I have Kilz original oil-base primer. Would this work ok under the proclassic? How long are you noticing it takes to cure? Thanks for your help!

Advance High Gloss is probably as good as anything that is available in your market. Shouldn’t need a primer as long as you scuff the existing (assuming waterbased) finish well, although primer can sometimes save you a bit of money per coat versus advance. If you have never sprayed, I wouldn’t recommend this as a maiden voyage. Tape is sufficient. Only other tips I would offer are that High Gloss is pretty tricky to work with, especially in deep base colors. Not sure what you have available for roller naps over there, but experiment with that before going full on into the project. High gloss will show every bit of lint that the roller sheds and every time you change direction and orientation.

I am a relatively novice painter (plenty of experience with basic water based emulsion (latex) on walls and brushed oil-based gloss on trim, so my basic technique is solid) looking to try to create the fashionable super-smooth high gloss/lacquer look on interior walls in a small bedroom, in a very dark colour (BM’s Essex Green looks good). The BM Advance (high gloss) is now available where I am (England), and appears to be a good choice for my occupied house due to low odour, and reports of excellent levelling to help with the finish. I am not overly concerned with dry and cure times as the room can remain uninhabited for a week or more if necessary. The walls are currently a white flat matt latex, four years since painted (new build), walls are in very good extremely smooth and flat condition. Priority is smoothness and perfection of finish on flat walls, and ease of application, speed is not so important. My questions are:

Is this something that sounds like a terrible idea?
Is the BM Advance High Gloss a good choice of paint?
Would a primer be required?
Would you recommend a spray application, and if so what type of sprayer?
Is tape sufficient where the walls meet the lower trim?
Any other advice and application tips would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

First part should read as follows: As far as I know, you can treat the Ben Moore Advance paint as a water based product– should be easy to paint over it without priming.

It’s waterborne alkyd. I don’t understand the chemistry of it, but understand it to be a water based product with oil qualities. Takes longer than oil to fully cure (3 weeks or more) but is as strong as oil products when it fully cures. Doesn’t yellow over time like oil products do. I’ve painted tons of cabinets with it and love it.

Really, any good quality primer will do. Ask your local independent retailer for a good quality primer. They’ll give you a good suggestion.
