So we have a media room, and my designer acted like we would hate black if we also used it as an office, so she recommended "Peppercorn" by sherwin williams. That ended up looking really bad, so we switched to black.
I used Duration in a matte finish, black magic color. It covered well, but when the sunlight hit it, it was streaked. I couldn't figure out how to paint it on properly, so the local store recommended going with Promar-400 in flat black.
I thought it would be ok, but I have four coats on it so far, and I still see streaks when sunlight reflects off of it. It looks ok at night with lights but sunlight looks really bad reflecting off of it.
Anyway, any ideas? Best I can figure at this point is that I need to be adamant about smoothing strokes in the same direction. Otherwise i don't know what my problem is other than I should have reprimed, in which the local store said I wouldn't have to do.
It's aggravating because at this point I have a coat of darkened primer, two coats of Peppercorn in Cashmere, two coats Duration in matte, and four coats of Pro-Mar 400 in flat black. Can't seem to make it look right and need to figure out if I need to continue down this path of putting more coats on or what. It looks great except when sunlight hits it. I can't figure that part out.
