It is highly recommended that Autentico Versante Matt is painted in thin coats and that it is left 14 - 16 hours between coats (overnight is ideal). After painting with the final coat it is suggested that the painted item is subjected to light use for the first week to ten days. This is due to the curing process, this paint dries 'from the inside out'.
Unlike regular chalk paint It is not necessary to apply any wax or varnish to protect the completed project.

The number of coats required is dependent on the colour chosen and the surface that is being painted. As with all paints, deep colours with lots of pigments will take more coats that an off-white or grey.
