Paint is very thin
Used water based primer before and consistency was fine, but to stop water based stain, using this BP oil based primer now. problem is its very thin even after mixing it well. Its hard to handle because its dripping every where from the brush. Is this normal or this is one bad tin of paint? Thanks
It is good as long as the painters do a good job. I had to be at them every second, not to thin the paint out, paint with a bid more paint on the brush and roller etc.
Done all that, great paint to cover up mud stains.
Recommended as long as you keep an eye on the painters.
Outstanding oil-based primer
Nice self-levelling slow-drying old school oil based primer. Great results under Dulux Super Enamel as well. Much better than any other oil-based primer in your average hardware store. I used to always use Dulux oil-based primer under gloss finishes. Something changed with the formula about 5 years ago and it became gluggy to apply, it doesn't smooth well and tacks too fast.

I have outdoor bench which was varnished/gloss wood, do I lightly sand and use waterbased Prep 4 in 1 ?

Hi Colin, if you are looking at painting a previously varnished outdoor bench we would recommend removing the previous varnish by a thorough sand then use a primer (British Paints prep 4 in 1) you could go oil based for extra adhesion then 2 coats of British Paints exterior Paint and Prime - _ The British Paints Team
What life expectancy is it for a can of British Paints Prep 4 in 1 Water Based Multi Purpose as I have a can that is quite old on the bottom of the can is 02/08/12. It has not been opened and sounds as if it is ok. Would like your opinion prior to undercoating bathroom bits on a renovation I am doing.
