What is included?  

1 kg of Gimcyn paint

1/2 L of primer


How to apply Gimcyn 

  1. Dilute the Gimcyn primer with water (300mls or roughly half pint to a litre bucket of paint) and apply it with short pile or mohair roller.
  2. Wait a few hours (2 to 3) for the primer to get dry.
  3. Stir and apply a single coat of Gimcyn by brush, with a criss-cross technique.
  4. 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.
  5. Due to the drying time, create the effect in sections, roughly 0.25 sq meter (2-3 feet) at a time.
  6. The finish will be touch dry within 30 minutes and completely dry after 8 hours!
