preparation

Details

New Plaster Walls

For plaster skim, allow at least four weeks for the plaster to thoroughly dry. Apply a primer coat by thinning the paint with a 5 to 25% (v/v) addition of clean water, depending upon the porosity of the substrate.

Cut in by brushing at the same dilution recommendation as for priming, to promote flow and sealing of the substrate. Finish by applying two full coats. For new, fully plastered walls, allow at least six months for the plaster to thoroughly dry before painting with Little Greene Absolute Matt Emulsion.

This product is not recommended for painting lime or other natural plasters.

Existing Plaster Walls

Lightly wash any existing paint work to remove any dust or surface laitance. Apply a primer coat by thinning with a 0 to 25% (v/v) addition of clean water, depending upon the porosity of the substrate. Finish by applying at least one full coat, as required.

For significant colour scheme change, undercoating with Little Greene Intelligent Primer Undercoat is highly recommended

All Other Substrates

Application

Details

Brush

Use a high quality synthetic bristle brush that is suitably sized for the project at hand. New brushes should be conditioned by washing in clean water and thoroughly drying with a clean, lint free, cloth.

 

Roller

Use a short nap wool blend type sleeve for best appearance on smooth surfaces. Increase nap length for textured surfaces, as appropriate, to ensure even and thorough coverage. Keep final strokes all in the same direction, maintaining a wet edge throughout.

Spray

Please refer to the data sheet for full information on spraying

Cleaning

      • For light surface soiling; use a dilute, lukewarm solution of domestic washing up lquid and a clean sponge or lint free cloth.
      • Ensure sponge or cloth is well wetted (but not dripping), gently wipe the affected area and repeat as required.
      • To help prevent general build up, keep your home well ventilated during activities likely to contribute to oil and grease accumulation, like cooking.
      • Tackle dust generated from DIY by, preferably, collecting at source or thorough vacuum cleaning.
      • To prevent marking, always use a soft brush attachment to vacuum clean adjacent surfaces.

 

Special Care

      • Avoid placing heavy objects onto surface for a least a week after painting.
      • Bookshelves and other frequent use surfaces may benefit from a very light application of beeswax polish to help prevent marring over the long term.

Repair

      • Lightly rub down area to be repainted, apply suitable primer to any exposed substrate. Repaint item “break to break” with one or two coats as required. Spot repairs will almost always result in inferior aesthetic appearance.
