Pick a paint scheme, Paint a SureSwatch
Here’s what you will need
- SureSwatch paintable clear film
- Paint samples
- Small roller and tray
Step 1 – Apply Paint Generously
After you get your paint tester, it’s time to use Sure Swatch. With the Sure Swatch’s UNPRINTED side up, apply the paint generously in a corner-to-corner “X” pattern. Paint in a side-to-side motion and then in an up and down motion to completely cover the sheet. As a final step roll in one direction from top to bottom in a series of strokes covering the entire sheet. Let the first coat dry until it feels dry to the touch. Apply a second coat using the same method. Again, be sure to let it dry to the touch. Drying time is approximately 20 – 60 minutes depending on the surrounding temperature and humidity.
Step 2 – Try on with Your Paint Tester
While you might be tempted to make your color choice by looking down at what you have just painted, it’s important that you position Sure Swatch on your wall for viewing. After the painted Sure Swatch is dry, crack on the dotted line to remove your painted Sure Swatch. Place the Sure Swatch on the wall at approximately eye level or slightly above. (Please don’t use this product on wallpaper, recently painted surfaces, unpainted drywall or other easily peeled surfaces.)
Step 3 – Choosing Your Paint Colors
Walk a few feet back from the wall and delight in how good your sample looks and how easy it is to decide which color to go with. Once you’ve made your choice, remove Sure Swatch and discard. Sure Swatch removes easily and cleanly. Be sure to remove within 14 days of viewing.
If your color doesn’t look like the manufacturer’s color chip, the paint probably has poor covering power. Click here for directions on using the Primer Decider Scale
