Application Method

Can be applied by brush or spray. Stir thoroughly before use. Requires no undercoat. Dilution: As supplied Soft Distemper requires an addition of at least 10 % water. For ceilings of varying porosity, a further dilution may be required to provide good flow and minimise variations in colour and tone. Ensure all surfaces are sound, clean, dry and free from dirt, grease and other contamination. Flaking or peeling may occur if painting over weak paint layers.
