Application Method

Little Greene Intelligent Exterior Eggshell is supplied ready for use without the need for thinning. Stir thoroughly prior to use. Lightly rubbing down between coats will remove any dust motes and other surface contamination, producing a near professional finish. Application and use should always conform to the codes of practice described in BS 6150 and BS 5493.

Brushing: Use a high quality synthetic bristle brush, suitably sized for the project at hand. New brushes should be conditioned by washing in clean water 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.

Roller: Use a short nap wool blend type sleeve for best appearance on smooth surfaces. Keep final strokes all in the same direction, maintaining a wet edge throughout. Never be tempted to go over already drying paint as this will lead to lap marking and flashing.
