Am planning on using this in my new house
I want a really decent one which is nice and strong and really holds things withought being lumpy
Any one got experience of brands and has one they can recommend?
Can't remember what sort we used, but definitely apply it with a roller (or possibly one of those foam brush things) rather than an ordinary paintbrush - it looks much better and more even (and when it's more even, the magnets hold better).
I think the more coats you do, the better things will stick. I did 2 coats, and the ones I did downstairs in the study with a roller work OK, but not so well upstairs in DD's room, which I did with a brush.
thanks for the tips
Yes i did wonder about a few coats- that roller tip is an idea as well
does it look lumpy Jackie?
Twig its paint that you put under emulsion and then you can put magnets on your wall
Yes, it is a bit lumpy. Even in the study, where I put it on with a roller, and so it's more even, it still looks a bit like artex or something. We put a frame round the bit we'd painted with some mouldings, which means that it doesn't look so strange, but haven't done that in DD's room. You also need to give it a really, really good stir before you start painting - I guess basically it's paint with a load of iron filings in, and they do sink to the bottom.
