At Fiberglass Coatings, we try to make projects as easy as we can, from our excellent technicians who can walk you through your job step by step, to our new website, filled with useful information, to the products themselves. One of our latest products is a perfect example of including everything you need to make your job easy, and the results outstanding. Today, we are looking at The Genius Bucket by EMC2 Paint.
The Genius Bucket is available in several different colors.
When you first open your Genius Bucket, you will notice it is PACKED with goodies; everything you need to do your project. With this bucket you get so much more than just the paint, you get:
- 2 quarts of Quantum Base
- 1 quart of Brushing Activator
- 1 Quart of Brushing Reducer
- 1 quart of Surface prep cleaner
- 1 Instructions
- 4 6” Roller Covers
- 1 Roller frame
- 1 roller pan
- 2 foam brushes
- 4 large latex gloves
- 2 paint strainers
- 2 stir sticks
- 2 scour pads
- 2 mixing cups
- 4 general purpose rags
- 4 lint-free wiping rags
- 1 pre-taped masking paper film
It’s great for rolling or brushing your paint onto your surface. As the video above states, you want to make sure you use proper safety equipment, including the gloves (included) and a dust or painting mask for the fumes (not included) and also some safety glasses.
You want to make sure you take your time and follow the surface prep instructions properly. Surface prep can make or break your project as the surface needs to be scoured and cleaned prior to applying the paint.
The next step is mixing your paint. You are looking at a 2:1:1 mixture of Base, Activator, and Reducer. Be sure to measure carefully and stir for a full 5 minutes before applying. After waiting until the paint is tacky, you can apply your second coat, for best results.
From that point, you are all set! Your project will look outstanding! And all from a Bucket! I guess that’s why they call it Genius.
