Textured basecoat creates beautiful finishes that bond to almost any prefinished surface including varnish, poly, glass, metal, tile, plastic, wood, masonry or laminate without stripping sanding or priming. Its thick on purpose – add water (up to 10%) only if it makes your job easier.
Be sure your surface is CLEAN, DRY and GREASE FREE.
Remember you are creating a finish. Our product can be painted, mushed, pushed haphazardly using a brush or roller. Thicker and mushier creates a more dramatic effect. You can achieve a smoother finish by using less material. One coat is often sufficient, you may prefer two. There is no right or wrong… when you love it you have done it!
Drying time: 30 min to overnight depending on how thick paint is applied.
Sand to achieve desired smoothness (220-400 grit) or distressing (80-150 grit).
For a color over color look, apply Caromal Colours Chipping Creme between 2 different colors of Textured Basecoat.
If so desired, after sanding, apply Caromal Colours Toner as directed. For durability or exterior use, surface must be top coated using a top-coat of your choice.
Clean up: Good old fashioned soap and water.
Coverage: approximately 200 sf.
