1. FIRST STEPS
Begin by wiping the surface of the wall clean. If the surface requires a deeper clean, use Tikkurila Maalipesu cleaning agent to remove unwanted dirt and leave it to dry. Lay down dust sheets to protect the floorspace and cover mouldings and sockets with masking tape. Use sandpaper for sanding glossy painted surfaces until they are matt and remove any sanding dust.
If the surface has already been painted and is a darker colour than your final finish, apply one coat of Optiva Matt 5 to your final colour. For previously unpainted surfaces, apply a coat of Optiva Primer and apply 1-2 coats of Optiva Matt 5, tinted with your final colour.
