Time to paint
- 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.
- Smooth over the wet 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.
- 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 need to be applied.
