- When over-coating walls in sound condition with the same shade, the application of 1 coat may be sufficient.
- When over-coating a dark colour with a light shade, the application of 3 coats may be necessary.
- Choice of colours – for technical reasons (often dependent upon pigment origin and type) an additional coat will often be required when using certain shades (particularly bright yellows, greens, oranges, reds – refer colour card for details). The use of these colours should be avoided on medium and low-cost projects. Where these low opacity colours are to be used on bare plaster, or for over-coating dark colours, the application of a first coat of a paler shade offering superior coverage is recommended. Consult Crown Technical Department for advice.
