  • Old World Finishing Paint has multiple uses:
    • Perfect when applied as a pre-stain wood sealer.
    • Perfect primer as it sands to a “like glass” smooth finishing surface.
    • Accepts the stain; does not repel it.
    • Tint-able with FauxCrème Colors™.
    • Perfect as a base coat for faux wood finishing.
    • Perfect for wood cabinet and furniture refinishing.
    • Perfect material for spot repairing of damaged wood finishes.
  • Mix thoroughly before each use.
  • Always make a sample to ensure the desired result.
  • Coverage varies according to application techniques
  • Prepare the work surface by stripping back any existing coatings to raw wood.
  • Sand the wood surface smooth with 220-grit sandpaper and remove all dust; apply clear seal coat and let dry (optional).
  • Apply Old World Finishing Paint™ using a brush or staining pad applicator with smooth even 24″ strokes.
  • Cover the entire work surface with Old World Finishing Paint™. Wait a few minutes and then wipe off any excess material.
  • Let dry completely. In warm dry conditions roughly 30 minutes, in damp and cool conditions cure time may take as long as 4 hours.
  • Several coats of Old World Finishing Paint™ may be applied to create very deep color finish. Layering different tinted colors of Old World Finishing Paint™ during the application process can customize the color.
  • Since Old World Finishing Paint™ has reversible characteristics, it can be re-activated with water once it has dried. If “lap-lines” exist, reactivate Old World Finishing Paint™ with water and use cheesecloth to feather these spots to a smooth and even finish. Let dry.
  • Once the surface is completely dry, lightly sand with 220 – 320 grit sandpaper, and then, apply a topcoat of AquaGard™ or other topcoat sealant.
  • V.O.C. Compliant
  • Low Odor
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Do not apply in temperatures below 55°F, or in damp, cold or humid conditions.
  • Technical product- training required to purchase through Faux Masters Studio.
