Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be painted must be clean, dry, and free of dirt, dust, grease, oil, soap, wax, scaling paint, water soluble materials, and mildew. Remove any peeling or scaling paint and sand these areas to feather edges smooth with adjacent surfaces. Glossy areas should be dulled. Drywall surfaces must be free of sanding dust.

Application: Stir thoroughly before and during use. Apply by brush, roller, or spray. Use the same brushing techniques as you would for any low-VOC compliant interior coating. For best results, use a premium nylon/polyester brush, premium roller.  Apply paint generously from unpainted area into wet area. Ultra Spec Prep Coat Hi-Build Latex Interior Primer (580) dries faster than other acrylic paints, so avoid lap marks by maintaining a wet edge. Roll out vertical sections in 3' to 4' widths. Apply before and after filling nail holes,
