So while I was outside I decided to paint a plant stand I have that had some rust on it. I used sandpaper to get off as much rust as I could. I had some white paint, that was actually interior white paint but it was all I had. I stirred it for quite awhile I thought,,and then begin painting. The paint was a bit too runny, so I stirred it some more,,,still runny. I was reading online they said leaving it open will help just check it once an hour, then I read something saying if you are in a hurry use cornstarch or flour..? Huh? have you ever had to thicken latex paint?

Well, I do know that the interior latex paint will not stay on the metal if it is subjected to the outdoors. Actually, an enamel paint is what you need for metal. I have never used cornstarch or flour to thicken interior paint.
