One Coat or Two?

Thoughts From Shawn Suby, Allied Member ASID
Baby Supermallís Professional Designer

"Mythic™ paint is high performance, premium quality paint. Its coverage ability is better than or equal to any paint you have ever used. In most situations involving painting over a previously painted surface, one coat of Mythic™ paint should give sufficient coverage. Simply assure that the surface is properly prepared (make sure the surface is clean, oil and grease-free, and dry; and "degloss" all glossy surfaces on existing paint finishes) and the paint is applied consistently at the recommended rate.

"However, as with any other paint, I recommend two coats for almost all situations. Two coats will provide the most uniform appearance, is much more forgiving of any inconsistencies in the rate of application, and will leave a painted surface that will hold up very well for many years. For a relatively small investment of time (since most of your time is often spent preparing the room and the surface for painting, not the painting itself) you will achieve professional-looking results."
