VINDO Natural Oil Paint No. 629 contains little solvent, so it tends to develop a skin. Before using, simply remove the skin and stir well. Drying delays possible if applied too thickly or if not following instructions. Provide sufficient light and ventilation. With low light conditions, white and light grey color tones may yellow significantly. VINDO Natural Gloss Paint No. 629 does not contain fungicides, in case of rough sawn timber, danger of blue-staining fungi. Their appearance depends on the surface roughness, sun- and weather side, moisture content, and natural cover etc. Possible fungi growth should be removed. Tropical woods such as merbau, afzelia, jatoba, true mahogany and also indigenous oak should not be painted with VINDO White because of possible discoloration due to incompatibilities in the wood. For bookshelves and window sills, apply very thin and allow to dry for 4 weeks before loading with books or flowerpots. Possibility of yellowing under books etc. After priming, the seams of new windows should be painted only once with VINDO. Silicone
