Hi Robyn,
I’d head on down to a proper paint shop & ask some of the staff there.
Somewhere like Paint Spot or Haynes would probably be quite a good source of information.
Hope this helps :-)

After 40 hours strokes oil based enamel painted over previously varnished pine is still tacky.
I sanded the surface as per instructions and cleaned well, average temperature is around 22 degrees C.
Should I wait further or scrub off the paint and start again?

Sounds like it might have been applied a bit too thick but it's probably just a crap paint formula. I would wait until it fully dries before doing anything. I'm not sure, personally I stopped using White Knights when they moved production to China and changed the formula. Ever since they did that (without notice) I've stopped using it because it's total crap and we shouldn't have to pay the same price for this deceitful company to get away with it and profit from. Then we as workers have to spend all our time fixing our work because of their incompetence. I used the paint for over 10 years then had to stop because it just wouldn't work well enough for me since the change and was slowing me down. Don't buy it. And if you have some cans already take them back and demand a refund. It's the only way they will learn.

I think it is a bit of both. I put unit out in sun for a while and it did dry off. I put a second coat on and don't seem to have much control of thickness. Last time I will be using this product.

I applied on a slightly rusted security door screen previously painted. Before repainting, I brushed on White King Rust Remover. I waited 24 hour before I wiped clean, then I proceeded painting.

I have made a wooden carved jewelry box and have been experimenting with White Knight Super Gold pressure pack paint. I am very impressed with the result but I would like to coat it with a clear film paint because I have found the gold paint is very easy to scratch or wear away with handeking. Can you recommend a product which will not change the gold luster?

White Knight Super Gold won’t set well on anything - it just doesn’t. They do make an enamel paint that gives a similar efffect for small projects. However, if you need to use the spray I’ve got it to set and seal like this
1. Doing proper prep work: Lightly sanding, then vacuuming up wood filings and a wipe over using isopropyl. If metal using rust remover first.
2. Wood - using another spray paint as a primer - Kryolan 18ct Gold Spray paint 2 light coats gave the best results for me on wood and even plastic. Rustoleum Gold best on metal. Give each coat a day to dry.
3. Do 2-3 VERY light coats of the White Knight Gold. Leave 36 hours between coats and 72 after the final one.
Obviously this is a lot of effort and takes a week. Results were worth it for me - there’s no other true metallic paint like this. The above steps are enough for most items. If you want to you can use any brand of clear high gloss varnish or spray - I’ve used a bunch. You do lose some of the bright real metallic effect and it doesn’t seal all items. Plus sometimes it will make all the Super Gold literally melt away.

Can I use white knight tile and laminate on timber. I am painting the tiles and wooden cabinets and wondering if I can use the primer on both surfaces

you may get away with it on the laminate but I would use something specific for the wood, ensure you prime it well 1st

Emily Jane C.

You can if you play it safe
1. Rough up the surface by sanding, vacuum up after and use isopropyl to remove anything to prevent bonding
2. use another paint for wood and laminate as a primer. Rustoleum brand has never failed me in this. I always use a satin (not gloss) spray paint - white for colours and similar metallic for metallics. Repeat step one between coats only using two really fine sandpaper grades between each coat and leaving a day between coats. Don’t do it on rainy or really hot days.

White knight brand is the best colours but totally the worst to use.It’s not versatile at all without a lot of effort. It also doesn’t set well or seal without massive effort
