how to apply paint library pure flat emuslion
Stir thoroughly before use.
Do not apply to surfaces when the ambient temperature is below 5˚C.
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.
Avoid immersing brush too far into the paint to prevent paint from entering the ferrule.
Avoid drips and splashes by not overloading the brush.
Apply paint in even strokes and only extend painting area such that a wet edge can be easily maintained.
For the highest quality appearance, keep final brush strokes all in the same direction and never go over paint that has already begun to dry.
For intricate items, or when high ambient temperatures/high air flow conditions cannot be avoided, the open time maybe extended with a 10 to 15% (v/v) addition of a propriety water based paint conditioner.
This advice is also applicable to large flat areas; however, use of a paint roller is the recommended application method in such cases.
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.
Never be tempted to go over already drying paint as this will lead to lap marking and flashing.
