NB: PREPARATION

In most cases preparation is very little and quite often none is required. The paint is a primer!

There are certain issues which will affect all water-based paints, and especially porous paint like chalk-finish paints. 

The following surfaces will require cleaning, ideally with an eco-friendly paint stripper or brush cleaner:

- Oiled, waxed, or surfaces sealed with oil-based varnish

- Dark or yellow woods like pine, imbuia, teak etc. In these cases, a stain-block is recommended to ensure the natural tannins do not yellow your paint

- Generally when painting antique pieces, we do recommend cleaning and application of stain-block
