We recommend that you test it on a smaller area before covering a larger surface with dark paint to avoid any unexpected outcomes. In rare cases, a slightly white or cloudy appearance may occur if applied too thickly or in humid conditions.

Final Finish Top Coat is for interior use only and is formulated without formaldehyde preservatives, toxic mildewcides or fungicides. For those who embrace the chippy milk paint look, apply in thin coats; if any paint raises after the first coat dries, a light sanding and re-application of a second coat should do the trick!

    Use over milk paint or stained/raw wood for a durable and abrasion resistant finish.  Our Top Coat Finish Finish is one of the highest quality, low toxicity water based finishes on the market and is a great alternative to solvent based products.  Can be used on cabinets, floors, doors, toys, etc.

    **Top Coat Final Finish will NOT even out the mottled, streaky appearance that milk paint is known for or change/deepen the color (for that, use an oil based finish such as our Oil Wax).  This product will seal the milk paint but keep the exact look of raw paint.**

    Clean up with soap and water.  Under normal conditions, Top Coat Final Finish will dry to the touch within 1 hour and is re-coatable in 4-6 hours.  Avoid traffic/use for at least 24 hours.  Product will continue to cure and harden over time.  Do not use below 55 degrees.  Do not allow product to freeze.  Keep bottle tightly closed and out of reach of children.  Always have adequate ventilation.  If you are chemically sensitive, always test for personal tolerance.

    **Winter Shipping Advisory regarding DIY PAINT**

    DIY Paint is a water-based paint that can be damaged if allowed to freeze. During the winter season, I am very selective in how and when I ship your paint orders. 

    If temperatures fall below freezing, and in order to ensure that your receive your paint in good condition, DIY paint will ship on Mondays through Wednesdays, generally via Priority Mail. .Therefore, if you place an order on Thursday, it will not ship until Monday, I do offer a heated shipping option, which is available for purchase.  If you have ordered other non paint products in the same order, your entire order will be shipped at the same time.

    Route Protection is mandatory for the shipment of all DIY Paint and Products.

    In some cases, depending upon your location, you may be contacted for additional shipping when Priority Mail charges exceed standard shipping costs.

    If the temperatures in your area are below freezing, you are fully responsible for bringing your paint inside immediately upon delivery to avoid freezing.
