Protect surrounding surfaces using masking tape and paper.


Step 3

Apply Otex Akva Primer using a soft foam or mohair roller which will provide a smooth finish, and leave to dry for approx 4h.

Luja is a high performance, acrylic eggshell with mould and anti-microbial inhibitors designed to provide incredibly hard-wearing film.
