How to Cook Up a Gorgeous Finish:
SmartColor allows you to create your own decorative recipe. Try Milk Chocolate (SC-119) over Peanut Butter (SC-113). Or perhaps Hazelnut (SC-115) and Juneberry (SC-110) would look yummy together! Whatever your palate calls for, SmartColor is the right ingredient for your decorative needs! For best results, create a mist of SmartColor over the intended surface using an airless or HVLP sprayer; a beautiful, variegated finish can be achieved through the various absorbencies of the substrate, as well as the unique weights of each SmartColor pigment. Depending on the desired effect, SmartColor may also be applied via pump sprayer, the NewLook Applicator Brush, bristle brush, sea sponge or paint roller.
Coverage & Packaging:
SmartColor is a single-component stain that is diluted with water to yield the following coverage rates:
> 4 oz Test (yields 20 ounces) covers 35-50 sq. ft.*
> 1 quart (yields 1.25 gallons) covers 250-400 sq. ft.*
> 1 gallon (yields 5 gallons) covers 1000-1600 sq. ft.*
> 5 gallon (yields 20 gallons) covers 5000-8000 sq. ft.*
> 55 gallon container available.
*While not required, mixing with distilled, deionized or reverse osmosis water may help to ensure product durability and optimal adhesion. Coverage is based on substrate porosity, moisture content, surface temperature and application method.

NewLook International, Inc. cannot control (and is not responsible for) computer screen resolutions, application methods, jobsite conditions, finishing techniques, curing methods or other jobsite variables and, therefore, cannot guarantee the final appearance, adhesion or an exact color match. NewLook strongly recommends representative jobsite samples prior to project installation.
