FAQs about How to use Giani Countertop Paint Kit
Giani Countertop Paint Kit FAQs is one place to look for help when you need a quick answer on how to paint your countertop with a Giani Countertop Paint Kit. We have complied some of the more common questions people have had while doing their countertops with the kit.
1)I have a 135″W x 31″H countertop, therefore will I need more than one kit? One kit will do the job because it covers 35 sq. ft
2)What’s the best top coat, epoxy glaze or varnish? 16 Oz. Automotive Grade Polyurethane Topcoat comes with the Giani Countertop Paint Kit, because some topcoats can break down or yellow it’s recommend you only use the top coat that come with the kit.
3) How long do I wait in between the top coat applications? Wait 4 hours before applying the second coat. There is no need to sand between coats unless it is not completely smooth. Once dry, run your hand over the surface to make sure that there is no texture. If there is, lightly sand with a #600 grit sandpaper and clean up with a damp cloth. Make sure the surface is completely dry and dust free before applying the 2nd coat. After your final topcoat (recommended to apply 2, max of 3), wait 1 hour and score the tape with blade and slowly pull.
Giani Countertop Paint Kit FAQs about Peeling
4) Anyone know why some get peeling after a few months? Following the directions is crucial as well as preparing the surface. The surface should be sanded, and then cleaned completely and then dusted to ensure dirt and dust from sanding is completely removed. If the counter is wet or there is left over dust from sanding it will peel later. I have had my counters now for a year. I have had no issues with peeling. Also just like if you had Formica, you should not cut on the surface.
5) I see Giani Countertop Paint Kits are made to adhere to tile, but will it work if applied to a wood surface? It will adhere to wood, marble even granite.
