Coverage

  • A 750ml tin will provide a coat of up to 12.5m2. For a durable finish, a minimum of 2 coats is required, so your 750ml tin should provide full coverage for just over 6m2 on non-porous surfaces like laminate or metal.
  • Always ensure you have enough paint for your whole project. When more than 1 tin of the same colour is needed, it is good practice to ensure batch numbers are identical or to intermix batches prior to commencing painting.
  • Porous, or ‘thirsty’ surfaces like bare wood or MDF, tend to absorb paint meaning additional coats are likely to be required to achieve a durable finish. In this case, your 750ml tin will provide less than 6m2 of full coverage. If you apply the paint too thinly, durability may be affected.

Preparation

  • Ensure surfaces are in suitable condition for painting – clean, dry, free from wax, grease or penetrating substances and in sound condition. If previously painted, remove loose or flaking paint.
  • Surface preparation required in addition to the above – clean with Frenchic Sugar Soap, rinse and dry thoroughly. Hand-sand sufficiently to abrade the surface. Wipe off any dust, paint away! For a great demonstration, see our video from Frenchic TV.
  • Take care on opening the tin lid – a Frenchic tin opener is recommended.
  • Stir thoroughly with a wide implement, such as a Paint Paddle, prior to each use.

Application, drying and curing (hardening)

  • Apply with a good quality brush or a roller. Also suitable for spraying – thin with up to 15% tap water and apply additional coat(s).
  • To allow self-levelling, avoid overworking the paint
  • Allow a minimum of 1 hour between coats (even if the paint feels touch dry).
  • Curing (hardening) time is 2-3 weeks in normal conditions. Treat gently until curing is complete.

Clean up and storage

  • Reseal tin after use. Clean up any spills immediately with water. Wash brushes in warm, soapy water.
  • Do not store where the tin could be subjected to damp, frost, freezing or high temperatures.
