A liquid product used to seal the pores of raw wood or to provide a base upon which painting or faux finishing is accomplished. You should always seal wood before painting because paint alone will cause the wood grain to swell more than when you first use a sealer. Also, you will use less paint when you seal your wood first.

Delta All-Purpose Sealer

For Use on Most Porous and Non-Porous Surfaces
- Penetrates porous surfaces creating a non-porous protective barrier-requiring fewer layers of paint.

- Creates a slight texture, or "tooth", for easier paint adhesion on both porous and non-porous surfaces.

- Dries clear and matte (non-shiny). Generally dries in 1-2 hours.

- Ideal for wood, paper mâché, paper, terra cotta, plaster, resin and bisque.

- Do not use on glass and tile.

Helpful Hints:
All surfaces should be free of rust, dirt, and dust prior to sealing.

Sealing wood will slightly raise the grain creating a "fuzzy" texture. After the sealer has dried, lightly sand using fine #400 sandpaper to smooth wood grain.
