Have you ever experienced brush strokes? Or had paint dry too quickly? Our Extender is the solution to this problem! Extender opens drying time making Fusion Mineral Paint and other water-based paints flow more smoothly. It helps reduce the visibility of brush strokes. Similar to Floetrol, it reduces wear on spray guns.
This tiny bottle goes a long way, less is more with this product. Add to 15-30ml (quarter-half a bottle) of Extender to a pint of paint (or other water-based Fusion products). Stir well once added. Mix 1/4 a bottle (15ml) – 1/2 a bottle of Extender (30ml) together with a pint. 1 bottle is good for 2-4 pints. Adding more is not recommended as it will impact your drying and curing time.
Soap and water.
Prep your piece as you would to paint with Fusion Mineral Paint. Clean your piece with TSP and give it a light scuff sand.
Once mixed with Fusion Mineral Paint, apply paint as usual. You will notice a longer open drying time, thus giving you time to work with the paint and smooth out brush strokes. Once your first coat fully dries, apply subsequent coats as needed. We recommend waiting at least 4 hours between coats when using the Extender. Should you notice that applying your second coat is lifting off the first, either too much extender was used, or it needs more time to dry and cure before applying another coat.
DISCARD UNUSED PAINT:
Once mixed with Extender, the Fusion Paint must be used up within a couple of days. Just mix in what you need to complete your piece, remember you can always add more if needed!
