        application and advice

        application
        Seal porous surfaces with a Polyvine varnish. Apply thinly using a good quality brush. It is important no brush marks are visible these will show though the metal leaf.

            for use with emulsion
            Designed to produce consistent cracking of latex paint. This acrylic medium creates dramatic two colour aged effects. The crackle glaze is applied over an latex base coat which will be the colour of the cracks. An latex top coat in the chosen colour is then applied over the glaze. The top coat cracks to reveal the base coat.

              drying time: 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on temperature • coverage: 80 square feet per quart


              application and advice

              application
              Choose two colours of matt latex paint, one for the base coat – the colour of the cracks, the other for the top coat. Apply the base coat and allow to dry. Seal with Polyvine Decorator’s Varnish. Mix the crackle glaze well. Apply in one direction and allow to dry. This coat must be smooth and even. If not, remove the glaze with a damp cloth and re-apply, working it into the surface with the brush before laying off to a smooth even coat. Apply the topcoat of matt emulsion, thinned with water to produce an easily flowing paint. Apply at right angles to the crackle glaze coat. Load brush with generous amount of paint and apply in one pass only, allowing the paint to flow off the brush. Do not over brush as this will mix the glaze and paint and no cracks will appear. The thickness of the topcoat determines the size of the cracks – the thicker the coat the wider the cracks.

              caution
              Always try the technique on a test piece before embarking on the project. Walls and vertical surfaces need a lot of practice.

              storage
              Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                  application and advice

                  application
                  Invert bottle to mix. Apply with a good quality brush. Craquelure performs very well between 16°c (60°f) and 21°c (70°f). Performance outside this range is impaired. Seal porous surfaces with the Top Coat before starting and allow to dry. Apply a liberal coating of Base Coat to the surface, avoiding brush marks and unevenness. Allow to dry – the milky appearance turns clear but the surface remains sticky. Apply a coating of Top Coat avoiding brush marks and unevenness. As the Top Coat dries, fine cracks will appear. If the temperature is too high, play a fan or cold hair dryer over the surface.

                  Use Polyvine Craquelure highlighter in dark or light to emphasise the craquelure effect - see swatches for effect.

                  For extra protection apply a coat of Top Coat.

                  preparation
                  All surfaces must be clean and free from dust, dirt, oil and contamination.
                  Timber: Remove oils/resins from oily hardwoods and resinous softwoods. Sand to a smooth finish and remove all dust.

                  application
                  Ensure the product is well mixed. Use a good quality synthetic brush and apply evenly using light brush strokes. Apply the first coat and allow to dry. To prime porous surfaces dilute with 10% water. Apply one or two further coats.

                  caution
                  Always apply to a test area before starting work. Do not apply over uncured oil based paint. When applied over emulsion/latex paint, it is possible that the Lacquer can draw certain stains through the paint, which would not otherwise be visible.

                  storage
                  Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                  health, safety and the environment

                  application and advice

                  preparation
                  All surfaces must be clean and free from dust, dirt, oil and contamination.

                  application
                  Ensure the product is well mixed. Apply thinly 1 or 2 coats of varnish. On porous surfaces dilute the first coat with 10% water.

                  caution
                  Always test for clarity over dark colours. Application over latex paint can draw contaminants through the paint film. Should not be applied over uncured oil based products. Test for compatibility before application.

                  storage
                  Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                  health, safety and the environment
                  Non-hazardous. Ensure good ventilation.
                  Keep out of reach of children.
                  Contact with eyes - wash immediately with warm water.
                  Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before washing in warm soapy water.
                  Do not empty into drains or watercourses.

                    drying time: 1-2 hours • recoat time: 4 hours • coverage: 150 square feet per quart


                    application and advice

                    preparation
                    All surfaces must be clean and free from dust, dirt, oil and contamination. Remove oils/resins from oily hardwoods and resinous softwoods. Treat new wood with a wood preservative to remove all traces of fungus and mould. Ensure pretreatment is compatible and completely dry, before application. Joints, end grain and glazing beads must be completely sealed. Water penetration into the timber will produce unsightly water staining and promote fungal growth beneath the clear varnish.

