealer and seems to work on existing paint where the resin has already bled through. (I guess that a previous DIYer/builder didn't knot the wood!) One point to be aware of is that this paint is aluminium colour, i.e. silver ... and it dries darker than it first looks. You will need at least two top coats to cover it."
