Re-coating FPOE Door


Door was painting black brilliant about 10 years ago.
Anything special needed to prep?
Can I use a deglosser and then apply one coat or should I do two coats.
First time worki g with FPOE.

Thanks

If oil based paint and using the same color, sand with fine sandpaper and use a deglosser, then one coat it. If surface is water based paint, sand and one coat it.

Re: Re-coating FPOE Door


lol sorry. I just figured most painters were familiar with the brand, Fine Paints of Europe. I've never used it but all I hear is how difficult it is to work with. Not sure why. Guess I'm about to find out.

Caslon - I hope I can recreate that glossy finish with one coat. thanks

Ah! FPOE can also mean First Point of Entry (as meaning the front door to a residence)

Additional coats don't relate to glossy-ness, unless you want to go CSI at the paint film level.

A primer might soak up some of the top coat and cause less gloss, but not usually.

Re: Re-coating FPOE Door


I had to google for ten minutes to figure the mystery and made a risky guess. It was foreign , that much was true.
