DIY Project Steps

1. Clean your chosen object

Wipe the surface of your object- making sure it’s clean and dry, free of any grease, rust, or dirt.

2. Shake can

Before spraying: Shake the can for at least three minutes after the first [BP2] rattle and regularly during use.

3. Begin application

Hold can upright and spray 10 to 25cm from the surface of the vase. To ensure surface compatibility, test the spray on an unexposed area before coating the entire object. Spray with smooth, even strokes maintaining a consistent distance from the surface until the vase is evenly covered in a light mist. It is recommended to apply in one or more light misty coats, as opposed to one heavy coat.

4. Un-blocking

Prevent blocking by turning can upside down and spraying until clear and wipe front of nozzle clean.

5. Recoating

Continue to apply in a series of coats until you reach the desired coverage. Ensure the surface is touch dry in between each coat to ensure an even finish.

6. Project complete

Once your object is evenly coated, that’s it, you’re done! Your project or object should be touch dry in 10 minutes under normal conditions. Lower temperatures and high humidity will slow the drying and affect the gloss level. Create magic with Duramax.
