Is this paint sandable? What is the protocol? Thanks!

Asked by: Mc
Hi Mc! Great question. Although it's not necessary to sand between coats, it would be okay to do so if you are experienced with the technique. Nevertheless, the Alkyd paint is known for it's exceptional flow and leveling, so I think you'll be happy with the finish. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

Does this paint work with a HVLP sprayer?

Asked by: Gadget
I spray this paint all the time for cabinets and trim. It is the best paint that I have found. I thin it about 10% and put on 3 coats over top of 2 coats of BIN shellac primer.

Can I order the base color and have this paint mixed in the local store to any color I chose?

Asked by: chris
Not really. I WOULD check to see if they have color chis in-store though as the color I picked out was bluer in 'real life' than it was on my computer - no one's fault, just the way it is. They do not carry this paint in-store at all.

1-gal. #AE-4 Pecan Brown Semi-Gloss Enamel Alkyd Interior/Exterior Paint is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst paint ever I have been using Behr paint for over 30 years now and love it. That is until I bought this alkyd paint. This paint was a nightmare.I messed with it for about 6 weeks painting a few pieces of wood. and the paint would not dry. After 4 weeks it was still tacky. I even used a fan for several days on it to help dry.My family called it the paint from ? . Bought a second can and had the same issue. The humidity level was also low. I wasted about 5 hours on a can of this paint including prepping and using Behr oil based paint which turned out great. This paint should be pulled off the shelves.

I have used this as ceiling paint in two rooms so far. Love it. Dry time was 2 hours, although I waited 4 hrs for second coat; it's two-coat coverage; and it has a tough, shiny semi-gloss finish. Noticeably tougher finish than regular enamel. Water cleanup is easy, too. I bought one can to see if I liked it. I need to do two more ceilings, and I'm going back to HD for more of this stuff. That's the best testimonial I can give ANY product.

I bought the best brush and the ultra fine finish roller and am attempting to paint my doors at this time. Each time I coat it I get brush or roller marks. I sanded them out smooth and re-coat with the same results. I also tried rubbing them out with Pumice and Rottenstone. Neither of these worked. In the past I have made many cabinets and have always got a high grade finish. with these techniques. YOU just can't beat good oil based paints for high quality finishes.

This paint created a finish on my old wood/veneer combo cabinet that looked like it had come from the factory. The first coat seemed streaky, but after the second coat, I was completely satisfied! The paint is smooth and easily adheres to a clean surface. The color is excellent--true to the picture and modern. I would definitely recommend not judging this paint by the first coat. The second coat completely changed the look of it, and I ended up only needing those two coats to get the finish I hoped to get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Paint We used this to paint our kitchen cabinets and love the way the paint applied and looked after drying. The Behr representative recommended this product and we couldn't be more pleased. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from i want to love this paint I really want to love this paint it does go on well but it has been 3 weeks and still not dry, i really think it has to do with how humid it is in your house. I called behr and they said to wipe down with a mild detergent and that helped some but still tacky. Hope it dries i dont want to redo cabinets i spent days sanding down to bare wood and applying 2 coats of oil base primer.

As other reviews have said - decent paint but is not a substitute for a quality Oil based Enamel. Never really dries and it is not hard to the touch, feels soft and tacky even weeks later. No problems with coverage or application just hard to sand and stays "rubbery". Every easily marked with scratch or finger nail. Don't Uses on cabinets.

I used this to paint ~500 ft of new polyurethane crown molding and it did a great job. This after I tried Valspar and the regular Behr semi-gloss, neither of which flattened out or covered well after two coats. The Valspar Signature was awful. The Alkyd paint covered well with no brush marks.
