How to apply

  • Difficulty levelstarsthree stars difficultylevel
Ensure surface and crack are dry and free from loose material.
Touch in nails and screw heads with oil based paint.
Stir to a creamy consistency.
Spread on with a paint brush using upward strokes.
Smooth over using the free spreader moving in an upward curve.
Maintain a firm, even pressure. Don't worry about small irregularities or 'tramlines'.
Allow to dry for 2 to 3 hours until the surface appears matt.
Now use the spreader to achieve a flat, smooth finish, rewetting the surface if necessary.
After 3 to 4 hours you can re-wet the surface and rub gently with a damp cloth and use the spreader to remove and finish irregularities for a super-smooth finish.
Allow to dry for 24 hours. Prime before painting, size before papering.
