The Mica Countertop Transformation covers 50 sq Ft.
A. Thoroughly stir the Base Coat using a stir stick. Pour a portion of the Base Coat
into a clean paint tray.
B. Starting with the backsplash, use a
50 mm (2”) synthetic brush to apply an
even coat of Base Coat.
C. Be sure that your coverage includes 2-5 cm
(1-2”) of the flat countertop surface that
connects to the backsplash. This will prevent
your roller from accidentally bumping into
the backsplash while rolling.
D. Working from back-to-front, use the
enclosed 150 mm x 10 mm (6” x 3/8”) nap
roller to apply an even coat of Base Coat
over the entire countertop. Then use the brush
again to coat any tight spaces (i.e. around the
sink or in the corners).
Hold the roller at a high angle when rolling on the Base Coat
for a smooth application.
E. For each section, once the Base Coat has been applied to the entire surface then
re-roll in one, uniform direction towards your body.
F. After the Base Coat has been applied, quickly inspect the entire countertop for sags,
mistakes, or areas of thin coverage. Apply more Base Coat where necessary. To
repair accidental bumps, see “Preparation and Repair” in the FAQ section.
G. After the first coat has dried for at least 2 hours or until the inside edges are dry,
repeat steps A-F and apply a second even coat of Base Coat.
H. Once the second coat is dry to the touch (approx. 2 hours) and before it completely
dries, be sure to remove the tape by first scoring it around the edges.
I. For maximum adhesion of the clear Mica top coat to the base coat, lightly sand the
base coat with sanding pad after it has dried overnight. Apply the Protective Top Coat
within 24 hours of applying the Base Coat.
Allow the coating to dry overnight. However apply the Protective Top Coat within 24
hours of applying the Base Coat.
And you don't need a mask.
