I use it on every bathroom I refinish. The very last procedure before painting is very crucial. WIPE DOWN WITH 91% ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL!!!
It’s just too thick of a coat with the shape of the sink and it’s consistency, I runs like crazy. Best best is to start over and do a extremely thin layer and keep doing thin thin layers.
Is it better to use the spray or the brush-on?
I refinished my garden tub and the stall shower and used the brush-on; I like it better as I feel I have more control with it. I think it came out pretty good, especially since I'm a novice. Good Luck!
Instructions stated not to use foam brush. I just finished my bathtub. I literally read the instructions 5x's. I primed w/Zinser123, only one coat AFTER I cleaned & sanded as per instructions. Let the primer dry 24 hrs, then painted.
The brushes you use + thin coats is everything. Allow proper dry time. Don't over brush, keep the brushes wet in the paint. Use fresh brushes for every coat. Mine came out close to perfect.
most always is best to spray a light "flash coat " initially.
It provides a "tooth" for the final heavier top coat to hold onto.
Looks like you didn’t prep the substrate properly, paint won’t adhere, did you etch the sink ? Etching after thorough cleaning helps to adhere better and have a fan aimed to the sink to dry every little spot to a tee , I normally roll the first coat, let it cure for one and half hour and second coat spray it, then if needed a third coat( depends on color change of tub tile or sink)
