Use this step-by-step tutorial to get the most from your Rotaris paint repair kit.

  • Prepare the surface by removing any dust, grease, oil and dirt. Wipe it dry & clean.
If you did not order Primer then proceed to Paint.
    Primer
    • Shake the bottle well for 1 minute, hard enough to hear the metal ball rattling.
    • Apply a small amount of primer to ‘fill’ the surface unevenness. Using a wet finger, gently run over the primer to level the primer with the surrounding paint surface.
    • Leave the primer to dry for 60 minutes.

    Paint

    Some paints are developed in 2 different layers. In this case you have been provided with 2 different bottles of paint (not including primer or clear coat), indicating layer 1 and layer 2. Leave 30 minutes of drying time between applying each layer.

    • Shake the bottle well for 1 minute, hard enough to hear the metal ball rattling.
    • Practice your technique by first applying paint to a piece of scrap material. Keep in mind less is more. Multiple thin layers create a better end result than a single thick layer. Avoid creating brush strokes.
    • Apply an evenly thin layer of paint.
    • Leave the paint to dry for 30 minutes.
    • Apply a 2nd evenly thin layer of paint.
    • Leave the paint to dry for 2 hours.
    Clear coat
    • Shake the bottle well for 1 min. Apply an evenly thin layer of clear coat finish.
    • Leave the frame to dry for 48 hours.
