    I am trying to bring back some door frames to life.

    I have given them a good sand down and have painted them.

    However I am now thinking they should be glossed to give them a really good finish.

    I primed them with Dulux Quick Dry Wood Primer 2 in 1. I thought this primer was quite good.

    I then used Dulux Satinwood as my top coat. I thought this paint was pretty poor. It seems to be quite watery and doesn't give the best finish.

    I have never used a gloss paint before, so wasn't sure my best option to go for.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Are you looking for water based or oil base gloss?

    My knowledge of different kinds of gloss is minimal.

    What would you recommend Astramax?

    The Dulux Satinwood, was it the water based one, if so you will get away with a quick light sand over and I would use Crown FastFlow Gloss straight on top of the Satinwood, two coats with a Purdy monarch brush will do the trick. Remember two tin coats is better than one thick coat.

    I think it must be water based.

    I will give that Crown Fast Flow a try.
