TOOLS & SUPPLIES

DIRECTIONS
STEP 1
PAINTING CONDITIONS: Paint in a well ventilated area

STEP 2
PREPARATION: Remove loose paint and rust with a wire brush or sandpaper. Lightly sand glossy surfaces. Clean surface with soap and water, rinse and allow to fully dry.

STEP 3
PRIMING: If painting on laminate or vinyl surface, no primer is needed. For bare metal or bare wood surfaces, a Rust-Oleum primer is recommended for superior adhesion.

STEP 4
PAINTING: Stir paint thoroughly. Use a high quality brush with flagged (split) ends for smaller areas. For best results, use roller to paint entire surface and use the brush for hard-to-reach or smaller areas.

STEP 5
DRY AND RECOAT TIMES: Dries to the touch in 1-2 hours, to handle in 4-6 hours. May be recoated within 1 hour or after 24 hours. May require more than one coat over contrasting colors. Allow 3 DAYS for surface to dry before use.

STEP 6
COVERAGE: One can of paint will cover 25 linear feet of an average countertop

STEP 7
NOTES ON USAGE:
Surface Cleaning - Clean surface with a damp non-abrasive cloth, mild detergent or mild household cleaner. Do not scrub with abrasive cleaners, steel wool, sandpaper or scouring pads.
Surface Protection - As with most manufactured laminate surfaces, this paint finish will remain durable with proper use and care. Use a trivet or other protective material underneath all hot cookware and other heated objects. Use cutting boards or other protective surfaces when preparing food. Heavy pounding, knives or other sharp utensils may scratch the surface.
