interior walls

Darker shades may require an additional coat to be concealed completely. The actual shade, especially for darker shades, will be visible only after the film is dry. It cannot be identified either in the can or in the wet state.

Solvent based paints (those using thinner other than water) should be allowed twice the drying time than given here in case of high-humidity climate like monsoons.

Putty can be applied to make the substrate smoother; however it has to be sandwiched between 2 coats of primer.
