How to Apply All That Glitters Finish
For best results, please see complete details on the label before applying finish to the wall. For optimal uniformity of the finish, each wall should be completed without stopping by the same person.
- Let the base coat dry for at least 24 hours.
- Tape off any areas where you don't want glitter with painter's tape.
- Stir the finish and pour into a paint tray. (Don't worry about the milky white color — it will dry clear.) Condition the roller thoroughly by rolling it through the finish 20 times.
Let's Get Glittering!
- Starting in the upper left corner of the wall, use the paint roller to apply the finish to a small section - approximately an 18-inch square. You don't want straight edges or perfect lines as you would with traditional paint, so roll at different angles.
Reload and Repeat!
- Reload your roller and start a new small section. For even coverage, be sure to blend it in with the previous area.
- Continue working your way across the wall until it's completed. The finish will remain wet and workable for about 5 minutes. Fill in any bare or hard-to-reach spots with your brush and smooth any ridges with the roller.
It Dries Clear - With an Incredibly Shimmery Finish!
- The All That Glitters finish dries to the touch in about 60 minutes, but leave the tape on for four hours. Then lightly run a utility knife along the edges where paint and tape meet so you can remove the tape without taking any of your sparkling masterpiece with it!
