application and advice

Ensure all surfaces are sound, clean, dry and free from rust and contamination. Lightly abrade previously painted surfaces before application to provide a key.

Use by itself or mix a 50g acrylic colourant into a 500ml metallic shimmer. Ensure the product is thoroughly mixed. Try a small test area first. Apply 2-3 coats as required with a good quality brush. Roller and spray application - refer to technical data. On porous surfaces dilute the first coat with 10% water.

Light reflection will accentuate brush marks and imperfections in the background. The covering ability of this paint will vary with the colour. Using the same colour paint as a base coat will significantly improve the depth of colour. The metallic shimmer is a pearlescent white, the mixed colour will therefore be pastel. It is essential to do a test area before application. High temperatures or direct sunlight will affect working time. Do not apply when rain is imminent.

Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.
