Old curved staircase baseboard trim is readying for paint.
It was a transplant from an old victorian removed in pieces and placed together in it’s new location so there were plenty of cracks, gaps, chips and seams.
Abatron takes care of the bulk of the imperfections but was wondering if there is a recommended easily sanded primer for hairline cracks as found in an old dried oilbase paint surface?
damn, am I fat!
I like Zinsser's shellac-based primer. It sticks to anything, anything sticks to it, sands easily and has a lot of bulk. Its drawback is that it dries soooo quickly it doesn't flow out much.
I've never run across a paint to fill a crack
reality has yet to coincide w/ propoganda claimssituations similar to yours I'd opt for hot mud say 20 minute stuff and finger it in and by the time you are at that last step it will be ready for sanding where you startedthen best you could do is use a good oil undercoater
