Can I apply Classico with a roller?
Yes, with a lint free, 5-6 mm roller for smooth surfaces
For the old hand applied finish, we recommend applying the paint with a brush. Don't cut edges in advance and work either in same direction or criss-cross.
Should I prep the surface?

Although Classico is a no or little prep paint,
some surfaces might need extra attention. Old finishes might contain wax, grease/oil or silicone.
If that's the case (or if you’re not sure) we recommend cleaning the surface with Pure & Original Super Cleaner. Silicone needs to be sanded down. It’s recommended to roughen shiny surfaces slightly with sanding paper for maximum adhesion. Make sure your surface is free of dust and coherent.
Is Classico washable?

Yes, once chalk is cured (2 weeks) you can clean it with a warm, damp  cloth. Don't rub to prevent shiny spots. It's recommended to protect high traffic areas and  wet rooms  with our Dead Flat Ecosealer.

layers of Dead Flat Ecosealer with a brush or air-spray. Wait 12 hours in between the layers. Don’t use a roller to prevent air bubbles.
