Step-by-step Application  
  Step 1: Basecoat
After ensuring the surface is masked and primed for painting, apply water-based latex basecoat evenly with a 1" nap roller. Approximate coverage rate of 100-150 square feet per gallon.

Compatible Basecoats
• ProMar 200® by Sherwin-Williams
• Ultra Premium® by Valspar
• Speedhide® by PPG
• Premium Plus® by Behr
• Aura® by Benjamin Moore
• And others...
  Step 2: ColorFlakes
Immediately after applying the basecoat apply 1/16" ColorFlakes with a Wagner® PowerTex® electric hopper-blower gun. Standing approximately six feet from the wall, spray in a back and forth motion in four foot wide sections, starting each section at the bottom and working your way up the wall to ensure optimal coverage adhesion.

Recommendations
• Recommended Size: 1/16"
• Select a 3-6 color blend to match your basecoat color and compliment
any décor.
• Coverage Rate = 10-15 sq. ft. / lb.
  Step 3: Knockdown
After the basecoat has dried thoroughly for 3-4 hours, knockdown excess ColorFlakes using a nylon bristled hand brush or broom. Uncontaminated flakes may be reclaimed for future use.
  Step 4: Topcoat Apply water-based polyurethane topcoat evenly with a 3/8 " nap roller. Approximate coverage rate of 200-250 square feet per gallon. Lightly sand and add a second topcoat for increased durability.
