    application and advice

    Ensure all surfaces are sound, clean, dry and free from rust and contamination. Lightly abrade previously painted surfaces before application to provide a key.

    Use by itself or mix a 50g acrylic colourant into a 500ml metallic shimmer. Ensure the product is thoroughly mixed. Try a small test area first. Apply 2-3 coats as required with a good quality brush. Roller and spray application - refer to technical data. On porous surfaces dilute the first coat with 10% water.

    Light reflection will accentuate brush marks and imperfections in the background. The covering ability of this paint will vary with the colour. Using the same colour paint as a base coat will significantly improve the depth of colour. The metallic shimmer is a pearlescent white, the mixed colour will therefore be pastel. It is essential to do a test area before application. High temperatures or direct sunlight will affect working time. Do not apply when rain is imminent.

    Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

    health, safety and the environment
    Non-hazardous. Ensure good ventilation. Keep out of reach of children.
    Contact with eyes - wash immediately with warm water. Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before washing in warm soapy water.
    Do not empty into drains or watercourses.
