Jodi Marks: You know, I love hanging out in the paint department, and I love seeing all the new products and I love putting paint on my walls. But when people talk to me about doing their painting projects, I always say take that extra step and put high gloss on your trim, because that’s really gonna make the colors on your wall stand out. But a lot of people go, “Oh, oil-based trim paint, that’s so messy, it’s hard to clean up, it drips, it leaves brush marks.” Until now.

Take a look at this. Glidden has come out with a trim and door paint exclusively for that area. It’s got the Gel-Flow technology, and this is perfect because it eliminates drips and runs, and it eliminates the brushstrokes that you would typically get in an oil-based high-gloss trim paint.

You can see it comes in a wide variety of colors, so you’re bound to find something that you like. It’s very easy to go on. And, again, the thing that I like best about it is you don’t have to keep going back over and over that surface to try to eliminate those brushstrokes, because you won’t get them in the first place.

This is a good product.

    We initially purchased the high gloss white trim and door and used it exclusively on all our trims. We were so impressed with the gel-flow finish we tried it on our kitchen cabinets. Again, we were totally impressed especially with its ability to fill-in tiny holes without leaving brushstrokes.
    My question is: My daughter just purchased a very old house that has lead paint on all doors, trim and windows. Will your gel-flow trim paint encapsulate the old lead paint which is not pealing? As thick as the gel-flow is, I told my daughter it will. But, not absolutely sure. Thank you!
