  • Usage
    Properly prepared interior walls and ceilings including previously painted and primed plaster, wood, brick, drywall, cement and metal.
  • Prep
    Thoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry. Remove wallpaper and loose, peeling paint. Remove gloss from shiny surfaces. Patch cracks and spot prime. Valspar Perfect White paint can be used to prime patched areas and bare surfaces before applying the finish coat. For best results on heavily strained areas, use a coat of Valspar® Interior Multi Purpose Primer-Sealer for optimal colour accuracy and coverage. Drywall and Plaster: Fill cracks, pits and voids with patching compound. Allow new plaster to fully cure and sand smooth. Remove all sanding dust. Prime new and bare surfaces with Valspar Perfect White paint. Wood: Sand wood smooth and patch holes and imperfections with wood filler or putty and sand smooth. Remove all sanding dust. Prime new and bare surfaces with Valspar Perfect White paint. Metal: Prime bare metal surfaces with Valspar® Anti Rust Primer.
  • Application
    Stir paint thoroughly. Intermix containers to ensure uniform colour. Apply with a premium quality roller, polyester brush or airless sprayer. Paint the ceiling first, then the walls. If applying by roller, roll from dry area into wet area using firm, crisscross strokes. Finish with long, even strokes in one direction. Note: Some deep or bright colours may require an additional coat to obtain complete hide. Surface conditions and application technique can also impact coverage.
