Solvent based enamels and varnishes tend to be a little thicker and more viscous in the colder weather. This can make them difficult to apply and often results in a heavier film build being applied that can lead to unsightly runs as well as drying and recoat issues. Try standing the unopened can of paint in a container of warm water to warm up the contents before use to make it easier to apply.
As we move into the colder winter months, painting in cold weather will extend the drying time which can leave the wet film susceptible to unsightly surface defects that will detract from the appearance and require rectification.Read More