                    application
                    Instructions in the technical data sheet must be followed. Ensure the product is well mixed. Using a good quality brush, apply evenly using light brush strokes, following the grain of the wood. Keep a wet edge and avoid overlaps. Apply the first coat and allow to dry. On new wood dilute the first coat with 10% water.
                    Sand lightly to obtain the best finish. Apply three coats.

                    caution
                    Always apply to a test area before starting work. Care must be taken when applying in high temperature or direct sunlight as this will affect drying time.
                    Do not apply when rain is imminent. Coating life will be reduced on horizontal surfaces and where the coating is in contact with the ground or pooled water.

                    storage
                    Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                    health, safety and the environment
                    Keep out of reach of children. Non-hazardous. Ensure good ventilation.
                    Contact with eyes - wash immediately with warm water. Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before washing in warm soapy water.
                    Do not empty into drains or watercourses.

                      application and advice

                      preparation
                      All surfaces must be clean and free from dust, dirt, oil and contamination.

                      application
                      Ensure the product is well mixed. Apply 2-3 coats of varnish and brush out well. On new wood and porous surfaces dilute the first coat 10% with white spirit. Lightly sand wood in between applications to remove any raising of the grain that may have occurred.

                      caution
                      Always apply to a test area before starting work. Appearance may vary according to the colour and type of wood and the number of coats.
                      Avoid applying in cold or damp conditions as this will delay drying.

                      storage
                      Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                      health, safety and the environment
                      Flammable, keep away from sources of ignition - No Smoking. Keep out of reach of children. Use only in well ventilated areas. Ensure maximum ventilation during application and drying. Restrict interior use to large interior spaces or in confined spaces, wear a face mask which is designed to prevent inhalation of solvent vapours. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of soap and water or a proprietary skin cleanser - DO NOT USE SOLVENT, THINNERS OR WHITE SPIRIT. Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before cleaning with white spirits. Toxic to aquatic organisms and may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.
                      Do not empty into drains or watercourses.
                      Some local authorities have special facilities for disposing of waste coatings. To avoid risk of spilling, always transport and store in a secure upright position.

                        application and advice

                        application
                        Ensure that glass is clean and at room temperature – approx 20Oc (68Of).
                        Brush onto glass evenly.
                        Produce texture using a small dry sponge roller or a small synthetic sponge, working lightly across the wet surface.
                        Use masking tape and stencils to create your designs, in positive or negative. Carefully remove tape and stencil before medium dries.
                        Use only soapy water to clean glass once frosted.
                        To produce coloured frosting add Polyvine Universal Colourant or for a metallic finish add Polyvine Metallic Paint.

                        caution
                        Always try the technique on a test piece before embarking on the project.

                        storage
                        Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                          drying time: as per base mix instructions • recoat time: as per base mix instructions • curing time: as per base mix instructions • coverage: as per base mix instructions


                          application and advice

                          preparation
                          Ensure product is well mixed and that all surfaces are clean and free from grease, oil, dirt and contaminants. Read the instructions and warnings carefully on the product you are mixing the glitter into before starting.

                          application
                          Add the glitter gradually to your chosen paint or varnish while stirring slowly and thoroughly. We recommend 75g of glitter per 2.5L of paint or varnish, though you can choose to add more or less depending on the coverage you require. Use a smooth/gloss roller for best results and even distribution of glitter. The glitter will achieve its full effect when the paint or varnish is dry. We recommend trying on a test area first.

                          caution
                          We recommend familiarising yourself with the effect on a small test area before starting work. The glitter may settle in the mix if left too long before application.

                          storage
                          Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                          health, safety and the environment
                          Keep out of reach of children. Read the instructions and warnings carefully on the product you are mixing the glitter into before starting. Contact with eyes – wash immediately with warm water. Do not empty excess mixed product into drains or watercourses.

