The easiest guide to prepare your surfaces like a pro...

Surface Preparation is the most important step when painting, if avoided it can affect the whole outcome of your project. 


Surfaces must be prepared correctly for the paint to adhere and bond to the surfaces.

Poor preparation will result in peeling and flaking. Resulting in premature failure of the paint.

Good preparation will give you a very long-lasting paint performance. 

Remove all loose and defective paint, and repair any loose plaster/render on walls. Sand down any wood surfaces. Use primer if required and this should be used on most unpainted surfaces, Including metal surfaces.

Ensure the surface to be painted is clean, dry and free from grease. 

Rub down with light sandpaper or sugar soap where the surface is painted. (if your surface has not been painted use primer accordingly.)

If you are going to paint on absorbent surfaces like fresh plaster, bricks, stone and or concrete surfaces, you can make a mist coat by mixing your first coat with 50% water. 

This must be applied to the bare surfaces and allowed to soak in and dry for 8 hours. We recommend using a stabilising primer from HQC which will give you a very good surface to paint on to.


Now you're ready to paint!

Use your Brush, Roller or Spray to start coating your walls with paint, apply 1 coat first and see if the colour & finish is strong enough for your personal preference, if not apply a second coat for a thicker, bolder finish.

IMPORTANT PRO TIP: Ensure you have enough paint in one batch, if you are using more than one container please ensure you mix the two containers in a single bucket to ensure colour consistency. (Due to batch variations)

Depending on the surface and the colour being painted 1 or more coats may be required. Allow 4- 6 hours in-between coats. The product is easy to apply - brush, roller or spray.
