Re: Interior painting time!
Update: In between my calling the paint shop to complain about it, and me getting around to returning the paint, there was a recall issued for the exact issue I had. They replaced my paint with paint from a different batch which did a lot better. Still not perfect though.
Guess they're still working the bugs out, not sure if it was worth the extra expense over the 100% acrylic water based kitchen and bath paint at almost triple the cost... Hopefully it lasts well, I don't want to do this again, a frustrating experience after spending the extra money but it looks pretty reasonable now. It seems to have dried quite hard and is more even at least.
EDIT: Shouldn't type late at night, extra expense over not OF. If I were doing it again, or recommending it to someone else, I'd go with a 100% acrylic kitchen and bath, or an alkyd exterior with mildew resistance if you can still find it in your area. The new hybrid paints seem like they'll be good, but the consistency and reliability just aren't there yet, and it's not a fun project to re-do.
