You can have a great paint, great colour but if the prep is bad no amount of good product is going to cover it!

Surface Preparation

Surface must be sound, clean, dry and free of dust, dirt, grease and mould.

Any not clean or free MUST be washed down thoroughly with sugar soap.

Wipe with a clean, damp, lint free cloth.

Mould should be treated with an anti fungal cleaner and wiped off.

Imperfections, loose or flaking existing paint should be removed with sanding and paint edges feathered off.

Cracks, nail holes and damaged areas should be filled with a waterbased filler, allowed to dry and sanded smooth.

Any oil-based surfaces must be cleaned and sanded to provide key (a surface finish the waterbased paint can adhere too).

Previously painted surfaces - No primer required, as long as the above preparation is adhered too.

Bare timber and MDF - water down the first coat and then add coats as normal.

Bare plaster including fibrous plaster, gypsm plaster and plasterboard - Apply one mist coat of either low sheen, matt or satin then paint as normal.


Stir well before use.

Use two coats of any top coat.


Thinning is not recommended for the high gloss. When applying one mist coat, the paint can be thinned up 25% volume.


Remove as much of the product as possible from brushes and rollers.

All equipment can be cleaned in water.

Storage & Shelf Life

Store in a cool, dry, frost-free environment and away from direct sunlight.

Containers once opend, should be kept free from any contamination and properly resealed for storage.


Avoid release into the environment.

Leave left-over paint out to dry by leaving the lid off the container and dispose with refuse if permitted by you local authority.
