How to use:
For best results always clean the surface prior to painting with hot soapy water. We strongly recommend scruff sanding with 80grit sandpaper to give the surface tooth and apply one coat of PURECO BASE & BLOCKER to further help with adhesion - not all pieces will need a base coat to assess on a case by case basis. Applying 1 coat of PURECO BASE & BLOCKER over dark surfaces prior to painting with Whites & Brights will reduce the number of coats of Vintage Chalk Paint needed. Always STIR your paint well, ensure the brush/roller or sprayer is clean and ready for use. Apply 2-4 coats, in most cases, 2 coats are all you need. Sanding between coats is completely optional to help smooth brush strokes, Vintage will self-level to an extent however chalk paint will naturally hold more texture. We recommend using a high-quality synthetic brush like our brushes (find them HERE) will help achieve a beautiful finish. Vintage is a form of chalk paint and is porous, it needs to be sealed to protect its finish, use wax, oil, topcoat, or glaze.
Colour experience always depends on surface profile and porosity. Whilst every effort is made to achieve colour accuracy for our online swatches, differences between display screens mean colour accuracy cannot be guaranteed. We recommend purchasing a sample in your chosen colour and finish to test. Please refer to all photos to gain an understanding of the colour shade.
