Warnex paint - application is everything
UK Beachboys 24.05.2020
The paint does the job IF you apply it correctly. For touch ups it works well with a stipple application. To get the prickly, textured finish you need to work harder. Clearly spraying, and lots of paint quantity is the best. Roller application works pretty well, but best results are from a pre-coat if the timber is grained like plywood. Direct rolling onto bare ply can be a bit patchy. A overall thing hand brushed coat that just covers first is best. This will seal and fill most of the small voids or grain . Then a rolling with a foam roller, not the softer slightly hairy brushed. The foam rollers are quite stiff, instead of being soft, and if you use the narrower ones you can stick a decent amount of paint down on the first pass, then do a slightly lighter roll that picks up the surface and leaves the texture. You can get a really good finish if you do this - BUT - be aware you will use a LOT of paint. It goes down very quickly. it dries fast normally, but if you use it outside on a sunny day it dries too quickly and it's difficult to not get a patchy result. I have not tried using it in the cold. It is very thick and sticky paint, and while being water soluble for cleaning, it relies on the brushes and rollers being wet - and as soon as they have started to dry, you won't get them clean, so use cheap brushes and rollers and throw them away. Small point but if you have can in the workshop to use as touch ups as I do, be aware the can is quite thin and repeated opening and closing can leave gaps int he seal and this paint goes off very quickly if air gets to it.


great alternative to duratex

Recommended for diy projects or if in need of touching up an old cabinet.
With some patient and several thin layers it is easy to get a professional look.
Don't leave a box open for to long though as the paint will dry up quickly.
It's quite expensive so every drop is precious !


Monitor refurbishment

I bought this product to refurbish my Martin LE400C monitors. If you follow the spaying instructions on the Warnex website, you can achieve a very good finish which is as good as the original. Great product.


Good quality paint.

Good price point for the amount of paint received.
Covers very well and colour is very matte.
Recommend making sure surfaces are very well prepared before painting.

As a water based paint you can use with a roller, brush or spray system without many issues. For best results i found applying a base coat with thick coats over the top after suitable time gaps for drying time then leave to harden for a few days after the last coat.
Use a textured roller or spatter setting on a spray to get that recognised 'pro' type finish.

Note; this paint doesn't always take to some fillers or paints if done straight over the top. Some watered down pvc glue or primer can help in this instance.

As a water based paint it's not as toxic as 2 packs but still use in a ventilated area, needs to also be used and kept at room temperature. Easily washes off clothes and surfaces with water when still wet.

Overall if you are looking for a cheaper, easy way to paint or repaint some speakers then this is great value. Just don't expect it to have the hard wearing qualities of the 2 pack paints.
