> Don, your comment about old-time painters saying always use oilbased primer for latex top coats....I had the same feedback as you
from older painters.
The bias in favor of oil paint on the part of "old-time painters" is
very strong, but the paint makers (who test their products
scientificaly) thing the current latex paints are better, at least
for houses. I think the painters must have tried the first latex
paints back in the '50's or whenever, and formed their opinion then.
The government has applied strong pressure to reduce the use of
organic solvents, of course.
From the environmental/safety point of view, the modern world seem to
be dividing between the very safe latex paint, and the positively
poisonous like AllGrip.
