Preparation

Always ensure the surface you will be applying Craig & Rose Eggshell to is clean, dry and free from any contaminates.

Walls

  • Fill any holes or crack in the wall with a suitable filler such as Polycell Trade One Fill Filler then sand to a smooth surface.
  • New plaster will need to cure prior to application of paint we recommend allowing them to dry between four to six days. After the plaster is dry apply a mist coat.
  • Clean and lightly sand previously painted surfaces to ensure adhesion.

Woodwork

Application

Colours may vary on screens therefore we always recommend testing your chosen colour prior to application. Craig and Rose 1829 Vintage Colours are available in tester pot sizes so you can test the colour at home.

  • Stir the paint well to ensure you get a consistent colour throughout application.
  • Apply using a good quality synthetic brush, for woodwork we recommend a foam or short pile roller and for walls and ceilings use a short or medium pile roller.
  • Walls and Ceilings - Apply the edges using a brush and fill the remaining space using the roller.
  • Woodwork - You will just need a brush for most woods for larger surfaces such as sils use a 4-inch roller for best results.
  • For best results when cutting in use an angled brush or high-quality tape such as Frog Tape for Gloss and Satin Paints.
  • Craig & Rose Eggshell will require two coats, allowing 4 hours between each coat.
  • Touch dry in only 2 hours which gives minimal disruption to busy family homes.
  • The paint will be fully cured in 7 days.

Always ensure to follow the manufacturer's instructions found on the tin.

Aftercare & Storage
Always store in a cool, dry, frost free area and ensure the lid is closed.
FAQ's

Q. Is it better to use eggshell or flat matt wall paint?

A. Eggshell paints will always be more hardwearing than matt paints which makes them better for use in high traffic areas including bathrooms and kitchens. In the rest of your home it is entirely up to personal preference Eggshell paints will have a higher sheen and will reflect light more however you will not be left with shiny walls as it is still less than a silk of gloss paint. Flat matt paints will have a matt or chalky look that often help to hide imperfections.

Q. Do I need an undercoat with Craig & Rose eggshell paint?

A. This will depend on the surface you are painting, for previously painted walls you can apply the Craig and Rose Eggshell directly to the surfaces. For wood or new plaster, we recommend using Craig and Rose All Purpose Undercoat.
