Be sure to gently mix your Tough Coat™ prior to using it as the matting agent and other ingredients may settle to the bottom. Do not shake vigorously as this will cause air bubbles in your piece that are difficult to remove once applied.
Do not use on medium to darker colours as it will show streaks, this is water vapour trapped within the tough coat and is visible on dark colours in particular. Should streaking occur, you can simply apply the paint over top and leave it as is. This is known as the “Tough Coat Sandwhich”. It has Paint first, then Tough Coat, then Paint and it is beyond durable! This is only recommend for very high traffic surfaces. Use the “Natural” colour All in One Finishing Oil as a substitute to avoid streaking and to provide an extra durable strong top coat over Fusion Mineral Paint over high traffic areas like kitchen cabinets or table tops, even flooring!
If applying to a recently painted surface, allow 12-24 hours of drying time before applying. For best results, use with a damp lint free rag and apply two coats 2-4 hours apart. In humid areas, longer drying times may be required.
*** Not Recommended over medium to dark paint colours due to water vapour being trapped which could cause streaking *** Instead use the Natural Stain and Finishing Oil over medium to darker colours for extra added durability on high traffic areas such as kitchen cabinets, table tops or flooring.

The oil will feel dry to the touch one day after the initial application, however complete drying can be several days. For example if there is too much oil initially applied, then small amounts of oil may rise over the first few days. This can be avoided by wiping the excess away with a cloth. If used on a floor during this time it is recommended to place some cardboard pieces where there will be a lot of foot traffic. Dirty shoes should be kept off for at least two weeks.
