Bungalow 47 Matte Finish is an American-made finish that seals Bungalow 47 Furniture paint. It is ultra-low VOC, low odor, non-yellowing, and fast drying. It has excellent water and chemical resistance, so you can confidently protect your repurposed vintage finds. It may be used on painted or bare wood surfaces.
Prep: Begin by removing all dust from your painted piece. If desired, all areas should be distressed and painted before sealing with Matte Finish.
Application: Stir Matte Finish thoroughly before using and occasionally during use. DO NOT shake. Apply using a terry staining pad, lint-free cloth, or foam brush roller. Apply in thin coats, working in small areas at a time. Do not overwork. Allow the finish to dry, 1-2 hours in most climates, before applying a second coat. If your vintage find produces stains after using this or any water-based product (this can happen at varied rates due to depth of stain or dryness of the wood) use Bungalow 47 Primer to block them before reapplying paint and finish.
Optional: Sanding between coats with a very fine 220-grit sandpaper will ensure an ultra-smooth finish. Apply a third coat, if desired, for high usage areas.
Estimated Coverage: Covers approximately 75-100 square feet.
Estimated Dry/Cure Time: Depending on your climate, the finish will be dry to the touch within 1-2 hours. The product will continue to cure and harden over 7 days.
Clean Up: Clean up any spills and spatters, along with your painting tools, using warm soapy water.
