Painting over blueboard
Use a high quality primer - like Glidden Ultra-Hide Gripper.
Topcoat with a Glidden topcoat of your choice - Evermore/Ultra-Hide/Ralph Lauren
All are available at The Home Depot
Hope everyone had a great weekend.
The reason I recommend THD a lot is because they are about everywhere in the country - everyone knows them. ICI Paint Stores are not everywhere - so recommending a product from them won't help some people.
Also, the line of products that Glidden has at THD is really great - quality and value. I will agree that sometimes their service and advice leaves something to be desired - but that doesn't stop me from recommending them.
As for Hirshfields?? I have never heard of them - I was going to ask you who they are - as I have seen you mention them before.
By the way - you do give good advice - It is good to see more good advice on the boards!
Hirshfields is like a Sherwin Williams,kinda made for paint contractors and such.When I 1st got into this I quit my machinist job and started painting,let's just say I learned thru school of hard knocks.My local hirshfields rep worked for another supply company then went on his own and didn't like this so hirshfields offered him his own store and ive been following him.For he stuck with me when i'd come to him with the stupidist of questions.I have a home depot too,I liked their product but just so much easier for me to get all things in 1 place.
My tips,lacq,plastic,all supply's and sometimes HD won't have it so time is $$ and I hate running around I do this enough meeting with contractor's owner's,picking up supply's for my guys.
Gotta get ready for the day.Wish they had a chat board here on Bob Vila.
