What you need to know about application
For painting feature walls some care and knowledge is required. Practice first if required.
- Keep a wet edge
- Use correct roller movements
- Use excellent quality rollers
Always start on one side or corner (not in the middle) and keep a wet edge. To assist keeping a wet edge do not paint in conditions that speed up paint drying. Don't paint in direct sunlight or in a breeze and apply primer or undercoat to porous surfaces to avoid absorption. When painting large surfaces such as walls, a second painter is necessary to do the cutting-in and the person with the roller must go over as much of the cut-in area as possible while it is still wet.
Roller movements should be up and down or left to right but not both and not diagonal or haphazard. A second painter is also useful to assist moving the ladder so that the next area can be painted before the pervious area dries too much. The final roller motion in the final coat should always be in the same direction e.g. down.
Sticky rollers may cause slippage. Off balance rollers will leave the appearance of barring in the dry paint. Soft brushes and rollers with bearings work best.
For brush and roller applications the paint can usually be used as supplied but dilution with 8-14% water (80-140ml water per litre of paint) can be used to eliminate all brush and roller marks on very smooth surfaces. It is even better to thin the paint (reduce Viscosity) using our Acrylic Flow Control Medium. If you use this Medium the paint will be thinned but will still not give roller spray.
For air-spaying the paint can be diluted with 14% water (140ml water per 1 litre of paint). Our Acrylic Airbrush Medium is perfect for spay applications that require paint with a very high flow. This Medium dramatically thins the paint for spraying without any detrimental effects.
There are two simple and useful pdf document that can be quickly downloaded from this product page or from the Technical Page of this website. One is called "Painting Tips for Metallics". We suggest that you read it if you intend to paint a feature wall, require a perfect finish free from brush or roller marks or want to the apply the paint with air-spray equipment. If you want to paint wooden furniture there is a pdf document called "Painting Wooden Furniture with Metallic Paints".
Appearance can be influenced by the light
The appearance of metallic paints can change as the viewing angle changes and as lighting changes. We have optimised the orientation behaviour of the metallic pigments during the drying process which significantly reduces this tendency and makes it easy to get a uniform finish.
