All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material. Rub down sound
glossy surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly before applying a pre-coat of Johnstone's Joncryl Water Based Primer Undercoat. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding. Treat knots with Johnstone's Woodworks Knotting Solution and prime exposed wood and metal surfaces with an appropriate primer. Special precautions should be taken during the surface preparation of pre-1960's paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.
Stir well before use and apply by brush or roller. Apply liberally and evenly for a smooth finish. Two coats are recommended under most conditions. Do not apply in temperatures below 10°C or in damp conditions.
