    Has anyone used this paint for cabinets? Quality, coverage, primer type?

    #2 47 days ago

    Montana makes great paint as does Molotow and Ironlak. They have ton of pigment so you don't need to spray heavy. I have found them to be compatible with most of the primers around if you need one.

    I am thinking of using an oil based primer on the cabinet, such as Zinnser. I've been using it for years for interior painting around the house.

    Montana is good paint most of it is like a semi flat though so you might have to play with a clear coat to get it to the desired sheen

    Molotow is the same, a bit on the satin side.

    Montana offers a clear varnish. Is this compatible with their "Gold" spray paint? What clear have people used in the past with great success?

    Clear lacquer would be my go-to if you have spray equipment. Not sure I'd want to try anything with "varnish" in the product name, due to potential yellowing of the application over time.

    Montana paints are what I use. Great pigment and almost impossible to get them to run. They work great with Pinball Pimp stencils.

    They will come out matte. I use Minwax polycrylic semi gloss to even the sheen and smooth the finish. Works great.

    I did my Quicksilver build cab with Montana gold cans. Be sure to change up the caps to get your desired spray, the included cap is very low flow and makes a base coat difficult to get even. That said, overall MUCH better than the Rustoleum I used on my old Black Jack. If you don’t have spray equipment and don’t want any (like me), I’d recommend them.

    Now, I also tried to use the spray varnish (based on all reviews and their own statements, it is non-yellowing) and again, an even coat was a total pain in the ass. After 6 cans, I kind of gave up and declared “it is what it is”

    I have my first coat of base color down on the cabinet. I did purchase several #5, and #6 caps which give an amazing high rate of volume coverage. I will apply the second coat today to level and fill it in. I am very apprehensive in applying a clear coat product due to what was mentioned earlier, and how the quality of rattle can coverage is. I too have had similar problems with Rustoleum clear in the past. You can't get a flat finish on such a large area.
    I am happy with the pigment of this paint. I do see the caps get build up while spraying though. One video recommends placing your finger at the rear of the cap, rather than directly on center. Just something to be aware of.

    #12 7 days ago

    I find the caps retain a lot off build up as shown. Am I at fault for this? Cans shaken for 5 minutes, paint applied at 12" from surface. I tried the single can method and wasn't crazy about the look on the long panels of the cab. So I tried the 2 can method and same occurred.
    The 2 can method I found on youtube. Holding 2 cans with hands against each other with slightly different angle.

    Does the Polycrillic Semi help flatten out this area?

    OK, second coat was applied today and the frustration level is building. Can someone tell me why in some areas the paint has this sand like texture, and smooth in others? I'll have to let this sit for a week and lightly try to sand it out with 400 grit.

    Again, cans are shaken for 5 minutes prior to application. Area was smooth prior to second coat. #4 Montana cap used for 2nd coat.

    Looks like application reaction. We're you within the guidelines for re-application? Each product is a little different but it is typically within the first hour or after 48 hours.

    The can doesn't state re-application times, but says completely cured in 6-8 hours. I waited several days to apply the second coat.

    Make sure you are not spraying too far away so the solvent doesn’t evaporate.

    I do one application. Light coat wait 5 minutes. Medium coat wait 5 minutes. Last coat if needed — done. No sanding.

    You want enough paint so it smooths out but not too much so it runs.

    Also — what is your technique? Always maintain a wet edge with 50% overlap as you go.

    I had the same issue. The Montana paints are great but they dry really fast. If you are too far away when spraying you’ll get the sandy texture.
    I now spray about 6 inches away and do several light coats and haven’t had any problems.

    My first coat was to cover entire surface with 50% overlap. I kept the can 12" away form the surface, which after reading the comments, may be the issue I have. The paint is drying too quickly without enough coverage.
    Second coat the same, but with the idea to completely level out the area.
    I will change up my approach and apply several coats minutes apart as you stated.
    Thank you very much for your input.

    Thanks, will try that next.

    6" away for best results... gotta keep that spray nozzle moving though!!!

    Thanks to dr_nybble, Vandy89, and Dono. I sanded down the cabinet and re-applied the top coat as instructed. I am very happy with the results. I used the #6 cap they offer which provides maximum coverage. Now onto paint splatter.
