How to Use Chalky Finish Paint

Shake or stir well. Clean object thoroughly. No sanding or priming necessary. Apply using a soft brush or roller. Allow to dry between coats. Distress if desired. Natural tannins or existing stained finishes may bleed through paint; test on hidden area to ensure stain blocker is not required. For added protection and sheen, seal with Americana Decor Crème Waxes or Americana Decor Varnishes.
