Tikkurila fillers for lasting results

Tikkurila Presto

Ensure good results by carefully levelling the surfaces to be painted. Each coat should be uniform and long lasting. Filler is chosen to suit the requirements of the job in hand. These fillers are easy and safe to use on interior surfaces.

A good base surface is essential for successful painting and wallpapering

Follow these easy instructions

  • ensure that the base is clean, dry, and firm
  • ensure that the wallpaper is firmly stuck to the wall and remove any loose strips before treatment
  • sand down any hard or glossy surfaces
  • remove all sanding residue
  • using a wide steel spatula, spread the filler on to large wall surfaces with firm strokes
  • a narrower spatula is useful for small objects such as furniture
  • two coats of filler should usually be applied, according to filling ability
  • filler coat thickness must not exceed its filling ability (shown in mm)
  • once dry, sand down the filler
  • use sandpaper grit 100–150 for sanding wall filler
  • use sandpaper grit 150–240 to sand furniture for gloss paint
  • remove all sanding residue before finishing
