Ex­pert ad­vice

Home Paint It - - MAKEOVER -

Make sure there’s no dust, dirt, oil or grease on your sur­face, says Du­lux ex­pert Nonku­l­uleko Mcunu ( be­low). Shiny ar­eas must first be sanded; then you can ap­ply one coat of Du­lux Su­per­grip All Sur­face Primer – which is ideal for sur­faces that don’t need to work too hard, such as cup­board doors. This is not rec­om­mended for work­tops. Wait un­til the Su­per­grip has dried then ap­ply two coats of wa­ter-based Du­lux Pearl­glo enamel to the cup­board doors. Both prod­ucts can be ap­plied with a pres­sure sprayer (not an air sprayer – ask your hard­ware store), brush or roller. If you pre­fer a roller, use a sponge roller – it gives a smoother fin­ish.