                          drying time: 30-60 minutes • recoat time: 1-2 hours • curing time: 16 hours in ideal conditions. Allow 48 hours before heavy use. • coverage: 100-200 square feet per quart


                          application and advice

                          preparation
                          Thoroughly sand in the direction of the grain to remove all traces of old finishes and dirt, oil and contamination. Old floors can be impregnated with wax and grease - this will cause failure and must be completely removed. On new wood or if the old finish is in good condition, lightly sand to provide a key. Thoroughly clean after sanding.

                          application
                          Ensure the product is well mixed. Apply 3 coats of varnish. On new wood and porous surfaces dilute the first coat 50% with water. Lightly sand wood in between applications to remove any raising of the grain that may have occurred.

                          caution
                          Always apply to a test area before starting work. Appearance may vary according to the colour and type of wood and the number of coats.
                          Do not apply over uncured oil paints.

                          storage
                          Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application. Do not use below 5 degrees C.

                          health, safety and the environment
                          Non-hazardous. Ensure good ventilation.

                          Contact with eyes - wash immediately with warm water.
                          Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before washing in warm soapy water.
                          Do not empty into drains or watercourses.

                          application and advice

                          preparation
                          Ensure all surfaces are sound, clean, dry and free from rust and contamination. Lightly abrade previously painted surfaces before application to provide a key. Using a similar base coat colour will greatly increase the metallic covering power.

                          application
                          Ensure the product is thoroughly mixed. Do not shake. Try a small test area first. Apply 2-3 coats as required with a good quality brush. Roller and spray application - refer to technical data. On porous surfaces dilute the first coat with 10% water.

                          caution
                          Light reflection will accentuate brush/roller marks and imperfections in the background. The covering ability of this paint will vary with the colour. It is essential to do a test area before application. High temperatures or direct sunlight will affect working time.
                          Do not apply when rain is imminent.

                          storage
                          Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                          health, safety and the environment
                          Non-hazardous. Ensure good ventilation. Keep out of reach of children.
                          Contact with eyes - wash immediately with warm water. Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before washing in warm soapy water.

                            drying time: Base coat - 24 hours minimum. Scumble coat - 24 hours. • coverage: 150-200 square feet per quart depending on technique, when mixed with colourant


                            application and advice

                            application
                            Apply acrylic eggshell or alkyd undercoat in a colour suitable to create the desired effect and allow to dry for a minimum of 24 hours. It is recommended that the scumble is thinned with white spirit to ensure it’s applied in a relatively thin film. The appropriate viscosity will depend on the technique to be used. Colour your Scumble with Polyvine Woodgrain Oil Colourant, most oil based paints, or universal stainers. The use of a little white paint will stabilise delicate colours. Stir thoroughly. Brush the coloured Scumble over the base coat. Create the desired decorative effect by breaking the surface with a crumpled rag, bag, sponge or a Polyvine tool or brush. When the glaze is completely dry, seal with a coat of Polyvine Extra Pale Varnish.

                            caution
                            Always test adhesion and the application of the effect on a trial area before starting.
                            Low temperature, poor ventilation and high film thickness will cause delayed final drying. Avoid applying in cold damp conditions as this will also delay final drying.
                            Scumble is prone to fading when exposed to strong sunlight for long periods. Scumble will turn dark if starved of light eg behind pictures etc. and is susceptible to severe yellowing in high temperatures.

                            storage
                            Store in a cool, well ventilated area. Keep tin tightly closed.
                            Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                            health, safety and the environment

                            Use only in well ventilated areas. Ensure maximum ventilation during application and drying. Restrict interior use to large interior spaces. In confined spaces, wear a face mask which is designed to prevent inhalation of solvent vapours.
                            Avoid contact with skin and eyes. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of soap and water or a proprietary skin cleanser - DO NOT USE SOLVENT, THINNERS OR WHITE SPIRIT.Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before cleaning with white spirits.
                            Toxic to aquatic organisms and may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment. Do not empty into drains or watercourses. Some local authorities have special facilities for disposing of waste coatings. To avoid risk of spilling, always transport and store in a secure upright position. Cloths contaminated with uncured scumble may self ignite without warning. Dispose of safely.
                            Lay out flat in single layers to dry out or wash in soapy water.

