Taika - Pearl Paint
Standard color Copper: 0.1 l, 0.225 and 1 l
Methods: brush (synthetic), effect roller, spray. Use brush or effect roller to create different surface patterns.
For example conventional spray: nozzle size 1.8mm, thinning up to 40 % with water.
On spray application always make a test spraying.
Clean new surfaces carefully of dirt and dust, to ensure the best possible adhesion.
Treat knots with Oksalakka knotting lacquer. Prime with Helmi Primer/Feelings Furniture Primer. New clean wooden surfaces in good condition can also be treated directly with Taika Pearl Paint.
Metal surfaces should be primed with Rostex Super or Rostex Super Akva anti-corrosion primer.
If necessary, smooth the surface with a Presto filler and sand the dry surface. Remove sanding dust. Apply 1-2 coats of Tikkurila acrylate wall paint, such as Harmony/Feelings Interior Paint.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu cleaning agent and rinse carefully with water. Allow to dry.
Remove loose paint or lacquer with a scraper. Sand hard and glossy painted or lacquered surfaces matt. Remove sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks with Presto Rapid Filler and sand filled spots. Prime like unpainted surfaces. Please note: use Otex primer on surfaces covered with nitrocellulose lacquer.
Sand hard and glossy surfaces matt. Remove sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks with Spakkeli or Presto Filler and sand the dry surfaces. Remove sanding dust. Prime like unpainted surfaces.
Furniture, etc.: Apply two coats of Taika Pearl Paint by brushing, rolling or spraying. On large surfaces, it is worth first applying with a roller and then smoothing it with a brush. Use a high-quality synthetic-fibre brush. The pearlescent effect is beautifully accentuated in the brush strokes.
Wall surfaces/effect painting: On wall surfaces, Taika Pearl Paint works best as a limited effect surface, whereby part of the wall paint used as a 'primer' is left visible. From the Taika colour card, you will find colours for wall paints that match Taika Pearl Paint. Apply Taika Pearl Paint with a roller in areas of about 1m² at a time, and, if desired, immediately create effects using different effect rollers, brushes or sponges.
A trial painting on thick cardboard is recommended.
We recommend that you protect the skirtings carefully with masking tape. Remove the masking tape immediately after painting. If you use a brush, work with small areas and finish immediately with a roller. In that way, border areas are not so easily visible. Apply two coats of Taika Pearl Paint, but in effect painting, only one.
Painting large, smooth, even surfaces with Taika Pearl Paint requires skill and experience, but such methods as criss-cross brushing or rolling also work for beginners, even on larger wall surfaces.
Taika Pearl Paint is also excellent for patterning with stencils.
Further ideas and more detailed instructions can be found in the Taika Guide and colour card and Effect Painting Guide.
After painting the surfaces must be handled carefully for a few weeks time, because the paint will achieve its final hardness and durability in normal conditions after 1 month. If the surface must be cleaned soon after painting, clean the surface lightly with soft brush, cloth or mop.
Taika Pearl Paint VOC max. 200 g/l.
