Preparation of the ground: 

In order to ensure adhesion and to achieve best image of painting, prepare the surface as follows:

  • The areas to be painted have to be clean, dry, dust- and fat-free, firm and bearing.
  • Old paintings: when intact clean and sand, otherwise with a paint remover.
  • Remove without residues flaking, not bearing coatings.
  • The minimum temperature for material and surroundings is 5°C


  • Stir well before use.
  • Brush with a glazing brush or roll with a synthetic roller oder use an airless gun (bring with universal thinner to spray viscosity.
  • Proposal: 3 paintings with Spar Varnish. Dilute intermediate coatings with approx. 5 % white spirit. Sand slightly between the work steps 
  • If used in outside premises, apply a coat of wood primer.
  • Do not work in the sun or during rain. Apply only over water. Cover directly weathered areas outside with lasures or any other covering material (e.g. synthetic paint).
  • Clean the tools immediately after use with a brush cleaner.

Tips for an optimal result:

  • Start to brush at corners  or edges. Use therefore a brush.
  • Then apply coating in cross-coats.
  • Consider a drying time of 24 hours between the layers.
  • Can be used with tools for solvent-based laquers.
