Decorative Arts-Idea Decoupage

747 - Waterbased primer

Primes all types of support and makes any surface requiring painting with water- or solvent-based colors suitable for decoupage. This elastic, homogenous water-based preparation gives perfect coverage and is ready-to-use. It can be further diluted with water, if needed. To coat any surface, use a flat bristle brush, taking care to crisscross brushwork to make the surface to be decorated more uniform. This water-based primer improves color adhesion to the support, preventing the splotches caused by differentiated absorption on the various parts of raw surfaces

First application: 100% Maimeri Puro colour: Maimeri Puro tints are highly concentrated so some colours appear very dark when used in their pure form.

Second application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Colourless Medium, i.e. a neutral unpigmented paste. This medium is used for thinning the tints, enhancing the flow and emphasizing the depth of the thinned colour.

Third application: 10% Maimeri Puro colour + 90% Glazing Medium to emphasize the sheen of the tint and the different degree of opaqueness between the colours.

Fourth application: 50% Maimeri Puro colour + 50% Titanium White, to emphasize the undertone of the tint and highlight the concentration.
