Review: Zinsser Perma-White Mold & Mildew-Proof Interior Paint

Reminds me of that old elementary school prank call:

Caller (muffling giggles): "Excuse me, but is your refrigerator running?"
Person who answered: "Yes?"
Caller (bursting into guffaws at own cleverness): "You'd better go catch it then!"

And that, in a nutshell, is how I feel about the Zinsser. Now I'm an old hand with a paint brush and roller, but I haven't done many ceilings. That said, I was stunned at how runny and thin the Zinsser was. I was caught between not having enough paint on the brush and having paint drip off the handle. I'd see paint drips down the walls when I'd barely coated the ceiling above. The coverage was also poor, possibly because I feared overloading the brush. This seemed to happen all too easily.

The guy at the paint store sold me this formulation because I was doing a bathroom ceiling. It's supposed to be great at resisting mildew. I hope so. It wasn't fun to apply.
