Leyland Trade High Gloss Paint Brilliant White 5Ltr
finally one that works
I previously used a Dulux paint which was like painting with milk!
I was advised to use an oil based gloss and this is what I bought.
It worked right from the start. I did read all the previous reviews so was fairly confident of good results

Bought this to try because I much prefer the oil-based gloss. This isn't too runny if your careful and not too slow with the brush. Applies well and looks brilliant. As long as your patient enough for the oil-based stuff to dry and cure and don't mind the smell for a couple of days then you can't go wrong with this stuff.

Good coverage and goes on easy. Used several brands of paint and this offers about the best value for money that I have found so far. Sure you can pay a higher price and get a better product but this for me this does the job well.

Poor paint - waste of time.
I have used other Leyland trade paints in the past and been very impressed. However this one is TERRIBLE - it has very poor opacity so you need at least 3 coats to give a properly white finish. It runs easily and quickly so you really need to watch it, which takes even more of your time. Not to mention the drying time takes an absolute age, at least 24 hours between coats.
It was used to paint clean and dry wood - shelves and skirting. On the corners which had been stuck together with no more nails (paintable) the paint did not stick at all and simply ran off. This left an ugly finish which highlighted the joints. I then keyed the joints again and repainted - the paint did not adhere. It has taken 3 coats so far and still the coverage is patchy. The way I look at is that 3 days of my life have been wasted struggling with a paint not fit for purposes. I hope others read this and think twice before choosing this option - life cannot be regained, don't waste your time.
The only positive is that this paint does give a nice mirror smooth finish with no brush strokes - but so will any other paint that takes 24hrs to dry.
