[A]. DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
|Now, if it looks like it needs it, you can apply a second coat of paint.
5. If you like the look and the rough texture, your masterpiece is finished’!
6. Optional: After a couple of hours, or overnight, you may wish to rub down to a satin-smooth surface and/or distress the finish. You can rub down the paint as in No. 4 above, either dry or with oil. You can do any distressing at this time. Try and practice any of these options on a test piece first!
7. Another option. Sealing the surface on table tops, kitchen cabinets, floors, etc., is recommended. Without a sealer, the paint is fine, but it will waterspot and readily absorb dirt. Any sealer will work over Milk Paint. Watco or #66 Oil is excellent but will darken the paint color. Wax is fine but it could show rings in table tops. Clear gel finishes and most solvent based finishes usually work well as a sealer, but like oils and waxes, will darken the paint color. However, we have developed our own finish, CLEAR COAT, a non-toxic, water-borne, clear, satin acrylic. We believe it has some advantages over the other mentioned. Our CLEAR COAT is a very low odour, hard, non-yellowing, clear acrylic, that works well, can be brushed or sprayed, is fast drying, and darkens the paint least.
[C]. PAINTING PROCEDURES:
On new Wallboard, new Plaster, and non-porous surfaces such as Glass, Metal, Enamelled Surfaces, and Pre-primed Materials.
1. Surface must be clean, sound and fee of oil, grease, dust and dirt. Glossy surfaces should be dulled. Raw metal should be primed with a rust inhibiting primer. On sheetrock or masonry
that has joint compound over joints and nails, joint banding or photographing may produce problems caused by the difference in porosities and surface texture of the face paper of sheetrock or the toughness of masonry and the smoothness of the joint compound. When viewed in direct lighting, the joints may be visible. To avoid this phenomenon, an initial coat of sheetrock precoater or equivalent latex wall primer, (available at most paint stores,) may be advisable. Then proceed as shown below.
2. Paint one coat of Milk Paint. Note: On surfaces that have already been prime-coated with an oil-based primer, you have to add some of our Extra-Bond acrylic to the first coat only of Milk Paint, which will greatly increase adhesion of the Milk Paint. To use the Extra-Bond, measure out 2 parts prepared Milk Paint and 1 part Extra-Bond. Stir the liquids together.
[D]. PAINTING PROCEDURES:
Previously Painted Surfaces.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Unless you know the condition of the surfaces beneath the previous coats, we do caution you about the use of Milk Paint over multiple layers of paint that may have been applied without proper cleaning beforehand. Milk Paint dries very rapidly and shrinks in all directions while drying. This can pull and tug on the previous layers quite strongly, enough in some cases to cause the weakly bonded underlayers to peel off, thereby creating serious problems.
1. Good finishing practice states that any surface to be painted or re-painted must be clean and dulled, not shiny. All grime should be removed with a washing soda such as T.S.P., and shiny surfaces
