HOW TO USE

  • Usage
    Ideal for interior walls, ceilings and trim. Applies easily to properly prepared and primed plaster, drywall, brick, cement, wood 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 prior to painting. For best results on heavily stained areas, apply one coat of an appropriate interior latex primer.
  • Application
    Stir paint thoroughly. Intermix containers to ensure uniform color. Apply with a premiumquality roller, 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.
