Preparation
Normal painting procedure applies i.e. surfaces to be painted should be dry, grease free, dust free and sound. All existing coats that are water-soluble, such as whitewash or some older types of distemper must be washed off before painting. Ideally wash down other surfaces thoroughly. Remove loose particles of old paint with a brush or scraper. Gloss paints or lacquers must be sanded. Treat any gritty or inherently dusty surfaces with Holzweg/Volvox Silicate Primer before applying the emulsion to stabilise the surface.

Colour Mixing
A wide range of natural colours can be obtained by adding Holzweg / Volvox Natural Earth and Mineral Pigments. The pigment should be pre-soaked in water before being added to the emulsion. Simply pour the desired amount of pigment in to a jam jar, or similar container with a lid, add enough water to make a pigment solution and shake to ensure that all the pigment is soaked. Leave this mixture for at least 5 minutes then add to the emulsion and stir in well. The tinted emulsion is now ready to use.

Application
Apply the emulsion with a brush, roller or spray gun in a thin, even coat. Spread it evenly in all directions. Thick coats should be avoided. For the scrubbable, on average a minimum of two coats is recommended for even, solid coverage. For the washable, on light-coloured surfaces one coat is normally enough. On very absorbent surfaces such as fresh plaster, it is advisable to first apply a diluted priming or ‘mist’ coat by adding 20 – 30 % water to the emulsion, before applying the final coat(s). Each coat must be allowed to dry completely before the next one is applied. If painting flat, smooth surfaces the best results can be achieved by thinning the paint with 10% water prior to use.
