Top Tips For Neon's

We highly recommend laying down a base coat of white - ground control prior to painting with neons. By doing this, you will achieve the ultimate brightness and depth of colour. Neons are translucent, so it's best to avoid painting over dark wood or dark colours as you will lose the vividness of the neon aspect.

Application Guidance 

Avoid using slick stick by Dixie Belle with any Daydream apothecary paint or topcoat. They do not play well together. 

You do not have to prime difficult to paint surfaces! Daydream paint has magical powers ;) and will adhere to even the most trickiest.

Remember adhesion power is totally different to stain blocking power. Daydeam Apothecary Paint has adhesion power, NOT stain blocking power. 

 For example:

If you are painting mahogany you may get bleed through from the wood tannins as with any paint on the market.

Another example,  If you sand your piece right down to bare wood, tannins from the wood will tint your paint colour, anything from a light yellow to dark tobacco brown or reddy pink...dependant on wood species and the colour of the paint you are using if you are using.

A dark paint colour you can get away with more. Anything from a mid tone up you need to consider using a stain blocker.  

If the wood is completely  sealed with a lacquer and is the finish is still good not scratched or dented,  don't be tempted to sand that right back to the wood grain. This will help them tannins stay locked in!
