A Property24 reader asks:
I’d like to repaint my walls, which were previously coated in Velvaglo. How long will it take for a new coat of Velvaglo to harden over the old paint?
Donovan Bezuidenhout, Plascon’s Training Practitioner, advises:
Because of the sheen level you’ll need to sand down the walls with a fine sandpaper to roughen the surface slightly.
Wipe off the dust with a clean, dry cloth and then wash the walls down with Polycell Sugar Soap. Wipe the walls clean and allow them to dry.
Finally apply two coats of Velvaglo with a drying time of 16 to 24 hours in between coats.
Please note that this time of year drying times tend to be slower due to the moisture levels in the air.
Velvaglo is suitable for kitchen and bathroom walls, and wooden and metal surfaces.
