Re: Latex primer on oiled wood?
- HI sorry I couldn't writ sooner.
Latex primer or a primer of any sort will stick to oiled wood providing many things are true.
1. The oil has fully cured, This could be any where from months to years. A rule of thumb would be get a clean white rag with mineral spirits on it. rub the finnish. If any of the oil comes off onto the rag it is not fully cured.
2. Clean thoroughly with denatured alchohol (beware of flames!) use a lot. Even if some of the oil is still soluable this could help the latex adhear better. Often Furniture wax and oils are pressent and need to be removed anyways.
3. Forget about using the latex as the first coat buy a quart of Shellac or shellac base primer. wipe or brush a coat over everything . Allow to dry 1 hour before painting with what ever you want.(most brands are dry in 15 minutes). Oils prefered, latex Okay
Note never use Thompsons weather seal or simular on anything you may want to stain or paint in the future, They contain a wax. Far more dificult to deal with than oils.
By the way if the oil is dry. Just wipe on a thin film of rustolium paint over the surface of your project. let it dry over night. Check for adheasion. It should be tight. Then brush on as usual with more rustolium oil base paint. Mix with artist oilpaints for tinting and special effects.
Write back if you need any help.
