Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

Rubbing alcohol may work, but be SURE there is no oil or wintergreen fragrance in it - those work great for actually rubbing a person, but NOT for cleaning a screen before painting. For that reason I...

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

Yep, still here, but totally forgot to answer this. :gulp:

C&S Ultra is quite durable, but I would recommend wearing latex or nitrile gloves (or even clean cloth gloves) while hanging the screen...

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

As Mech says, it never hurts to prime before painting; but my understanding is that unpainted Sintra doesn't absolutely need to be primed first. If is not primed it should be cleaned with isopropyl...

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

Base 1 was the old Valspar, Base A is the new Valspar; they are basically the same so don't worry if you don't get Base 1 as it only means you are getting newer paint.

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

If you got the Valspar Ultra in flat it will still work fine unless you literally need all the gain you can get without hot spotting.

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

Valspar Ultra has replaced the Valspar Ultra Premium, and a finish called Super Flat has replaced the Flat Enamel, but it can be hard to find the Super Flat since I think Lowe's finally determined it...

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

OK, that is weird, the colors violet and magenta are not the same; magenta has both violet and red in it. :scratch:


That may work, but it's problematic getting true colors from a photo of a...

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

No problem, sorry I'm not on the forum as much as I used to be (I hope that will change soon).

The Behr #1850 is a manufacturer code for the paint that denotes the base color and finish all in...

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

No, the base for C&S Ultra needs to be as white as possible with just a hint of magenta added to give mix color neutrality after the Liquitex BASICS Silver is added.

The base color you want for...

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

A N9 that Home Depot can make is the True Value color "Winter Mist". Don't know if you can get the Behr #1850 in CA anymore or not, the last I heard people were having trouble.

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

The Behr #1850 paint used to be very close to the Valspar, but I don't think it is available in CA either! Drat! What latex paint brands are available to you? Please provide links to them if you can....

Re: Best N9 paint mix ?

Yes, C&S Ultra is one of the best high gain, wide viewing angle N9 solutions available. However, if time or money is short then a N9 Valspar paint in eggshell finish probably would be a close second...
