Hints and Tips
  • Paint will not adhere to glossy or dirty surfaces.
  • Practice makes perfect. Do a test piece first on cardboard to get the feeling.
  • Use masking tape or newspaper to prevent paint from going on areas you don't want it to.
  • Have lots of rags handy for any cleaning.
  • Like all oil-based paints, some yellowing of the original colour may occur with ageing
