    Water based Paint for wood product review.

  • As Painters and Decorators we enjoy the privilege of trying new and innovative products that today’s very creative suppliers are so keen on throwing at us. Painting in Dublin recently had completed a project that had allowed us to thoroughly examine one not so new anymore product that is the water based paint for wood. In our case it was Dulux water based satinwood paint and undercoat.


    Usually we use oil based paint and particularly Dulux satinwood which is by far one of the best paint out there in terms of performance and application but this time we had to use water based because of the specifications of our client.

    The woodwork was to be painted from scratch and we began by treating the knots with knotting solution after which we primed the bare wood with water based undercoat and painted the lot with white water based satinwood. Quickly we realised that the coverage wasn’t great (and I’m being polite with these words) furthermore the application wasn’t any better either, it was difficult to apply and it dripped like there was no tomorrow. We kept going and revisiting areas that we had done previously to make sure we don’t leave drips behind only to realise that on top of everything this paint dried quicker not allowing us to rectify the drips if left a bit longer behind.

    We had to paint the woodwork four times and still it felt a bit translucent. They say this is the future of paint since it is supposed to be more environmentally friendly and does not dull or yellow as much as the oil based one but from a painter and decorator’s point of view it all seems a bit disappointing really. Had this job been done with oil based paint as usual it would’ve taken 2 coats of paint and the result would have been considerably better, let alone the amount of time that would have been saved as well.

    The oil based paint also smoothens itself a bit after application leaving a flawless result if applied by a good painter and decorator whereas the water based is prone to leaving more brush marks behind as it doesn’t smoothen further after application.


    It sounds like a good idea to use the less toxic water based paint for your woodwork but unless you have the patience and time as well as the experience of a professional painter and decorator, I would strongly recommend considering the oil based paint for wood.
