New unpainted wood or plaster (not skim-coated wallboard): After sanding and removing dust, apply one coat of Oil Undercoat. Seal knots with shellac before priming. If substantial penetration into surfaces occurs, re-prime to achieve a uniform build. Sand smooth with 220 grit sandpaper before application of finish paint.
Previously painted surfaces: Sand existing finish with 100 grit sandpaper, remove dust and apply one coat Oil Undercoat. Sand smooth with 220 grit sandpaper before application of finish paint.

Under normal environmental conditions, this product requires no thinning. Stir well before use.
