(Application of primer is mandatory in case of re-painting. Horizontal surfaces like top of windows or ledges should be painted with 3 coats of Apex Ultima for greater protection).
3) Apply coat of Apex Createx Roller Finish. Apply it with a Steel Trowel and create the desired pattern. After application, allow the surface to dry for 12 - 16 hours.
