A little prep goes a long way! For optimum results, it’s always best to spend a little time assessing and prepping your piece. Ensure your piece is free of dirt, oil, and grease. If there is a wax be sure to remove with odorless solvent or mineral spirits.
As a water-based degreaser to clean a painted surface prior to applying paint. It removes oil, grease, fingerprints, stains and other contaminants, which will improve the adhesion and the look of subsequent coatings.
This is a fantastic finishing sponge for wet sanding after for a super smooth finish. It can also be used to scuff the surface and dull down the sheen and finish of your surface so the paint can glide on beautifully and have a little more “tooth” to grip onto!
The Staalmeester is the Rolls Royce of Brushes. A unique synthetic / natural bristle blend that has a short natural china bristle, blended with a longer silky synthetic bristle. The natural bristle ensures better paint absorption and the synthetic bristle component allows for a smooth, even application having minimal to no brush strokes.
Do you have a favorite brush? Well, Fusion Mineral Brush Soap will keep your bristles in optimal shape to give it that TLC that you need. It’s soft on your hands on and your bristles every time. As a bonus, this can also help clean your hands and your sink as well! It’s super gentle and natural, and very effective!
For the smoothest and most flawless finish, a microfiber roller is your best friend!
