Has anyone used either Hamilton Prep coat, or Hamilton Smooth coat before?

What is the difference? Can't get an answer at Home Hardware.

I've got sunlight on glossy paint when a door is opened, and the HO doesn't like what he sees. He's very....discerning.

What I would like to do is rough up the paint, coat the whole wall, sand, then repaint.

Can it be rolled on? It's a reno so there is furniture to trip over. But at least he has A/C!!!

Thanks in advance!

from bad to much much worse

Okay, sanded it with 150 lightly, rolled on thinned mud. The roller skipped in several places and wouldn't stick in others, so I do let it dry a bit before reapplying.
And then the paint began to bubble in four-five places!!!!
Cut the bubbles off, and it looks like the paint wasn't even stuck down.

Shoot me.

Would your HO accept a skip trowel or back trowel? both are quick and don't require a hopper and compressor.
