Application Method

Stir thoroughly before use. Do not apply to surfaces when the ambient temperature is below 5o C.

Brushing: Use a high quality natural bristle brush that is suitably sized for the project at hand. New brushes should be conditioned by washing in clean white spirit and thoroughly drying with a clean, lint free, cloth. Avoid immersing brush too far into the paint to prevent paint from entering the ferrule. Avoid drips and splashes by not overloading the brush. Apply paint in even strokes and only extend painting area such that a wet edge can be easily maintained. For the highest quality appearance, keep final brush strokes all in the same direction and never go over paint that has already begun to dry. For intricate items, or where high ambient temperatures/high air flow conditions cannot be avoided, the open time maybe extended further with a 5% (v/v) addition of white spirit. This advice is also applicable to large flat areas; however, use of a paint roller is the recommended application method in such cases. Lightly rubbing down between coats will remove any dust motes and other surface contamination, producing a near professional finish.

Roller: Use a short nap mohair type sleeve for best appearance on smooth surfaces. Increase nap length for textured surfaces, as appropriate, to ensure even and thorough coverage. Keep final strokes all in the same direction, maintaining a wet edge throughout.
