I am an adventurous fella and decided to try out some satin black house paint as I have read some of you guys do. Instead of a great, scuff free black, I got a very thin layer of orange peeley grey. No opacity and no thickness. What did I do wrong? I mixed it with some black I had lying around and it ended up going on really well.
I have a run of posters coming up that I have bought house paint for also and don't want them to go to waste. Have I read that I can mix house paint with Speedball Transparent Base (wallpaper pastey stuff) to give it some thickness? Or should I use the Extender Base (elmers gluey stuff)?
I know you say to add floetrol to help with the orange peeling, which I will gladly do on the color run. I was just surprised that the black was so thin.
I'm using 230-320 mesh and printing on non-coated stock (French) by the way.
