    Zinsser Perma-White

    Anyone used this stuff? I bought some matt white perma-white to do a plastered ceiling recently.

    It says it needs priming, so I did a first layer of Zinsser Bin. I have now done two layers of the perma-white as well, but it still looks patchy, so I will have to do another coat.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Was it lime plaster or the regular stuff? On the whole I find Zinsser stuff good to use and effective. Maybe a coat of Dulux primer sealer first would have been better?

      Thanks Interlaken. Normal plaster as far I know. I'll do another coat on Wednesday, and see how it looks. Don't you find Zinsser rather runny?

        Sounds odd. Zinsser is brill. Is it possible someone has watered your tin down?

          Thanks Claymore. Maybe before I got it. Perhaps that would explain the runniness.

            I have not known Zinsser to be runny.

            It is suprising what mischief people can get up to in DIY stores - buy a product - open carefully - use a bit of the product, top it up with a little water, reseal then take back for an exchange or refund.

              Zinsser B-I-N is definitely runny. Very. Don't know about this other product.

                Zinsser Permawhite is the biz for bathrooms. It shouldn't be particularly runny, though.Perhaps slightly more runny than Little Greene Intellimatt but the same as most retail emulsion. Did you stir the tin well first?

                Also, it only needs a primer if the surface is bare plaster. Or a very dark colour perhaps. Otherwise just apply two even coats and the job's done.

                It can be tinted to virtually any pastel shade, as well.

                  I hate to state the obvious but did you stir the tin thoroughly JKO?

                    I have today...

                    I just shook it before, as it said to shake or stir well. Third coat went on today and now looks good. It was bare plaster.

                    Thanks for your help everyone.
