How to apply Gimcyn Chroma

  2. Dilute the Gimcyn Chroma primer with water 30% of water (0,5 l of primer with 150ml water or 1l of primer with 300mls water) and apply it with a short pile or mohair roller.
  3. Wait a few hours (2 to 3) for the primer to get dry.
  4. Stir and apply a single coat of Gimcyn Chroma by brush, with a criss-cross technique.
  5. Leave as it is for a brushed effect or, after a few minutes of leaving the paint to dry, move the texture (grain) of the paint with a decor tobacco sponge to create a distressed look.
  6. Due to the drying time, create the effect in sections, roughly 0.25 sq meter (2-3 feet) at a time.
