Remove any loose and flaking material then fill holes and cracks with an appropriate filler. Glossy surfaces should be sanded to provide a key. Given the high quality of this formulation, the paint can be thinned if required by adding up to 10% water for the first coat only. This is particularly recommended for porous surfaces. If your room has been newly renovated, please read our advice 'Tips for painting on a freshly plastered wall'.
Stir well before use. Always check a small area first as we cannot accept any responsibility for colour discrepancy that may arise after use. Apply one or more coats as required using a paintbrush, paint pad or roller. Avoid spreading the paint too thinly and avoid reworking areas that are still wet. An extra coat may be required to cover strong or contrasting colours. Do not apply in damp or cold conditions below 10°C.
Touch dry in 1-2 hours. Recoatable in 2-4 hours. Replace lid firmly to ensure an airtight seal. Remove as much paint as possible from decorating tools before cleaning in warm soapy water, then rinse and dry thoroughly. Do not empty surplus paint into drains and watercourses - most local authorities will have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings and paint, contact them for details.
Cleaning and aftercare
Allow to dry for at least 7 days after application before wiping the surface. Clean painted surface with a soft cloth and clean soapy water. Clean brushes with warm, soapy water (the gloss too... it's water-based).
