Insure that the receiving surface has been properly prepared according to the Surface Preparation section of this Product Data Sheet. Tuscan Glaze is best applied on large areas using a Hudson-type sprayer or airless spray equipment. For smaller areas, Tuscan Glaze is best applied with a paint pad or, depending on the desired results, a roller, paintbrush or sponge. Job site mock-ups are required and
should represent the actual job site application techniques. Apply Tuscan Glaze evenly in light coats. If sagging or running occurs, use a sponge or paint pad to correct immediately. Watch for brush or roller lines. If brush or roller lines appear, use a damp sponge, a paint pad or rag to make them disappear before the Tuscan Glaze starts to dry. The wall may be blotted with a camelback sponge to achieve the
desired mottled appearance. Check wall throughout the application to insure that uniformity and the desired appearance is achieved.
