Vintage Bird Silk Eggshell Clear Coat | The Vintage Bird
New to our Vintage Bird Paint line up of Prep & Finish products is this Silk Clear Coat in an Eggshell finish.
It's a beautiful top coat that dries to a subtle sheen. It won't make your matte painted furniture look too shiny, yet just provides a very gentle level of satin finish.
Silk Clear Coat is a premium acrylic based sealer, and cures to provide an extremely tough and durable surface which is chip and moisture resistant.
Our Eggshell Clear Coat can be applied in the following ways:
- with a good quality, flat, nylon bristled brush like our F40 Cling On brush. Brush in light, long strokes to create a smooth finish.
- with a dampened, lint free cloth folded over in to a square to provide a crease fee surface and then wiped over the painted finish in long, gentle wipes.
- a good quality foam sponge, using the same technique as above for application.
Only needs 1 or 2 light coats. Multiple, or thickly applied coats may result in a milky appearance, especially over darker colours. Allow to dry thoroughly between coats.
You can also use the Eggshell Clear Coat tinted for a final coat to provide a more subtle sheen to your painted surfaces if using a matt finish paint such as our Vintage Bird Furniture Paint. Add 1 part Clear Coat to 3 parts paint and mix well.
This is also an excellent medium for sealing decoupage, sealing over stencils and rub on transfers and for image transfer techniques.
Comes in two handy sizes - 120ml for decor and craft projects, and 500ml for furniture painting..
