How to use Artisan Gloss Sealer
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer using an upward action. This disperses the different ingredients that may settle. Can be applied with a brush, short napped roller, sprayer or damp sponge.
Damp Sponge Applicator Method: Using a lightly damp applicator, apply the sealer rubbing in to the surface and then finishing in long even strokes along the grain. This method will not leave brush or roller marks.
Important note: Apply one coat only over dark colours and instant rust. A second coat may leave a milky finish.
* To prevent tannin bleed in heavy tannin timbers such as mahogany, teak, rosewood and some oaks it is recommended that the surface is sealed before painting. This can be done using Artisan Quick Prep Primer or with a shellac based sealer such as Zinsser BIN.
