    "Yes you can, but it would take 2 coats, satinwood is designed for pre primed wood as it’s a self undercoating paint"

    "Yes but I would undercoat all woodwork first inc. doors with a light rub down between coats. Should then get a nice finish with the satinwood."

    "Hi,

    Using satinwood on top of your primed skirting boards is fine as long as you apply two coats allowing for drying times as the first coat will dry and slightly sink giving the visual impression that you need to apply another coat of satinwood.

    I would recommend sanding the glossed door framed first as the satinwood needs a key to stick to and not peel off over time.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Luke Cooper"

    "Yes you can but my advice would be to undercoat first as you will achieve a far more quality finish if you undercoat first"

    "Yes, it's fine to use satin wood paint on top of gloss. Make sure the skirting is smooth and cleaned down first. Apply masking tape at bottom of the wall to get a shape finish. Hope that I was helpful. Cheers"

    "Hi there,

    Yes you can use satin straight on primer woodwork.

    And you would need to lightly sand the sheen off the glosses door frames before painting."

    "Yes you can use satin wood straight on top of primed new skirting. But before using on top of glossed door frames you would need to sand to key the surface for the satinwood to take on top of the gloss"

    "I suggest using under coat on the wood before a top coat, wood is porous so needs multiple coats to give a solid finish, also sand lightly with fine grade sandpaper between coats"

    "Hi Mark, I would recommend using undercoat first because sometimes the satin will not fully cover it, and for your doors I would give them a good rub down and then undercoat it before you re-paint them especially if it's going to be satin as it will bubble and then peel off"

    "Most satinwood is self undercoating so should be fine .Make sure you rub down the glossed frames first to give the paint a key. I like to use the oil based satinwood on my jobs."

    "Not really you would be better off putting a coat of undercoat on both the gloss frames and the skirting boards, as it build a solid coat then put your satinwood as a finishing coat ."
