Sealing wood is an important "First-Step" in the painting process. Grain rises when paint or water, etc. is applied to raw wood. Sealing and sanding your wood first solves this problem and one coat of First-Step is all that is necessary!
J.W. etc. First-Step is non-toxic, water based and odorless when dry. Dries in just minutes (never gels). After using FIRST-STEP you may stain with oil or acrylic stain. FIRST-STEP eliminates warping and seals wood-knots.
Mix First-Step with the paint of your choice for first coat coverage. Simply mix 1/3 First-Step and 2/3 any brand of acrylic paint. This leaves a beautiful linen like base coat.
It's so easy to use. Apply with a sponge or brush, let stand for approximately 20 minutes , or until dry-to-touch, then proceed to sand and tack. Clean up is easy with water.
FIRST-STEP is perfect for any fabric covered project, too.
