  1. Properly ventilate the area by opening windows or using fans. 
  2. Apply painter's tape to any surface you don't want to paint.
  3. Thoroughly mix Part B to ensure any settled pigment is redispersed.
  4. Add Part A to Part B and mix thoroughly for 1 minute. Apply within 6 hours of mixing.
  5. If using a fine quality, fine bristle varnish brush, brush in one direction only for a smooth surface and feather the edges as you paint to avoid a hard line between painted areas.  Apply two coats, waiting at least 1 hour between coats.
  6. If using a high quality, ¼” short nap roller made for kitchen or bath use, apply two coats, wait at least 1 hour between coats.
  7. Small bubbles will appear on the surface as you paint. As the paint dries, the self leveling properties will eliminate these bubbles.
  8. Dries to the touch in 1 hour. Allow to dry at least one hour before applying a second coat. Allow to dry 3 days before exposing to water.
TIP: Ventilation is important. Open windows and use fans to eliminate excess odor.
