D.I.Y. paint supplies you'll need

Paint preparation

Dulux Renovation Range Cabinet Doors requires a clean surface to adhere. All grease and dirt contaminations MUST be removed, or the paint will not adhere and will peel or flake off.

For previously painted surfaces:

1. Scrub down all areas with Selleys Sugar Soap and rinse with clean water to remove any dirt, oil or grease. Use a plastic scouring pad on heavily contaminated surfaces. Repeat this process     using clean water, at least twice. 

    IMPORTANT: Do not use abrasive cleaning detergents.

2. Mask as required uding a good quality painters tape.

3Completely remove any loose and flaking paint. Fill any cracks or holes with a suitable hard epoxy-based filler such as Selleys Knead- IT Aqua. 

4. Sand glossy and semi-gloss finishes to a dull flat finish using p400 paper before coating. 

5. Use a clean damp cloth to remove any dust. 

Painting tip: When painting over dark coulours or timber with white or a light colour, you may require more than two coats, so make sure you calculate how much paint you need before you start your project.

 

Kitchen, bathroom and laundry cabinets:

Including laminate and varnished timber. Remove doors for easy coating of edges and door surrounds. Follow preparation as per previously painted surfaces above. If there are any breaks or scratches in the coating, apply Dulux PRECISION Stain, Smoke & Odour Blocker spray pack before topcoat.

Wooden cabinet doors and kick boards

Follow preparation as per Previously Painted surfaces above. Apply Dulux Renovation Range Plastic & Laminate Primer before topcoat application.

 

Paint application

Topcoat:

1. Cut in as necessary using a 38–50mm high quality angled sash cutter brush.

2. Coat surface using a 4mm nap 100mm wide microfibre roller.

3. Lay off. Once each section is coated, gently go over the surface in the same direction with an unloaded roller using minimal pressure. This will give a smooth consistent finish.

Clear coat

For best finish on cabinet door areas apply Dulux Renovation Range Clear Coat as the final coating. This will add a layer of protection to the Dulux Renovation Range topcoat.
