Golden Paintworks® Lifestyle Finishes™ Glass Bead XL Texture is a uniform acrylic texture containing real glass beads. Use to add accents of jewel-like reflected light, for contemporary accents, highlights and embellishments.
Remove all surface contamination by washing with an appropriate cleaner, rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Existing peeled or checked paint should be scraped and sanded to a smooth, sound surface (See warning below). Stains from water, smoke, ink, pencil, grease, etc. should be sealed with the appropriate quality primer/sealer. If a surface is new, priming and painting with acrylic wall paint will provide the best, uniform surface for applying the Glass Bead Texture. In all cases, use of this product requires that the surface be prepared with a quality stain blocking primer to avoid support induced discoloration.
Trowel Application: For maximum clarity and strongest reflective properties, apply as a single layer of beads by spreading and ‘‘floating’’ the beads with a flat trowel. Wipe trowel edges periodically to clean and prevent build-up of dried material. Scratches from the beads may occur, but can be easily smoothed out with smaller strokes and patience.
Brush application: Thin Glass Bead XL Texture with water or Glazing Medium to increase brushability.
Coverage: Highly dependent on application technique and number of layers. Approx. 66 sq.ft./gal.
Dry Time: @ 50% RH, 77° F: Recoat in12-24 hours. Full cure and water resistance developed in 2-4 weeks. Cold weather & high humidity will slow down dry time.
Clean Up: Clean your skin and equipment immediately after use with soap and warm water. Consult with local authorities for methods of disposal.
Storage: Store in a cool/dry location @ temperatures between 45° F & 95° F. Do not allow material to freeze or be exposed to temperatures exceeding 120° F for extended periods.
