Coverage:

  • 2.5 l of the paint container is enough for up to 35 m2.

  • In order to achieve a durable finish, at least 2 layers are required, so with a 2.5l can of paint, you can paint about 17.5m2 twice, no porous surfaces.

  • In the case of new plastering, the industry standard guideline is to initially apply a thin layer of mist when spray painting, in which case Frenchic wall paint can be thinned with clean tap water up to a maximum of 10%.

  • Porous and uneven surfaces affect coverage and paint flow and may require additional layers.

  • If the shade difference between the surface and the selected shade is large, additional layers may be required.

  • Unmixed paint does not cover well, read more work instructions in Painting instructions.

Preparation:

  • Make sure that the surfaces are in a suitable condition for painting - clean, dry, wax-free, grease-free and free of other substances and in good condition.

  • Make the necessary preparations and protection well in advance before starting work.

  • Remove loose or flaking old paint.

  • Wash dirty surfaces with Sugar Soap , clean the surface, rinse and dry thoroughly.

  • Roughen the surface by hand or machine sand.

  • Wipe off the dust and paint on a clean and dry surface!

  • Watch the Finnish subtitled video about Preparations.

  • Be careful when opening the lid of the can - we recommend using the Frenchic paint can opener .

  • Mix the paint thoroughly with a wide tool before the painting project and during the long painting project.

Painting, paint drying and hardening:

  • Use only clean, intact and high-quality tools for painting; brush or roller.

  • Also suitable for spray painting - thin about 10-15% (depending on your device) with clean tap water and apply the required number of layers.

  • The paint surface reaches its final hardness in 2 weeks under normal conditions. Handle the freshly painted surface with care until curing is complete.

  • Avoid scratching and damaging the floor of the counter-paint, and avoid walking on the completely painted area for 4 hours after painting and then without shoes for the next 7 days. Also, try to keep pets' paw nails away from the freshly painted area during the paint's drying and curing process. Do not let the surface get wet for at least a week. Continue treatment carefully for up to 3 weeks. In the future, treat your painted floor with non-scratch cleaning tools.

Storage and cleaning:

  • Always close the lid of the paint jar tightly after use.

  • Protect the paint can from needles, pollen and other debris when painting outside

  • Clean spills immediately with warm water.

  • Wash the brushes in warm soapy water immediately after use.

  • Do not store paint cans in a place where the paint can be exposed to moisture, frost, freezing or high temperatures.

Instructions for choosing a shade:

  • We strive for the best possible accuracy with the shade models on our pages. However, we cannot always guarantee perfect color reproduction, as shades may reproduce differently due to different devices, screen types and device settings. Additionally, colors may appear differently in the home due to lighting and environment, and may appear differently depending on the texture and porosity of the surface. The best way to choose a shade is to visit a Frenchic retailer to see the shades live or order a small 250ml sample jar or 10ml sample pack and try the paint yourself at home.

    • Make sure you reserve enough paint to complete the project. Standard industry advice is that if you need more than one can of paint, make sure they are from the same batch (batch number) or, if that is not possible, mix the paint batches before painting to ensure a consistent end result.

    • One layer of paint or thinned paint can have a detrimental effect on durability. Porous and uneven surfaces, such as fiberglass wallpaper or raw board, usually require a little more paint than in the instructions. All Frenchic series paints are painted at least twice. Check the shade only when dry, after two layers according to the instructions.

      Remember that the nature of colors changes depending on the lighting and the adjacent color. The color repeats differently also on horizontal or vertical surfaces. The mixing of the paint and the color of the base also affect coverage and coverage.
