    Just wondered if anyone had used this product?

    I need to apply some touch ups on areas I missed.

    How can I get the paint to stick? It seems to run off atm
     
  2. It does bead up if leave too long between coats/wet weather. I just keep painting, it does cover eventually and don't let it dry completely between your coats. I think it says that on the tin?

    Yeah I did two coats on my railings but need to do some touch ups now that I didn’t notice when I finished.

    I haven't used garden shades, but shed and fence treatments that leave a waxy, water-repellent coating can be difficult to recoat once they've dried. You can see how good they are by throwing a bucket of water at the surface. It the water beads up and runs off, it's good; if the surface is wetted, it's due another treatment.

    I know two ways:

    1) Wait a year or so for the surface to weather

    2) Apply a fresh coat with a brush, rubbing it to and from along the grain until whatever the solvent is, softens the wax, and then you can recoat it because it has no longer "dried." On a hot sunny day this can happen even between coats.

  7. This is what I meant, kept painting until it takes, even with the beading (which disappears anyway) - providing I do the second coat before the first dries completely, it covers.
