Remove sanding dust. Fill cracks and holes with a Presto Filler and sand the dried surface. Remove sanding dust.
Priming Paint with a suitable white or light colored Tikkurila priming or finishing paint. Taika Glow works on top of most common paint types.
Finishing Stir Taika Glow well before use. Apply the lacquer liberally with a short-napped roller meant for smooth surfaces, brush or stencil stippler. Aim to as smooth surface as possible and try to apply the lacquer evenly throughout the whole surface. Use masking tape and remove the tape immediately after painting. A stronger glow effect can be achieved with a two-coat (or several) treatment. Taika Glow surface can be protected with e.g. Parketti-Ässä Floor Lacquer or Kiva Furniture Lacquer.
Note! Verify the success of the treatment in the dark. Apply a sufficient amount of the product so that the application marks will not remain visible.
Cleaning of tools Remove excess lacquer from tools and wash them immediately with soap and water. Tikkurila Tool Cleaner is recommended for removal of slightly hardened material.
Maintenance instructions The product achieves its final durability after one month from finishing treatment. Avoid cleaning treatment during this time.
If needed, the surface can be cleaned with a neutral (pH 6-8) dish washing solution using e.g. a soft cleaning cloth. Rinse and dry the surface immediately after that.
Maintenance treatment According to the instructions from "Previously painted surface". Effect surface can be covered by painting it twice with a water-borne paint.
