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 the same direction or criss-cross.
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 Pure & Original Super Cleaner. 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.
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.
