Can I apply Classico with a roller?
 
Yes, with a  lint free, 5-6 mm roller for smooth  surfaces
 
For the old hand applied finish, we recommend applying the paint with a brush. Don't cut edges in advance and work either in same direction or criss-cross.
Tools
Should I prep the surface?

Although Classico is a no or little prep paint,
some surfaces might need extra attention. Old finishes might contain wax, grease/oil or silicone.
If that's the case (or if you’re not sure) we recommend cleaning the surface with mineral spirits or TSP.  Silicons need to be sanded down.
It’s recommended to roughen shiny surfaces slightly with sanding paper for maximum adhesion. Make sure your surface is free of dust and coherent.
Surfaces
Is Classico washable?

Yes, once chalk is cured (2 weeks) you can clean it with a warm, damp cloth. Don't rub to prevent shiny spots. It's recommended to protect high traffic areas and wet rooms  with our Dead Flat Ecosealer.
