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 - if it is applied too thick it will be harder to sand back later.
Once the paint/oil is dry to touch, but hasn’t hardened, 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 the final finish.
Wipe with a soft, damp cloth or sponge.
For regular cleaning, we recommend using a small amount of detergent in water and wiping with a damp cloth.
