INTERIOR USE ONLY SURFACE PREPARATION: Surfaces must be clean, free of moisture, grease and oil, wax, loose particles or other contaminates.

APPLICATION: STIR WELL prior to use. Pearl Effects can be applied by foam brush, bristle brush, pad applicator or spray. For large surfaces we recommend spray application to achieve a more uniform finish. Pearl Effects works best over a sealed surface. Use 1-2 coats of General Finishes High Performance to seal your project before applying General Finishes Pearl Effects. For best results sand all surfaces between coats with #320-400 grit paper or a super fine sanding pad to improve adhesion. Glossy surfaces must be sanded before applying General Finishes Pearl Effects. Apply General Finishes Pearl Effects liberally using smooth, even strokes going with the grain. Use enough material to provide a wet film. DO NOT over brush. Apply and move on. For dry brushing technique reduce Pearl Effects 5% with General Finishes Extender. Apply with a bristle brush and lightly dust the surface with Pearl Effects. For extra protection after apply Pearl Effects, seal with 1-2 coats of General Finishes High Performance. Lightly sand between coats using #320-400 grit paper or super fine sanding pad.
