All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material. Prime bare surfaces with the appropriate Johnstone's primer. Rub down previously painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960's paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.
Stir well. Easy to apply by brush or roller. Do not apply over polystyrene surfaces. If more than one can of a colour is to be used in the same area, intermix before use.
Johnstone's Eggshell will cover approximately 20 sq. metres per litre depending on the nature and porosity of the surface being painted.
