  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Primer - Ruddy Brown (#51317)

Instructions:

  1. Place plaques on newspaper to protect work area.
     
  2. Spray one coat of Ruddy Brown Primer on front, back and sides of project, following manufacturer’s instructions. Let dry.
     
  3. Spray entire project with Georgia Clay, following manufacturer's instructions. Let dry.
     
  4. Spray light mist of water over entire plaque. Dampen sponge.
     
  5. Wearing rubber gloves, spray Flat White into disposable plastic tub to form a puddle of paint. Dip sponge lightly into paint. Wipe off any excess on newspaper or scrap paper. Dab lightly and evenly on entire project.
     
  6. Lightly spray a fine mist of Georgia Clay. Let dry.
     
  7. Spray Flat White into disposable plastic tub to form another puddle of paint. Dip sponge lightly into paint, wipe off excess and dab highlights on project. Let dry thoroughly.
     
  8. For added protection of your finished project, spray several light coats of Krylon® Matte Finish as a final step. For projects that will be used outdoors or near a window, use Krylon® UV-Resistant Matte Finish.

Notes on surface preperation:

  1. When working with unfinished wood, prepare your surface by sanding smooth and wiping clean with a tack cloth. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
     
  2. When working with bare metal, be sure surface is free of rust and oil. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
     
  3. When working with plastic, glass or ceramic, lightly sand surface with fine grain sandpaper and wipe clean with a tack cloth. This will help the paint to adhere better to these smooth surfaces. Apply a primer to further improve adhesion.
