    Is there a preferred method of applying the wall paint?

    For best results, we recommend use of a roller.  

    13a. What type of roller should I use?
    We recommend the use of a 9” 3/8” nap roller.  For smaller projects, we recommend the use of 6” 3/8” nap.

    13b. How much paint should I include in the paint tray?
    Fill the bottom of the paint tray to ensure there is enough paint to coat the entire roller.  

    13c. What is the best way to apply the wall paint with a roller?
    Fully wet roller with paint and remove excess before applying to wall.  Roll glitter on the wall by rolling up and down as well as side to side until it is evenly distributed on the surface.  Rewet roller as needed. See image below for reference on application.

    Note: Do not go back over already painted area. It will even out as you apply additional coats. Allow at least 2 hours dry time before applying an additional coat.

    If I prefer to brush on the wall paint, what type of brush should I use?

    We recommend using a synthetic bristle brush. Use light coats and spread glitter evenly over the surface. 

    Note: We do not recommend this method. 

    14a. What is the best way to apply the wall paint with a brush?
    Brush light coats and spread glitter evenly over surface. For best results, alternate brushing directions with successive coats to ensure even coverage. Use light, even strokes to ensure the smoothest finish. See image below for reference on application.

    If I prefer to spray on the wall paint, what should I use?

    Any conventional air assisted spray device with approx. 430 NI/min (15.2 cfm) air flow or more, operating spray pressure of 29-90 psi and a nozzle size of 1.2 – 2.2mm (1.6mm ideal) works great. Before application, we recommend mixing the paint well in spray gun, do not shake and use a fan pattern for best results. We do not recommend thinning the paint and it is not required.  Two coats can provide full coverage when spraying.
