Please see these questions for general paint queries.

No. Paint should never be diluted. Diluting paint will compromise many of the properties of the product such as scrubbability, stain resistance, opacity and adhesion strength. You can contact our Technical Services Department on (011) 389-4746. They can assist you with all your queries regarding thinning.
Matt paints such as PROMINENT PAINTS Ultra MATT and PROMINENT PAINTS Premium MATT have low reflection value to help hide minor imperfections on plasterwork. Sheen paints have a slightly glossy look to them which might highlight the imperfections at certain angles.
Any of our trained Decorating Centre® staff or nationwide stockists will also be able to assist you in calculating your paint requirements.
By making use of our paint calculator on our website you will be guided through a process which will determine your paint requirements.
Do a methylated spirits test with a soft cloth to determine if the colorant can be rubbed off the wall. Acrylic paint will rub off but enamel paint will not.
The best thing to do is to visit your nearest Prominent Paints Decorating CentreĀ® or nationwide stockist and view the range of Prominent Paints Colourscapes colours that are available. Our Decorating CentresĀ® and stockists will also be able to assist you in matching the colour to the closest available paint colour.
No. Acrylic paint will not adhere properly to enamel paint. Lightly sand the area to be painted and ensure that all the gloss areas have been dulled. Clean the surface thoroughly with clean water and allow it to dry completely. Apply 1 coat of PROMINENT PAINTS UNIVERSAL UNDERCOAT. Allow the undercoat to dry for 24 hours before applying your final coats of acrylic paint.
Acrylic paints are lighter in colour when wet; the true colour can only be seen after the coating is dry.
Even though acrylic paint is touch dry in a short while you must ensure that it is left to dry before applying a second coat. Failure to do this will cause opacity problems. Consult the on-pack technical data for drying times
