> Ralph Lauren Paint Help by Handyman on 10/27/2004

Sorry to hear all of the negative comments,
and will take them under advisement. As a
professional decorative artist, I've had the most
luck (excellent actually) using the paint on
furniture - very thick, and rubs back nicely for
a distressed finish (not great if that's not what
you're looking for!!...) Used it in my airless
paint sprayer, and it needs to be thinned quite a
bit, but the result is good with thin, even coats.
At smaller paint stores, the cost is prohibitive -
at Home Depot, it's competetive. Most pro house
painters I know charge extra to use even the basic
Lauren Latex, and most everyone recommends taking the
paint chip you're in love with to the nearest computer
matching paint mixer!
While I have not used the specialty finish paints, the
roller brushes did appear lightweight., and the "checking"
rollers can be found at 1/2 the cost in larger craft stores.
The "deal" is with the stippler brush, which at pro
paint wholesalers goes for twice the amount (+-$100.00)
The quality of the brush seems to be okay.
Was about to spring for the crackle medium, but after
this may just stick with hide glue!
I have used the flat latex to "wash" with and also for
a high end cloud application. I applied a wallpaper
border over top, but then again it was not the specialty
finish. Good luck to all!
