How to use

Usage Properly prepared interior walls and ceilings including previously painted and primed plaster, wood, brick, drywall, cement and metal.
Prep Thoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry. Remove wallpaper and loose, peeling paint. Remove gloss from shiny surfaces. Patch cracks and spot prime. This paint can be used to prime patched areas and bare surfaces before applying the finish coat. For best results on heavily stained areas, use a coat of an appropriate stain-blocking primer. For drastic color changes or deep, vivid colors, prime with an appropriate tintable primer for optimal color accuracy and coverage.Drywall and Plaster: Fill cracks, pits and voids with patching compound. Allow new plaster to fully cure and sand smooth. Remove all sanding dust. Prime new and bare surfaces with Valspar Simplicity™.Wood: Sand wood smooth and patch holes and imperfections with wood filler or putty and sand smooth. Remove all sanding dust. Prime new and bare surfaces with Valspar Simplicity™.Metal: Prime bare metal surfaces with Valspar® Anti-Rust Primer.
Application Stir paint thoroughly. Intermix containers to ensure uniform color. Apply with a premium-quality roller, premium-quality synthetic brush or airless sprayer. Paint the ceiling first, then the walls. If applying by roller, roll from dry area into wet area using firm, crisscross strokes. Finish with long, even strokes in one direction. Note: Some deep or bright colors may require an additional coat to obtain complete hide. Surface conditions and application technique can also impact coverage.
