I’m repainting my old oak dark stained kitchen cabinets. After 1 coat of Insl-X Stix primer, and 2 coasts of Cabinet Coat paint, I am getting bleed through on certain areas of the style profile, and where the style profile meets the panel. The guys at my local Benjamin Moore dealer said they never saw stain bleed through like that after 3/4 coats, only with Tannin’s.
They recommended I use Zinsser’s Allprime Shellac-Based Primer Stain Blocker. I’m curious how bad this stuff smells and how long it lingers after the painting is done? I’m debating if I should paint them outside in the day, and then carry into my basement at night, or leave them in my detached garage. The detached garage may be the best bet.
The bleed through didn’t happen on the frame boxes, only in 1 small area, but is happening as described on the door style profiles. I have more frame boxes to paint and was considering using this Shellac, but i’m afraid the smell may be too much. I could paint in the morning but the babies arrive back home in the afternoon, will it still smell too strong after only 5-6 hours of dry time?
Some general questions for anyone that knows the product well.
My very first time using an HVLP and I must say, the paint laid out incredibly well and looks nearly factory. I did a test door where I laid it on thick and I nearly eliminated all of the deep grain, incredible. Glad I took the chance with the HVLP, it will definitely speed up the topcoating process.
