application and advice
Ensure that Scumble is well mixed. Select base coat colour in vinyl silk emulsion/satin latex or acrylic semi gloss/eggshell.
Apply base coat and allow to dry for a minimum of 24 hours with ventilation. For maximum open time seal with Polyvine Decorators Varnish. Colour your Scumble with Polyvine Universal Acrylic Colourant, mixing thoroughly. Brush or roller the coloured Scumble liberally over the base coat. Create the desired decorative effect by breaking the surface with a crumpled rag, bag, sponge or a Polyvine tool or brush.
Working time - the time that the glaze remains wet and able to create a pattern. To obtain the maximum working time - up to an hour - apply Scumble liberally in cool conditions on a completely non-porous base coat. Thickness of Scumble, temperature and humidity affect the working time.
In temperatures above 21ºc/70ºf, or for longer working time, use Tropical Scumble. Low temperature or high humidity increases drying time. Air movement is essential for faster drying.
Coverage/thickness of Scumble will affect drying time.
Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.