                              drying time: Base coat - 24 hours minimum. Scumble coat - 24 hours. • recoat time: 1-5 days • coverage: 100-200 square feet per quart when mixed with colourant


                              application and advice

                              application
                              Ensure that Scumble is well mixed. Select base coat colour in vinyl silk emulsion/satin latex or acrylic semi gloss/eggshell.
                              Apply base coat and allow to dry for a minimum of 24 hours with ventilation. For maximum open time seal with Polyvine Decorators Varnish. Colour your Scumble with Polyvine Universal Acrylic Colourant, mixing thoroughly. Brush or roller the coloured Scumble liberally over the base coat. Create the desired decorative effect by breaking the surface with a crumpled rag, bag, sponge or a Polyvine tool or brush.

                              caution
                              Working time - the time that the glaze remains wet and able to create a pattern. To obtain the maximum working time - up to an hour - apply Scumble liberally in cool conditions on a completely non-porous base coat. Thickness of Scumble, temperature and humidity affect the working time.
                              In temperatures above 21ºc/70ºf, or for longer working time, use Tropical Scumble. Low temperature or high humidity increases drying time. Air movement is essential for faster drying.
                              Coverage/thickness of Scumble will affect drying time.

                              storage
                              Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                              Non-hazardous. Ensure good ventilation.
                              Keep out of reach of children. Contact with eyes - wash immediately with warm water. Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before washing in warm soapy water. Do not empty into drains or watercourses.

                                    preparation
                                    Do not use in temperatures below 5°c/40°f or in very high humidity. Stone and brick protector should be used as supplied, without dilution, by brush, spray or roller.

                                    For general applications on masonry, brickwork and stone, a single application will be sufficient.

                                    caution
                                    Always test on a trial area before application. Apply evenly and do not allow to pool in crevices. Test for clarity over dark colours.
                                    NOTE: A chemical reaction could take place on some substrates such as glass, glazed surfaces, lead or aluminium. Mask these materials before application. In case of contact, rinse thoroughly with water immediately.

                                    storage
                                    Store in unopened containers in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                                      drying time: Base coat - 24 hours minimum. Scumble coat - 24 hours. • recoat time: 1-5 days • coverage: approximately 100-200 square feet per quart


                                      application and advice

                                      application
                                      Ensure that Scumble is well mixed. Select base coat colour in vinyl silk emulsion/satin latex or acrylic semi gloss/eggshell.
                                      Apply base coat and allow to dry for a minimum of 24 hours with ventilation. For maximum open time seal with Polyvine Decorators Varnish. Colour your Scumble with Polyvine Universal Acrylic Colourant, mixing thoroughly. Brush or roller the coloured Scumble liberally over the base coat. Create the desired decorative effect by breaking the surface with a crumpled rag, bag, sponge or a Polyvine tool or brush.

                                      caution
                                      Always test adhesion and the application of the effect on a trial area before starting.
                                      Low temperature or high humidity increases drying time. Air movement is essential for faster drying.
                                      Coverage/thickness of Scumble will affect drying time.

                                      storage
                                      Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                                        application and advice

                                        preparation
                                        All surfaces must be clean and free from dust, dirt, oil and contamination.

                                        application
                                        On new wood and porous surfaces dilute the first coat 10% with water. Lightly sand wood in between applications to remove any raising of the grain that may have occurred. If a very high level of durability and stain resistance is required, apply one or two coats of clear satin wax finish varnish and one or two coats of clear dead flat wax finish varnish.

                                        caution
                                        Always apply to a test area before starting work.
                                        Too thick a coating, or pooling in crevices, will dry with a white haze.
                                        Appearance may vary according to the colour and type of wood and the number of coats.
                                        Protect the finish from water and steam for five days after application.

