It can be top coated with any smooth emulsion or gloss paint and applied to wood, metal, masonry, drywall, plaster and more.Application - Tape around the area you wish to paint before beginning. Three coats are required each at 0.2L/m2. Stir thoroughly before use and regularly during application; stir until the paint is a consistent dark grey colour.
