Application & Aftercare
- Thoroughly stir the paint before applying it. This helps to ensure the colour pigments are properly mixed together.
- Apply one coat of the paint working it into the grout line. Finish each tile with a vertical stroke.
- Wait 24 hours for the paint to dry (unless stated otherwise)
- If you are painting with a significantly different colour, you may need to apply a second coat to make sure it is properly covered.
- After 24 hours, redefine the grout line with a grout pen.
