How much paint will I need?
  • Measure the width and height of your walls and multiply the two together to work out the overall square metre measurement.
  • You can then substract the area covered by doors and windows, or any other areas you do not wish to paint.
  • Once you know the overall area, divide this by the paints coverage per litre, for Stonelux Paints this is approximately 2.5 (which includes the recommended 3 coats).
  • You can also use our Paint Calculator
  • Please note that our paint calculator does not take account of spaces you do not wish to paint. This advie is for guidance only, as coverage can vary accoridng to the nature of the substrate and coat thickness.

What type of brush should I use?

We recommend that you use natural bristled brushes.

Natural bristled brushes are not normally recommended for use with waterbased paints, however, the softness of the bristles are ideal for applying Stonelux Paints. These Natural Bristled Economy Brushes have less bristles than a standard brush, which helps prevent the build-up of ground stone within the brush itself, resulting in ease of application and a perfect finish.
