Acrylic paint over oil-based primer?
whitek12
February 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am painting the trim in my new house white. It has a pretty hefty coat of varnish on it so I sanded them down and primed them with oil based primer because I read that it adheres the best. Now I'm wondering if the Regal Benjamin Moore acrylic wall paint will work over the oil-based primer. Please help in my first time home owner adventures! :) (below - just some experimenting with wall color ;) )

My understanding is you can not paint Acrylic on Oil. If you have an oil base primer, than I think that you need to contact your Benjamin Moore dealer and they will tell you exacty what you need to do.

If you are painting trim, you should use a paint made for trim. Benjamin Moore sells a very good trim paint with primer already mixed in. I think it is called "Advance". I have not had trouble painting Latex/ Acrylic over Oil but if you get a paint with primer mixed in it, you should be fine. I agree with Mary Poulos - ask the paint dealer (as long as it's not one of the big box stores).

Sherwin Williams has a trim paint called Pro Classic, it seems to adhere to just about anything.

Yes, you can put the Benjamin Moore acrylic paint over an oil primer. My personal preference for your trim is Benjmain Moore Pearl finish.

We are a Benjamin Moore dealer. The rule of paint is this:
You cannot put acrylic paint over oil PAINT BUT you can put acrylic paint over oil PRIMER.
