Select the wall surface you will be painting from the list below to view how to prepare and finish the surface.
Note: Refer to the PDF flowchart for a visual of the steps below:
Using a soft cloth, wipe the walls down using Resene Interior Paintwork Cleaner or mild detergent and warm water
Fill all dents, defects and holes using Selleys Rapid Filla and lightly sand
Use Selleys No More Gaps on any cracks between the walls and skirtings and/or scotias
Flat, velvet finish:
A typical dining room or bedroom will use about 4 litres.
The luxurious velvety finish of Resene Zylone 20 is the ideal paint finish for most dining rooms.
Resene Zylone 20 has an almost textural look and feel to it and could easily be mistaken for a limewashed paint finish or distemper. It imparts a particularly sophisticated and elegant look to a room when dark colours are chosen.
