If the wooden letters have a very rough surface, rub them down lightly with sandpaper before painting to remove any noticeable unevenness. Smooth surfaces won’t need sanding.
To achieve a smooth and evenly painted surface, first apply a coat of edding Universal Primer to the letters. This maximises adhesion, enhances the sheen and ensures that subsequent coats of coloured paint can be applied more sparingly.
After leaving the primer to dry for a short while, paint the wooden letters with edding Permanent Spray in your chosen shade. To achieve a perfect result, we recommend using both horizontal and vertical strokes at a distance of approx. 25 cm.
