How do I apply Earthborn interior wall paints?

First check your wall is clean, dry, sound and stable, removing any flaky material with a stiff brush. If your wall is particularly powdery, Earthborn  can be used to stabilise the surface prior to painting.

Claypaint, Lifestyle Emulsion and the Ecopro Emulsions can be applied by brush, roller or spray in the same way as conventional emulsion paint. The method of application will affect the finished texture; a roller will give most texture (the longer the roller hair the greater the texture) and a spray the least. Most people find a short pile roller provides the best finish.

How do I apply Claypaint and Lifestyle?

Claypaint and Lifestyle can be applied by brush, roller or spray in the same way as conventional emulsion. Most people find a short pile roller provides the best finish. Please note the method of application will affect the finished texture; a roller will give most texture (the longer the roller pile the greater the texture) and a spray the least.

First check your wall is clean, dry and stable, removing any flaky material with a stiff brush. If your wall is particularly powdery to touch, Earthborn Wall Glaze can be used to stabilise the surface prior to painting. Dry stains such as water stains, pen or nicotine can be treated with Earthborn Isolating Primer first to prevent stains from bleeding through the paint.

For highly absorbent surfaces such as bare plaster, apply a diluted coat of paint (80% paint diluted with 20% water), followed by 1-2 full coats as per the product instructions.

To avoid a ‘picture framing’ effect, ensure that areas of cutting in do not dry before rollering paint.

Full application details can be found on all full size paint tins and Claypaint and Lifestyle data sheets.
