If necessary, smooth the surface with a Presto filler and sand the dry surface. Remove sanding dust. Apply 1-2 coats of Tikkurila acrylate wall paint, such as Harmony/Feelings Interior Paint.
Previously painted surfaces:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu cleaning agent and rinse carefully with water. Allow to dry.
Remove loose paint or lacquer with a scraper. Sand hard and glossy painted or lacquered surfaces matt. Remove sanding dust. Fill holes and cracks with Presto Rapid Filler and sand filled spots.

Safety data sheet
Colour and light, together create ambience. But rarely have they come together so enchantingly and mystically as in Tikkurila's Pearl Paints and Glazes, where it is as if light has been captured inside the very colour itself. With shimmering Taika Pearl Paints and translucent Taika Glazes you can create magical spaces with dreamlike, fairytale ambiences. Silver-based Taika Pearl Paints and Glazes produce bright, pearlescent shades, while gold-based colours create warm and spicy moods.
InstructionsConsumption varies depending on the surface to be treated and its condition. Absorption is affected e.g. by the surface roughness, moisture content level of timber and porosity. For example, log surface that has been untreated for a long time takes a lot more wood finish than a new surface to be treated.
When calculating the consumption, note that the consumption for round logs is 1.5 times higher than normal. Please also note the corner joints in the surface area.
