Brush Texture

Specially formulated to retain brush strokes. Apply easily over any of our other lacquers. Greatly reduces the quality of copy machines, copy stations, etc. making photographs difficult to reproduce. Brush Texture gives your photographs a classic fine arts look. Available in both Lacquer-Mat and Water- Mat.

USAGE : Lacquer-Mat Brush Texture can be applied with a natural bristle brush or palette knife to create a variety of brush stroke patterns and special effects.

Photograph must be mounted and sprayed with a coat of lacquer before applying Brush Texture. Masonite makes a good mount. Work in front of a spray booth for good ventilation. Shake Brush lacquer gently for a few seconds (shaking too vigorously will cause bubbles). Pour a small amount of Brush lacquer into a container such as a metal cup or glass. Do not use a plastic or wax cup. Apply lacquer sparingly, using a natural bristle brush and working small areas at a time. Brush until lacquer "drags" and brush strokes hold. (Working too long will cause the lacquer to "string".) Continue working small areas until the entire print has been completed. Additional texture can be applied over any part of the print that you feel would be improved by a stronger and bolder texture.

Check the print and fill in any areas that may have been missed. Do not leave any dull areas. A new brush may shed a few bristles. Allow the lacquer to dry and scrape off the bristles with a sharp razor blade. Clean the print thoroughly before spraying with several thin coats of Satina or Diamond Gloss.

 

 

 

Spray Texture

Heavy bodied lacquer suited to quick texturing of the photograph. Spray over any of our other lacquers. Greatly reduces the quality of copy machines, copy stations, etc. making photographs difficult to reproduce. Spray Texture gives your photographs a contemporary look.

USAGE: Spray texture must be used over a previous lacquered print for proper adhesion. Always shake the can and use a clean nozzle each time before spraying. Spray texture must be used at room temperature (approximately 70). It will not spray properly if it is cold or used in a cold room. Use white nozzle for fine pattern; red nozzle for heavy pattern.

PEBBLE PATTERN : Place the print in the spray booth on a sheet of paper larger than the print to catch the overspray and keep your spray area clean. Spray texture approximately two feet away from the print with a side to side motion - allowing the lacquer to drop on the print. Turn the print 90 and repeat. (Start spraying off the print and end off the print to avoid build-up on the edges. Do not hesitate while spraying.) Several distinctive patterns can be achieved simply by changing the nozzle or varying the angle or distance from the print. Several coats can be applied for a heavier texture. Allow lacquer to dry between coats to retain the pattern.

After texturing, you can finish the print with the luster of your choice - semi-matte, luster or gloss. Do not flood the print by spraying too slowly or too heavy. Allow the lacquer to dry between coats to retain the pattern.
