Clean the surface well using sugar soap, or lacquer thinners. For highly glossed areas, clean with the aid of a scouring pad or lightly sand prior to cleaning.
As a primer:
Apply 2 coats, one hour apart. Once you have applied your second coat, and it has dried for a further 4 hours, you can go ahead and paint as needed.
NB: for glass, glazed ceramics and porcelain we recommend additional drying time.
As a stain-block:
Apply 3 coats of Block & Tackle an hour between coats. Allow the final coat to cure for a minimum of 72 hours. Once cured, Block & Tackle will inhibit over 95% of the stains or ‘wood bleed’ typically encountered when painting older, stained, oiled or varnished items.
Should some bleeding occur after painting or sealing, simply sand off the upper layers of the affected areas only with a light sanding technique, apply 2 more coats of Block & Tackle, and allow 24 to 48 hours to cure (depending on the intensity of the bleeding). Repaint and seal the affected area as needed.
Block & Tackle can be applied with brush, sprayed or using a foam roller.
To clean your equipment simply use a mild solution of soap and water.
