PAIN ONLY CLEAN, INTACT AND DRY SURFACES

You don't believe the talk that no preparations need to be made!

A rule of thumb could be that surfaces that are subject to heavy wear should be carefully roughened or sanded (chair seat, table top, etc.).

After cleaning, the surface is sanded.

Painting is done on a dry and clean surface.

Light surface roughening or sanding is an important step and affects the durability of the paint surface, do not skip these steps.

All paints benefit from careful preparation.
