Water-Based Alkyde Primer


Water-based primer. Not suitable for very glossy surfaces as you will need an oil primer.

This primer does not have a strong odor, which makes the job pleasant. Using our velvet finish foam roller makes it easier to apply the primer.

After using this primer, you will be ready to apply any of our chalk paint colors.

Can be used to coat oil, melamine or plastic.

  • PREP IS ALWAYS BEST – All Canadian chemists approved: it’s best to prep your surface if it’s shinny, glossy or if you are unsure. Use a TSP or the Colorantic cleaner and varnish remover. Let it acts for 30 min, then rinse with a damp cloth. You can use our small two-grains sanding blocks to remove the excess of the old-varnish. Then you are ready to apply our Colorantic’s Grip all water-based primer. Then apply two coats of Colorantic chalk-based paint or any brand paints. Let it dry for two to three hours. Then apply our matte varnish or matte smooth tinted or clear natural wax. Let it cure one to two to seven days before using the furniture again.

We have different wax colours available on Colorantic’s page to create the perfect ombre or antique look. Wax can be applied over the varnish but never underneath.
