How to prep walls for painting
See the 555 Technical Data Sheet for full details, however in brief:
For previously painted walls
- Remove flaking and unstable paint. Fill any cracks with Auro 329 Natural Wall Filler.
- Wash down and clean the wall with Auro 435 Natural Sugar Soap.
- For surfaces that paint doesn't stick to easily and in situations where stains are coming through the walls, you might want to consider a using a Stain Block - either Auro 505 Fine Stain Block or Auro 506 Textured Stain Block.
For newly plastered walls
You can prime walls with:
- a "Mist" coat of this paint (Auro 555 diluted with a maximum of 10% water), or
- a mist coat of AURO 321 Natural Economic Emulsion White, or
- on highly or irregularly absorptive substrates we recommend priming with AURO 301 Natural Plaster Primer.
