No primer is required before using this product.
Shabby Chic, Distressed, Pickled and Ethnic finishes can be achieved. For a two tone effect:
Once the base colour is dry, use the brush to apply the second colour. Avoid painting on too thick. Too thick is harder it is to sand back later.
Once the paint/oil is dry to touch, but hasn’t hardened, you can start sanding. For manual sanding, use 6120 sia fleece handpads 180 - 320 Grit. Remove the top coat of paint to reveal the colour beneath. Select pad type depending on the furniture and how distressed you want your paint work.
Finally, optionally apply a coat of Rio Verde Clear Decorative Oil. This will seal and protect the paint.
Wipe with a soft, damp cloth or sponge.
