Yes, absolutely you can paint your dining table.
A mohair roller works well to paint a large flat surface.
Below some steps
- Make sure that the table is clean before you start painting. Clean properly with Lacquer thinners. Refer to the cleaning guide.
- Wait 20 minutes for Lacquer Thinners to dry.
Once the surface is clean and dry you can apply your colour. We would suggest you use a Mohair roller for the application of the paint to make it more even, below is a link to our video gallery. Watch the video below to see how to use this roller.
More than one coat will be necessary. Always wait in between coats for paint to dry.
Once you have finished painting allow to dry for 4 hours and then apply our clear glaze to seal the tabletop and if the table is standing outside seal the legs too.
Always allow the paint to dry for at least 4 hours before starting with the Glaze application. In coastal areas or during winter months we recommend to only start glazing the next day (leave paint to cure overnight)
- Dilute the Clear Glaze with 30% water (30ml of water for every 100ml of Glaze) or 3 parts Clear Glaze and 1-part water.
- Dampen a clean, colourless cloth with water and squeeze to remove all excess moisture.
- Dip the cloth completely in the mixture to absorb the mix and then squeeze to remove excess moisture.
- Evenly wipe onto the painted surface. Work in a well-lit room to ensure that the entire surface is covered. If streakiness or lines occurs (it is caused by the fabric/cloth) just wipe a second coat, half an hour later.
