Ensure all surfaces to be painted are clean, dry and free from dirt, debris or any other surface contaminants. Ronseal Garden Paint is not suitable for use on plastics, cast iron or areas subjected to foot traffic, such as decking boards.
Old coating type finishes such as paints, varnishes and varnish type stains must be fully removed by sanding or with a product stripper / remover prior to painting.
For best results, prime all wooden surfaces with Ronseal All Surface Primer and Undercoat - Exterior before applying Ronseal Garden Paint.
Terracotta pots and other surfaces may need a good sanding / wire-brushing as they are often treated or glazed to protect them from rain and frost damage. These treatments will reduce adhesion of the paint to the surface.
Weathered terracotta needs to be water-bead tested. If the water beads on the surface, sanding will be required to remove the surface coating before painting. If the water soaks in to the Terracotta, then the paint can be applied directly.
Metal needs a suitable primer before painting with Ronseal Garden Paint. Use grey primer under darker colours, and white primer under lighter colours.
Remove any dust or loose material with a stiff brush before painting. This product is not suitable for walls prone to damp.
Stir thoroughly before and periodically during application to ensure a consistent finish.
