PREPARATION: Wash your surface thoroughly. Ensure the surface is free of any grease, grime or dirt and completely dry. Stir thoroughly from the bottom before and during application. Use fine-grit sandpaper to lightly scuff any high gloss surfaces.
APPLICATION: Apply an even amount using a quality paint brush, roller or sprayer. Apply in smooth, even strokes in the direction of the wood grain. Avoid heavy pressure and back-brushing. Allow 1-2* hours before recoating. Between each coat, use a fine-grit sandpaper (220) to remove any brush strokes, drip marks or build-up. Remove all dust before recoating. Wait 24* hours before applying a topcoat.
*Dry time is calculated based on typical environmental conditions. Extreme temperatures or humidity may affect dry time.
TOPCOAT: Add long-lasting protection and durability with a House&Canvas topcoat.

CLEANUP: Wash brushes and equipment with warm soapy water immediately after use.
