Read the easy painting instructions below for sure success. Note that an even base coat is a requirement for a professional surface. We always recommend a primer.
Quick guide to painting
1. Read the instructions
Always read the instructions on the can, on the maston.fi website or using the QR code on the can before you start.
2. Sanding and priming
Prepare the surface. Sand it with sand paper if necessary then wipe excess dust away with a damp cloth and let dry. If the surface is very uneven, fill it with putty, then sand and wipe.
3. Clean the surface to be painted
Clean the surface of dirt, dust and grease using e.g. a degreaser.
4. Shake the bottle
Shake the bottle for the amount of time specified in the instructions in order to mix the color evenly. Normally this is 2-3 minutes.
5. Paint a test patch
Paint a test patch in an area that will not be visible. This way you can test how suitable the product is for the surface.
6. Protect areas you are not painting
Carefully protect the areas you are not going to paint.
Check the painting distance from the pictogram on the can. The distance varies from 15-40 cm and depends on the product. It is important to follow these instructions for a successful result.
8. Adjustable nozzle
If the product has a blue adjustable nozzle, it contains a red adjuster which you can turn to change the direction of the oval-shaped spray of paint mist.
9. Several thin coats
Always begin with a very thin, gauze-like coat. Spray thin coats, from side-to-side, up-and-down, and then side-to-side again. Let the previous coat dry for 3-5 minutes until dust will no longer stick before you apply the next coat.
10. Drying time
Follow the recommended drying times and let the surface dry completely.
11. Clean the nozzle
Turn the bottle upside down and spray until only propellant gas comes out.
