Overlap about 25 percent.- Work in manageable sections.- Use a respirator.- If you have never sprayed before, practice on a piece of paper or cardboard. - If you get a run or any kind of error or drip, take a brush and lightly brush it out.- Allow project to dry 1-2 hours. Sand topcoat smooth with a 220 sanding pad.- Repeat with 2-3 more coats until satisfied with the finish.- Milk paint dries to a low luster sheen and is durable to stand up to medium wear. - If more protection is required, apply 1-2 coats of HP Water Based Topcoat for interior and Exterior 450 for outdoor applications.- Cure time is dependent upon temperature and humidity; at 70 degrees Fahrenheit and 70 percent relative humidity, 3-4 coats of Milk Paint will cure in about 14-21 days.Thinning: Thin GF water based products with 10-15% extender or water at point of use only. Decant what you need into a separate container and use immediately. If thinned water based products are stored, they will separate and lose the semi-gel consistency. -------------------------------------------------------------GENERAL FINISHES PRODUCT LINKS:-------------------------------------------------------------Chalk Style Paint - http://bit.ly/1X0R5OOMilk Paint - http://bit.ly/1g8FB8GGlaze Effects - http://bit.ly/1Jig7krPearl Effects - http://bit.ly/1Ko0fhIOil Based Gel Stains - http://bit.ly/1gRtXzcHigh Performance Topcoat - http://bit.ly/1vQEYQEFlat Out Flat Topcoat - http://bit.ly/1IlKDci--------------------------------------------------WHERE TO BUY GF PRODUCTS:--------------------------------------------------https://generalfinishes.com/where-buy
