Painting instructions for Uula Furniture Paint
Always choose colours in the space and lighting where the paint is intended for. Lighting and gloss level of the paint affect the perception of colour. Stir the paint well before and during painting. Reserve and mix enough paint for large surfaces to avoid potential colour variation in different batches. Paint a test patch on a separate piece of similar material to ensure the colour is correct. Please note that the paint attains its true colour once it has dried properly. Use plenty of paint, as a roller or paint brush can cause uneven texture and gloss levels with too little paint. Take care of the painting environment and protect untreated surfaces with masking tape, paper, cardboard or protective film. If you paint decorative patterns or surfaces that use masking tape, we recommend a longer drying time before taping the painted surface and re-painting.
We recommend using a roller or paint brush depending on the surface material and structure. The surface to be painted must be dry, the relative air humidity below 80 % and the temperature at least +10°C. The painted surface is touch dry in approx. 30 minutes and ready for a re-coat in 2 hours.
Unpainted surfaces: Clean the surface of dust. Wash dirty surfaces with Uula Washing Agent following the instructions. Allow to dry thoroughly before painting. Level all cracks and holes with filler if necessary, and clean the surface after sanding. Prime new surfaces with Uula Primer. Apply two coats of Into Furniture Paint, leaving a minimum of 2 hours between coats. Thin with water if necessary.
Old painted or varnished surfaces: Remove peeling and flaky old paint. If necessary, use the efficient and safe Uula Paint Remover to remove old paint layers. Roughen glossy or hard surfaces with a sandpaper to ensure adhesion. Wash dirty surfaces with Uula Paint Wash following the instructions. Allow to dry thoroughly before painting. Level all cracks and holes with filler if necessary. Remove sanding dust and clean the surface before painting. Apply two coats of Into Furniture Paint, leaving a minimum of 2 hours between coats. Thin with water if necessary.
Coverage: Approximately 7m2/litre depending on the roughness and porosity of the surface.
Cleaning of equipment: Wash with soap and water straight after finishing painting.
Storage & prevention of environmental impact: Keep in a cool and dry place. Do not allow to freeze. Dry and empty containers can be recycled. All liquid waste must be taken to a municipal hazardous waste collection point.
Be careful with all painted surfaces during the first month. Clean with soft cloths and sponges that do not scratch the surface. Use only neutral washing agents. Rinse the surfaces carefully.
