Variations on a theme.
Create numerous color combinations with any of our ProFaux Stonewash Pigments.

Application: Thickness does affect the Pro-Venetian Base products. Thicker applications will take longer to dry and may reveal cracking. May be applied with tools such as a spatula and trowel. Coverage: Varies widely depending upon application method: 75-175 sq.ft. per gallon.

Drying Time: Allow 2 hours to overnight, depending on film thickness (68 degrees @ 65% RH).

Clean Up & Disposal: Use hot water for application equipment. Do not dispose of any product in sewers, waterways or municipal garbage. Allow waste product to harden before disposal. If liquid disposal is necessary, contact your local municipality or paint store for instructions.
