  • PrimEtch™ is an excellent primer coat for hard-to-coat interior/exterior surfaces including glass, tile, decorative sink bowls, vanity and kitchen countertops.
  • When PrimEtch™ is used to apply Custom Art Imprints™, the open tack time is 2 to 3 hours. Once the image has been embedded in the PrimEtch™, it is not necessary to seal the image. PrimEtch™ dries to a hard, glossy film.
  • PrimEtch™ may be thinned with water if necessary. Do not thin with more than 10% water.
  • PrimEtch™ dries to a clear finish and can be used without additional topcoating where hardness and durability are not an issue.
  • Clean the work surface with alcohol, then lightly sand with 220–400 grit black finishing paper.
  • Prepare the surface well and remove all dust and moisture prior to applying PrimEtch™.
  • Apply a thin even coat of PrimEtch™ to the work surface. This material may be rolled on or sprayed. Best results are achieved with a fine brush or lambs wool applicator.
  • Allow the material to dry for a minimum of 8 hours (depending on the drying conditions) or overnight.
  • Once dry, PrimEtch™ may be coated with a more durable finish such as SetCoat® or SetCoat® Clear.
  • The work surface is now ready to accept glazes, Venetian Gem™ Clear Gloss Coat, Custom Art Imprints™ or many other Faux Effects®
