    • Wipe the surface to remove dust and debris. For sticky or oily residue from old polish or spills, clean thoroughly with vinegar and hot water (50:50) and allow to dry.
    • High gloss surfaces may require light scuffing for best adhesion.

    Application Instructions:

    Uncle Jeff’s ORIGINAL Swamp Mud™ is a thick textured base coat that is designed to create the “tooth” or “grooves” on a non-sandable, non-porous surfaces such as plastic laminate, glass, metal and marble.  This “tooth” allows the paint to adhere to the those surfaces.  Swamp Mud™ also minimizes the appearance of small imperfections. It can also be used to create a faux two color faded paint look.

    • Brush on a generous coat of Swamp Mud™ and allow to dry completely. It will lose its shine once it is dry.
    • Next apply two coats of your favorite Miss Lillian’s NO WAX Chock Paint and allow paint to completely dry between coats.
    • Apply one of our Antiquing or Metallic Glazes, if desired, and finish with one to two coats of one of our Luster Topcoats . Allow to cure for 24 hours before putting into gentle daily use.

    Swamp Mud™ may also be diluted slightly to be used as a base primer to help cover dark surfaces.

    Application Instructions to use Swamp Mud™ as a Base Primer

    • Dilute Swamp Mud slightly and apply a generous coat of Swamp Mud™ to your project, allowing to dry completely.
    • Once dry brush on two coats of your chosen Miss Lillian’s NO WAX Chock Paint allowing complete dry time between coats.
    • After paint has dried distress and/or glaze if you wish. If using Antiquing Glaze allow glaze to dry over night before sealing.
