Application Guide

What you’ll need

Brush (good quality synthetic brush gives the best results), roller (small or medium nap ‘hairy’ roller rather than foam), or sprayer (HVLP); also caulk or filler and sandpaper if needed to fill gaps and holes, and stain blocking primer to block resin bleeds and tannin stains applying paint to susceptible wood surfaces. 

Preparation

Make sure all surfaces are sound, clean and dry. If required fill and sand to a flat surface.

Remove any grease or oils with a soap solution or something like sugar soap for stubborn areas.

Flaking paint and rust should be removed prior to painting. Porous surfaces or fresh plaster should be sealed first with a diluted ‘mist’ coat, making sure plaster is thoroughly dry before application, otherwise use paint straight from the tin.

If painting onto wood surfaces that may be prone to resin bleed or tannins coming out of the timber, apply 1 or 2 coats of Stain Blocking Primer before painting to avoid paint coatings becoming stained.

Wear appropriate clothing when handling paint as it will stain clothes. 

DILUTION

For a mist/primer coat, dilute paint by approximately 30% water increasing to 40% water in hot, dry conditions, otherwise use straight from the tin including in sprayers.

APPLICATION

BEST SHAKEN & STIRRED! Mix paint thoroughly before and during. Use a good quality synthetic brush, roller, or sprayer.

When coating large areas, cover up to still-wet paint to avoid an uneven patchy coating.

Adheres well to metal radiators and interior woodwork from doors to skirting boards.

COATS

Two coats for a full, deep coating. Three coats will enhance lighter colours and increase opacity of coating.

Please note that due to the matt nature of Thorndown Wall Paint, the colour may appear slightly darker than with the satin sheen of Wood Paint in the same colour.

DRYING

In fine weather, a single coat dries easily in under an hour. Drying time is extended in cold damp conditions.

CLEANING UP

Use hot or cold water, with or without detergent, on paint-wet equipment. Be very careful not to allow sprayer nozzles to dry out – this will make cleaning them almost impossible!

STORAGE

Paint will keep for approximately 2 years or more in a sealed tin stored out of freezing or extremely high temperatures.

Just mix well with a paint stirrer before use as the paint will have separated over the years. Using a cheap hand blender does the job very well and with no effort!

Please, please don’t throw away unused or dried paint or preserver into drains or watercourses. Most local authorities have free facilities for disposing of paint and coatings.