                                        storage

                                        preparation
                                        All surfaces must be clean and free from dust, dirt, oil and contamination. Remove oils and resins from oily hardwoods and resinous softwoods. Sand to a smooth finish and remove all dust.

                                        application
                                        Ensure product is well mixed. Pour into a suitable container and mix with other colour if required. Apply generously with a good quality brush, working with the grain and keeping a wet edge. Wipe off any excess quickly to get an even finish.

                                        caution
                                        Different woods and woodgrains will alter the appearance of the wood colour. Apply to a test area prior to application.
                                        Polyvine Wood Dye seals the surface but for added protection apply Polyvine Wood Varnish, Polyvine Heavy Duty Wood Varnish, Polyvine Heavy Duty Floor Varnish, Polyvine Dead Flat Floor Varnish or Polyvine Exterior Varnish.

                                          application and advice

                                          preparation
                                          New timber should be clean, non-oily and thoroughly dry. Remove all old coatings to bare wood. If the timber is not pressure treated apply an appropriate wood preservative. Instructions in the technical data sheet must be followed. Stir thoroughly.

                                          application
                                          Apply a thin even coat, work the oil into the grain of the wood. Brush out well. When dry (minimum 12 hours), apply a second coat. Use a good quality brush. Do not apply below 5° C.

                                          caution
                                          Always apply to a test area before starting work. Do not apply when rain is imminent. Timbers containing high natural oils, e.g. Teak and Iroko, may inhibit drying and cause impaired adhesion. Wiping surface with methylated spirit will assist adhesion. Application rollers, sponges and pads, or clothes soaked in this product, may spontaneously combust if left. Dispose of after soaking in water.
                                          Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.

                                          storage
                                          Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                                          health, safety and the environment
                                          Keep out the reach of children. If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show this container or label. Use only in well ventilated areas.

                                            application and advice

                                            preparation
                                            All surfaces must be clean and free from dust, dirt, oil and contamination. Remove oils/resins from oily hardwoods and resinous softwoods. Treat new wood with a wood preservative to remove all traces of fungus and mould. Ensure pre-treatment is completely dry before application. Joints, end grain and glazing beads must be completely sealed. Water penetration into timber will produce unsightly water staining and promote fungal growth.

                                            application
                                            Instructions in the technical data sheet must be followed. Ensure the product is well mixed. Using a good quality brush, apply evenly using light brush strokes, following the grain of the wood. Keep a wet edge and avoid overlaps. Apply the first coat and allow to dry. On new wood dilute the first coat with 10% water. Sand lightly to obtain the best finish. Apply three coats.

                                            caution
                                            Always apply to a test area before starting work. Care must be taken when applying in high temperature or direct sunlight as this will affect drying time. Do not apply when rain is imminent. Coating life will be reduced on horizontal surfaces and where the coating is in contact with the ground or pooled water.

                                            storage
                                            Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.

                                            health, safety and the environment
                                            Keep out of reach of children. Non-hazardous. Ensure good ventilation. Contact with eyes - wash immediately with warm water. Remove excess from tools and mixing vessels before washing in warm soapy water.
                                            Do not empty into drains or watercourses.

                                              application and advice

                                              preparation
                                              New timber should be clean, non-oily and thoroughly dry. Remove all old coatings to bare wood. If the timber is not pressure treated apply an appropriate wood preservative.

                                              application
                                              For best results use a clean, lint free cloth. Apply a thin even coat in the direction of the grain, work the oil into the grain of the wood ensuring complete saturation of the timber. When dry (minimum 12 hours), apply a second coat. Do not apply below 5° C.

                                              caution
                                              Always apply to a test area before starting work. Timbers containing high natural oils, e.g. Teak and Iroko, may inhibit drying and cause impaired adhesion. Wiping surface with methylated spirit will assist adhesion. Application rollers, sponges and pads, or clothes soaked in this product, may spontaneously combust if left. Dispose of after soaking in water.
                                              Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.

                                              storage
                                              Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.
