You can use it, by starting with the thinner Kinsser 123, and further thinning it with water until it strains freely at a slow pour through a Bag Strainer.

It will require at least 3-4 coats, (4 coats is best) but they are Dusters, and will dry very quickly. Sand lightly after the next to last coat for a ultra smooth primed surface.

MississippiMan, do you recommend sanding the painted screen at any point, maybe before the last 1 or 2 coats?

Sometimes during the Dusting process, a slight amount of coarse texture can happen (feels slightly "sand-papery" like) This usually happens because the Gun is being held too far from the surface (12" to 14" is the maximum distance)

On / about the 5-6th coats, the slight texture can be eliminated by sanding very lightly over the entire surface. The object is not "removal" but "smoothing".

Wipe or Dust the screen surface clean with a soft cloth, and apply 2 Dusters.

HELP! I am in the process of priming my screen and I'm getting different textured spots throughout the entire screen. It seems anything I'd gone and re-joint compounded to fill in pin holes and the such has a much more "shiny" appearance than the rest of the screen. The pic below is 3 duster coats of Zinsser 123. The darker appearing spots have a slightly more glossy and darker appearance than the rest of the screen. I seriously fear this will only get worse if I attempt to spray the screen paint over it. Do I try a few more coats of primer? Sand? Move on with the screen paint? Any advice is much appreciated!
