My bathroom looks like it has an oil based gloss paint on it. Can I paint straight on to it using eicó paint?

No you cannot paint a water-based paint directly on to an oil product. We would recommend that you paint it with Aqua Grepp Alterior primer before applying the eicó paint.

  2. Hi Irina,

    Firstly you need to sand it down to bare wood and use a water base primer called SERVALAC AQUA from Alcro-beckers – this primer is totally safe for a child cot-bed and has the Nordic Ecolabel or “Swan” certificate ISO 17011 – You can get the primer from Ray Munn Ltd – Tel: 02077369876.

    For “The top coat” you can use eicó alterior eggshell (sheen level 20%) or eicó alterior satin (sheen level 30%).
