Walls with Dulux Wash&Wear +PLUS Anti-Bac

  1. Follow the preparation steps on the back of the can. Dulux® 1Step® Prep can be used for a prep coat (in Western Australia we suggest PRECISION® Sealer Binder).
  2. Using Dulux Wash&Wear +PLUS Anti Bac, start by cutting in around the edges of the wall with a high quality synthetic brush. These are areas the roller cannot easily reach.
  3. Using a 9mm or 12mm nap synthetic roller, load roller in the tray with a reasonable amount of paint.
  4. Start rolling the wall in an 'M' pattern. Start closest to the natural light source. Continue over the same section until the wall is evenly covered.
  5. Using an unloaded roller begin in the top left corner of your wall and gently let the roller roll down to the baseboards in a straight line with no pressure. A lightness of touch will prevent new roller marks from forming. Repeat this action, only this time slightly overlap your last movement so your roller rubs away the line created by the previous stroke. Continue this across the area you have painted. This is called laying off.
  6. Reload your roller and repeat until the wall is complete.
  7. Allow the first coat to dry and repeat the total process again with a second coat.

Windows with Aquanamel Semi Gloss

  1. Follow the preparation steps on the back of the can.
  2. Begin by taping around the fireplace, window or trim with painter's masking tape.
  3. Using Aquanamel Semi Gloss, start by cutting in using a high quality synthetic brush at the top and bottom of the edges of the trim, then finish off the middle.
  4. Apply paint to the trim using short, horizontal brush strokes. Repeat the motion for about a metre.
  5. Smooth over the painted section with long brush strokes. Do not reload the brush when you do this. Don't brush it too much - a few strokes should be enough to smooth the surface.
  6. Repeat this process until complete. Allow to dry, then give the surface a light sand with 400 grit sandpaper and repeat for a second coat.

Note: With windows it is recommended to paint the inner window sections first then move to the outer trim. And remember, always keep windows open as they dry and ensure to move them constantly to prevent them from sticking together.

Ceiling & Cornice with Dulux Ceiling White +PLUS Kitchen&Bathroom

  1. Follow the preparation steps on the back of the can.
  2. Begin by cleaning your ceiling. Remove cobwebs with a clean broom and wash the area with Selleys® Sugar Soap.
  3. Tape around cornices, edges and any down lights.
  4. Using Dulux Ceiling White +PLUS Kitchen&Bathroom and a 10-15mm nap synthetic roller, paint just like a vertical wall, begin by cutting-in where the roller won't reach. Using a paint brush, paint around down lights and edges to create a border.
  5. Once you've loaded your roller evenly, begin in one corner and move fluidly in a parallel motion. For best results, work in 1 metre sections painting across and then down. Roll as far into the previously brushed sections as possible.
  6. While the paint is still damp, begin laying off the paint. This is a crucial step in achieving a smooth and consistent finish. To lay off: Using an unloaded roller, begin in the top left corner of your ceiling and gently pull towards you in a straight line with no pressure. A lightness of touch will prevent new roller marks from forming. Repeat this action and slightly overlap your last movement so your roller rubs away the line created by the previous stroke.
  7. If your ceiling requires two coats, wait two hours for it to dry and then repeat steps 4-6.
