Americana Decor Maxx Gloss provides a revolutionary, superior, high-gloss sheen that delivers an almost lacquer-like finish. It enables you to create contemporary, sleek, and polished furniture and home décor accessories. Until now, this level of gloss finish has only been available in aerosol spray paints. Aersols cause over-spray and must be used in a well-ventilated area for safety. Maxx Gloss now offers DIYers the ability to add a high-gloss finish with a water-based, non-toxic, brush-on formula. Patent protection has been applied for.
Can be used on wood, terra cotta, canvas, metal, decorative glass, most plastics, and more.
The advanced adhesion technology assures a durable finish on almost all surfaces without the need to prime or sand.
Americana Decor Maxx Gloss® comes in 20 high-gloss, trendy colors.
Test an inconspicuous spot to ensure that adhesion occurs and no surface primer is required. If desired, sand surface to remove any imperfections for smoothest finish. No priming or sanding required on sealed surfaces. Clean object thoroughly. Stir paint; do not shake. Apply with a quality, soft bristle brush in multiple, thin coats to prevent drips and runs on vertical surfaces. Immediately smooth out drips. Let dry to the touch between coats. Allow 14 days to cure fully. Soap and water clean-up. One 8 oz jar covers approximately 35 square feet on sealed surfaces.
Seal the surface first with one coat of Multi-Purpose Sealer and let dry. Sand the surface with fine grit sandpaper. Remove dust with a slightly damp cloth. Apply a second coat of sealer and let dry. Use a small piece of brown paper bag to "sand" the surface until smooth. Wipe with cloth. Use a good quality, soft-bristled brush to apply a thin coat of Americana Decor Maxx Gloss. Let dry to the touch. Repeat paint application until desired sheen is achieved (usually 2 to 3 coats).
Avoid overloading brush or overworking paint.
Load brush to a medium thickness to get a nice, leveled look. If it is too thin, brush strokes will show.
Maxx Gloss is thinner than most paints, so take caution on vertical surfaces. Leave surface flat as long as possible to prevent drips.
Use a flat, soft bristle brush to achieve a smoother, streak-free finish.
