Step 1 of your masterpiece.
No sanding, no priming is required to apply Belle Craie Paint.
Professional refinishers know that a proper adhesion is essential to the performance of any coating. This includes paint made with chalk.
Belle Craie Surface Prep is an innovative product designed to remove dirt and neutralize grease, oil, furniture polish and other substances which impair adhesion. Many cleaners leave traces of soap, phosphates, films, etc. which may also impair adhesion. Belle Craie Surface Prep is a phosphate-free low VOC cleaner which leaves no film. Surfaces are clean and ready to paint.
Simple Application: Spray it on the surface. After one minute, wipe clean.

Allow varnish to dry for one hour before aoolication of a second coat. Two coats are recommended for most applications. Velvet Varnish may be applied to newly painted surfaces after 24 hours, and after one hour of newly glazed surfaces.
Do not use steel wool as it will leave metal shavings in your varnish. Do not stack anything on varnished surface for at least one hour after completion of final coat. If sandpaper “gums” when sanding, then the varnish has not been given enough time to dry and harden (sensitive to environmental conditions). A small amount of clean water may be used if thinning is necessary for the varnishing project. Tools, brushes, and sprayers may be cleaned with warm soapy water.
