Instructions

Step 1

Before painting, carefully prepare the surface by sanding it with 150-180 grit sandpaper and remove any impurities with a dusting brush.

Step 2

Now that the surface is ready, open the IMV impregnating agent can of the color you prefer and stir the product very well: this avoids differences in concentration and consistency. You can even choose different colors for a more vibrant result. Use the paint brush to apply the impregnating agent on the wood, working in fluid and continuous movements and going with the grain.

Step 3

Have you already applied the first coat of product? You can already see what your final result will be, isn't it impressive? We suggest to wait for at least 1-2 hours before applying the second coat. This product offers a vibrant and long-lasting metallic effect.
