i did not have success using river rock and want to paint over it. The person at the paint counter told me I must prime it with a special primer so the new paint will not peel off. Is this true??? Can I just paint over it. I would still like to maintain the texture.

So what kind of special primer did they say you need to use?

You have two options:

1. You can apply another coat of RR with a brush - this is the same as the second coat of the Suede technique - and the finished result will look very much like Suede. This will also hide any lap marks (you didn't indicate what you problem was with the finish - so I assume lap marks - that is the most common complaint with RR)

If you would like to do this I recommend getting an instructional DVD from the retailer (they are free)...calling 1-800-379-POLO to have one sent to you...or go to RLHOME.POLO.COM...and view the video on applying the techniques there.

2. You can prime over RR with Glidden Gripper (#3210-1200) then apply two coats of RL Paint in your choice of finish. You will lose the textured finish with this option though. If you choose this option you can call the 800 number above to get a RL Paint color close to your RR color - so at least you will have a similar color.
