I'm thinking of painting my kitchen countertops. I've read different opinions about Envirotex Lite. Can anyone share their experience with it and any helpful suggestions? Thanks.

Use plenty of painter's tape to mask off areas you don't want covered. Most of your counter tops should be painted with a roller; in the areas that won't reach you need an angle brush. Don't skimp on prep work or tools. Like all this type of paint, be sure to have plenty of fresh air (open windows galore) and follow all directions on the product! (06/07/2010)
I have painted a countertop with Stone Effects and am planning to use the Envirotex Lite to top coat it. Has anyone ever done the Envirotex on a countertop that is not installed? I removed the counter to do some other work. Should I reinstall it before doing the Enviro or not?
Does anyone have any tips for getting the Enviro on the backsplash? I haven't worked with this before, but it seems like it will just slide down. I would prefer a matte surface to my countertop. Has anyone ever applied a matte finish over the Enviro? Thanks for all your help.
