I'm struggling with paint. I've been using a high-gloss Behr enamel for our trim work in our house.
This photo shows a door on the left that was rolled on, and the casing on the right, which was brushed on.
I don't mind brush strokes (not that they are intentional, but I do find they give a bit of interest) but rather it's the light/dark spottiness I get everywhere.
I can't tell what causes it. I don't think it's coverage, as all surfaces were primed (white) and then got two coats. It's as if the paint, as it dries, splotches like this. I'm about to apply a 3rd coat, but it's frustrating to paint trim with 3 coats.
It seem like every coat I give it, the problem persists.
Any ideas as to what the issue is? Can I improve my technique? Lousy paint? Something else?
(Ignore the blue tinge...that's just a side effect of the iPhone's camera).
