▫ Finishing creams are easy to apply thick or thin. You can also add more years down the road if the old topcoat wears away from use, frequent washing or spot cleaning.
▫ Low sheen, dead flat, and gloss finish cream are no odor non VOC’s water-based topcoats that have non-existent to minimal semi-gloss appearance.
▫ Low-sheen will impart a slight luster to a surface, while dead flat is completely matte. It can be applied with a rag, soft cloth, brush, damp sponge, or spatula. Our preferred method is cross-hatch application with a brush on walls.
▫ This solution will dry on clear (whereas finishing paint glazes will produce a tint).
Quick Tip: Dead Flat is not recommended over black color paints
♡ How can finishing creams be used?
▫ Since this is versatile and strong, this finishing cream can be applied over our eco friendly milk-painted surfaces or used to protect wood finishes by standing up to regular cleaning and scrubbing. Paint finish creams can be used on new or old surfaces, and they are an excellent second coat over milk paint colors on kitchen cabinets, tabletops, window sills, walls and trim (especially in kitchens and bathrooms).
▫ Helps to hide or enhance moldings, trims and recessed areas on decorative surfaces. A one-coat application is easy to apply with a brush (foam or bristle), rag, short pile roller, or damp cellulose sponge.
▫ High-traffic areas such as these where burnishing or marring of the paint film can occur over time can really use the extra protection to make wall paint or stained wood last longer. These will still slightly wet the pigment in the paint to make it a shade darker and can take 30 to 60 minutes to fully dry, depending on the thickness of the application.
▫ Milk Paint can be painted directly over finishing cream. These can be used between layers of Real Milk Paint as a barrier coat, to help create a nice wood grain antique look. A surface sealed with this topcoat or finish glaze will be washable after 24 hours.
Quick Tips: Finishing creams do dry quickly so a damp applicator (we prefer a brush) can be helpful. If you choose to use a finishing glaze, you may also want to seal your milk paint with the low sheen or dead flat first. This will stop the milk paint from drawing in too much color from glazes. Then use colored glazes on top of the clear cream finish.
