Using Our Paint: It’s Easy!
There’s no anxiety in painting because you know you can’t mess up. If you paint a piece, and later decide you don’t like it, you can always go back and simply paint over it. It’s a great thing to know you can go back and change something.
We wanted Little Billy Goat to be easy to use for our customers. For us, it was important to have low task factors that keep it enjoyable while using it. You simply paint and seal. It’s really that easy. For high traffic areas, perhaps areas that will have a drink on it, we recommend painting, using our sealant and then doing another brush over. The whole process is kept simple, just for you.
The first step to refreshing your piece is to simply start with a clean surface. Clean your entire piece with a wet cloth to remove any dust or dirt, etc. Stir well before use. For best results, apply generously. Take your spray bottle and lightly spray the surface of your piece to allow the paint to easily move across the surface and create a smoother finish. Apply a second coat if needed to cover any spots that are not covered thoroughly. It’s best to let your piece dry completely before distressing and/or sealing. Depending on temperature and humidity, dry times will vary.
Without water, the paint creates a texture, while adding water to paint makes a smoother surface.
By adding more water, the paint will become smoother and start to turn into a wash.
Adding a lot of water makes a wash which creates a different effect.
