In relation to finishes the term carrier refers to the solvent or base that carrys the finish, or solid materials.

A finish is basically a blend of solid materials suspended in liquid form usually by some type of solvent. when exposed to an open environment, open can, or rolled on wall, the solvents escape the solution and leave the solids behind. hence the varying toxic stench when you paint or finish, hope this helps.

if you desire more info on this, I'll go into detail or explain further. Their is a great deal of science involved in finishing, that's why most people end up with poor refinshes and don't know why.

So this tri sodium phosphate thing can be bought at a hardware store? How does one apply it?

i believe you can buy it at any home improvement store. directions on box. it's like a detergent. water plus tsp is all. it's just a good surface prep for this sort of thing.

Bought a Place for a rental which was owned by a two pack a day smoker for years. The panelling was actually tacky from tar. After a thorough cleaning two coats of white pigmented shellac (Bin or Kilz) and two oats of paint they looked like they could have been new walls. That was ten years ago and no bleed through yet. I'm not a panelling fan by any stretch but I have to say they looked pretty damn good. She wants them painted... go for it.

Tom can you take some more pictures of your paneling from a distance.

Hi all,

We have the same problem and from this thread looks like painting is a reasonable and fast way to disguise the paneling.

I have a question though -- our paneling is not real boards, it's just a think wooden particle board with thin strips of wood on top. I call it (rightly or wrongly) faux paneling.

Do I approach this like I would a real wood paneling? Are there special steps required?

So far I have:

  • Clean paneling with TSP
  • Apply stain-blocking latex primer
  • Wax the frames
  • Caulk everything
  • 2 coats of low gloss paint

Also -- waxing the frames is to stop the paint from bleeding into the frames?
