Time to Paint
- Before you paint your fence, tie back and cover your garden, remove any bikes or cars, brush away any dirt and lay down a drop sheet.
- To ensure you achieve the best results possible, use a wire brush to remove imperfections on older fences and an anti-moss solution to combat mould.
- Load spray gun with Dulux Rapidfinish as directed on the pack. Point the spray gun directly ahead and spray up and down. Release your finger from the trigger when you get to the top and bottom to prevent too much paint forming in one area and dripping.
- Start by cutting in around the edges and hard to reach areas using Dulux Weathershield.
- Apply paint to the surface using short, horizontal brush strokes or alternatively apply paint using a medium nap roller.
- Smooth over the painted section with long brush strokes. Do not reload the brush when you do this. Don’t brush it too much – a few strokes should be enough to smooth the surface.
- Repeat this process for the second coat. Allow to dry, then give the surface a light sand with 400 grit sandpaper and repeat for a second coat.
- If painting bare timber a third coat will be required
- Prepare the surface by applying 1 coat of Dulux 1Step Prep Water Based.
- Start by cutting in around the edges of your furniture piece.
- Apply Dulux Aquanamel to the surface using short, horizontal brush strokes.
- Once you’ve completed an area, while paint is still wet, lightly smooth over the painted section with long brush strokes. Do not reload the brush when you do this, a few strokes should be enough to smooth the surface.
- Allow 2 hours to dry, then give the surface a light sand with 400 grit sandpaper.
- Repeat above steps for a second coat.
