a word or warning i found this stuff terrible I did all my door frames and skirting but it always felt sticky. As a result dust would stick to it like i've never experienced before. This stuff is not oil based I don't believe, i ended up re-painting in Johnson's egg shell which is oil based but still doesnt give that gloss shine.

The regular or trade eggshell from Dulux is better than this stuff. I always do 2-3 coats on fresh wood or where I've stripped back to wood.

I sand between the coats, progressing through paper grades for a glass like non-sheen finish.

I think it was 120grit, 600 grit and 1200grit that I used last time.

1200 grit on skirting boards? My toilet paper is more coarse than that!

THATS BECAUSE YOU NEED TO USE GLOSS FOR A GLOSS FINISH🙄
Dulux trade satin is excellent oil based

120grit for the first coat, 600 grit for the second coat and 1200 for the third.

As stated, I was going for a smooth glass like finish and I achieved that with the above method.

It was on newell posts and square spindles for my stairs.

I had experimented with different grits to get the finish I wanted before doing the lot. It's only a waste if you don't achieve the desired outcome

I did the same mistake couple months ago.
Just few weeks ago I had to paint everything again as this shi*** paint stays sticky so it attracts dirt after short while.

Just use this instead.

It's water based but actually dries out rock hard and it's not yellowing one as well.
