We recommend that you use natural bristled brushes.
Natural bristled brushes are not normally recommended for use with waterbased paints, however, the softness of the bristles are ideal for applying Stonelux Paints. These Natural Bristled Economy Brushes have less bristles than a standard brush, which helps prevent the build-up of ground stone within the brush itself, resulting in ease of application and a perfect finish.
We recommend that you apply one coat of Primer (a second coat of Primer can be applied where there is a significant colour change). As our Stonelux® Paints are made with natural stone, we recommend a minimum of 3 coats of your chosen topcoat for a full and accurate depth of colour. Building our paints layer by layer, will ensure a beautiful, even, and hardwearing stone finish to your project.
All our paints are water-based, which means you can simply use water to clean your equipment.
If you've finsihed painting, scrape as much excess paint off the brush/roller as you can before cleaning in warm water.
If you haven't finished painting and want to keep your brush/roller fresh overnight, simply wrap in an airtight plastic bag or cling film and seal tightly around the handle with tape.
We always recommend using Stonelux® Primer & Undercoat before any application of Stonelux Paints. Here are the reasons why:
We offer 2 main types of finish: Standard Stone and Stone Flecks in Fireplace Stone Coating, Inglenook Fireside, Garden Stone Coating, Interior Stone Coating and Windowsill Stone Coating. We offer and additional 2 types of finish in The Stone Range: Flat and Acid Etched.
