Do your poorly maintained wooden shutters need a tune-up? Following this brief guide, you can bring them back to full splendor with ICA FOR YOU matt water-based enamel for wood, giving them a really nice enamelled effect, as well as an effective protection against bad weather and UV rays.
Before painting, carefully prepare the surface by sanding it with 100 grit sandpaper to remove all old paint. Complete by sanding with a 150-180 grit sandpaper, making sure to remove any impurities with a dusting brush. The wood must be clean and dry.
Now that your surface is ready, open your can of FNL matt water-based enamel for wood (for this tutorial we used FNL07 pure white), stirring it very well before use. Apply the product on the surface with a paint brush, working in long and linear movements.
Wait 2 hours (or no more than 4 hours) to allow the enamel to dry on your wooden surface. You can now apply the second coat.
If necessary, you can apply a third coat of ICA FOR YOU FNL matt water-based enamel for wood after 2 hours (or in any case not more than 4 hours) from the second coat, to give it a truly flawless effect.
