SURFACE PREPARATION: Newly constructed surfaces should be primed with a 100% acrylic primer and allowed to fully dry. We recommend Zinsser’s Bulls Eye® WaterBase Primer/Sealer. Texture Effects will adhere to sound, clean, and dry surfaces previously painted with a low-sheen, water based paint. If unsure of the surface, prime first with Zinsser’s Bulls Eye Water-Base primer/sealer.
TINTING: Texture Effects can be tinted using Modern Masters’s ShimmerStone Color Concentrates, SkimStone ColorPaks, or universal colorants. (NOTE: do not exceed 4 fl. oz. per gallon.) Mix in colorant using a hand drill with a detachable mixing apparatus on medium speed or on a high speed shaker. (NOTE: do not shake for more than 5 minutes.)
APPLICATION: Texture Effects is used to create a wide variety of beautiful texture finished on interior walls and ceilings by using various tools and techniques. It is not intended for use on exterior surfaces. It is normally applied using a trowel and is perfect for creating raised relief, heavy distressed textures, stenciling, and to correct wall imperfections. Once dry, it does not need to be primed and can be overcoated with Modern Masters products (Metallic Paint Collection™, Metal Effects®, Decorative Painter’s Products, Venetian Plaster, ShimmerStone®, Theme Paint™, or Wildfire® Paints) or any water based or alkyd paints. DRY TIME: Dry times will vary depending on
