Preparation:
NEW/UNPAINTED SUBSTRATES:
Make sure substrates are dry, clean and stable as well as free from dirt, grease, mould or any other loose materials. 
If applying to lime plaster, ensure the surface is as above and then proceed with application.
With regard to new non- lime plaster do not proceed with application until all unpainted plaster has thoroughly set and dried and has a base coat of Autentico® Primer.
 
PREVIOUSLY PAINTED AND OTHER SUBSTRATES:
Make sure substrates are dry, clean and stable as well as free from dirt, grease mold or any other loose materials. Substrates which have been painted previously with an oil or solvent base product will also need a base coat of Autentico Primer will be needed.
On wood, fleece wallpaper, glass fabric, painted surfaces with a satin and gloss finish or on all non-alkali proof paints and on gypsum boards it is worth trying a small test area in order to evaluate the adhesion. Stir carefully and sufficiently until a lump-free homogenous “paste” is obtained.
 
Application:
Stir well prior to use. When applying Autentico® Venice paint different methods can be used to obtain unique and decorative results. With the exception of the white paint colour that can also be applied with a roller or an airless paint sprayer, Autentico Venice must always be applied by means of an appropriate brush. In order to avoid dried up demarcations, large uninterrupted areas must be painted in one single application, wet on wet. Both techniques involve thin coats so do not over load your brush.
The Autentico “Classic” technique
The first layer of Autentico® Venice is applied using the appropriate brush, work in consistent arm length brush stokes vertically. Be sure to avoid hard stops with your brush as these stops can be seen on your second coat of Venice. Leave it to dry for at least 8 hours then apply the next coat the same as you did the first. A third coat could be required after another 8 hours of drying time with certain colours.

The Autentico “Cloud” technique
The first layer of Autentico® Venice is applied using the appropriate brush, this time you need to work the diagonal almost crisscross motion. Be sure to avoid hard stops with your brush as these stops can be seen on your second coat of Venice. Leave it to dry for at least 8 hours, then apply a second coat of Autentico® Venice in the same way as the first. For some colours a third layer could be required after another 8 hours of drying time, applied in the same manner for as many times a needed to you effect.
