I am thinking about trying Scuff X Satin or Advance Satin for the woodwork in my home but it seems BM don't do a Brilliant White. Anyone who uses it on here, which white did you choose please?

I thought Chantilly Lace was their purest white. The PM-1/OC-152 is in their 'off white' range.
Chantilly lace is the whitest. I always get that

Thanks everyone. Bit overwhelmed by all the whites to be honest after going down a YouTube rabbit hole :LOL:.

Yes seems Chantilly Lace is the whitest they do. I am leaning towards that but also Simply White as it seems it is a bit softer as it has a hint of yellow?

Wayners, have you used the Scuff X paint? If so was wondering how visible the brush marks are with it?
There are 7 whites available.

Yes I've used scuff-x. I mostly use mini roller or hvlp sprayer. It's a great paint

Like the original poster of this thread I'm thinking of doing my woodwork in Scuff-x Satin, but can't decide which white to go for between Chantilly Lace or Super White.

Are you getting good coverage with the Chantilly Lace Scuff-x?

I'm asking because I've read a few comments under a couple of Youtube videos that suggests Chantilly Lace doesn't cover as well as the Super White. Here is an example

Thanks in advance

I don't have Super White to compare to but for what its worth I would agree that the coverage didn't seem great compared to other paints I have used in my limited experience being a DIYer. I did 1 coat of Zinsser Bullseye 123 and 2 coats of Chantilly Lace in the end. I have read some people saying you can just do 2 coats of Scuff X but personally don't think it would cover well enough.

But I am really happy with the colour of Chantilly Lace and the finish of Scuff X so I am happy to to do the 3 coats total.
Always undercoat to kill background colour.
One undercoat and 2 top coats. Coverage is not a problem if you prepare properly
