Painting Instructions for Uula Interior Oil Paint

Painting Instructions for Uula Interior Oil Paint.  Uula Matt Interior Oil Paint is suited to priming new and previously painted interior wood, stone and plastered walls and ceilings. Surfaces painted with Interior Oil Paint are highly breathable and durable. It is characteristic for oil paints to take on a yellowish tint in dark spaces over time.  It is good to take this into consideration when selecting colours. 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.

Painting Instructions for Uula Interior Oil Paint

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 plastic. We recommend painting with a brush or a roller.

The surface to be painted must be dry, the relative air humidity less than 80% and the temperature a minimum of +10°C. The paint is touch dry in approximately 24 hours and ready for a re-coat in 48 hours. Low temperatures and lack of light slow down the drying process.
