    Hello all, I'm getting fed up with the headaches i get from using oil based paint and am looking to make all interior painting water based, as far as possible. The thing I'm a bit stuck on is a water based gloss. Is there one out there that can compete with oil based? Thanks in advance

    I like Crown Fast Flow, it was recommended to me on here by Astramax I think

    Water based alkyd like fastflow (not used that one) be prepared to pay for quality paint though... Use correct undercoat and prepare properly. Needs to be clean surface and I always sand it to give a key...

    Sure was, Crown Trade FastFlow Gloss, use the primer/ undercoat followed by 2 top coats on previously painted timber, if new timber 2 undercoats followed by 2 top coats applied with good quality synthetic filament brushes or 4" felt, mohair or microfiber roller. (Purdy, Wooster, Hamilton brushes).
