1CHOOSING AND PREPARING THE PIECE OF FURNITURE

Find a piece of furniture that is in "good condition". Seal off any holes or cracks with filler. Sand the furniture down lightly and ensure that it is free from dust and grease.

2CHOICE OF COLOUR

Choose your preferred colour concept. A sketch can help you find the perfect colour combination.

3GET THE SPRAY UNIT READY

Stir your preferred paint colour well and pour it into the spray attachment. To familiarise yourself with the unit's settings, we recommend carrying out a test spray on a piece of cardboard. If the volume of material is too low or the atomisation is not fi ne enough, you can dilute the chalk paint by up to 20%.

4LET’S HAVE SOME FUN WITH SPRAYING

Start at the outer edges and always change the direction of spray when the spray is not on the object. This avoids a build-up of thicker layers of paint during direction changes. Maintain a constant distance of around 5-15 cm from the object.
Tip: since chalk paint applied too thickly can cause drips, it's better to spray two thin coats than one thick coat. Then allow the chalk paint to dry in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Once the chalk paint is completely dry, a coat of varnish can be applied to seal it. The spraying process is the same as for the chalk paint.
