Picking a Color
The SureSwatch® Way
Painting swatches is part of the process of picking your paint color. And using a painted SureSwatch® is the easiest way to confirm or reject your color choice.
Plus, it adds some fun back to the process.
Just paint your SureSwatch®, try & decide & remove.
Congratulations! You have picked the right color and left your wall clean and ready to paint.
Step 1: Apply Paint Generously
With the Sure Swatch’s UNPRINTED side up, apply the paint generously in a corner-to-corner “X” pattern. Paint in a side-to-side motion and then in an up and down motion to completely cover the sheet.
As a final step, roll in one direction from top to bottom in a series of strokes covering the entire sheet. Let the first coat dry until it feels dry to the touch. Apply a second coat using the same method. Again, be sure to let it dry to the touch.
Drying time is approximately 20-60 minutes depending on the surrounding temperature and humidity.
Step 2: Try the Color on Your Wall
While you might be tempted to make your color choice by looking down at what you have just painted, it’s important that you position your SureSwatch on your wall for viewing. Place the SureSwatch® on the wall.
After the painted SureSwatch® is dry, crack on the dotted line to remove your painted SureSwatch®.
Walk a few feet back from the wall and view.
You will quickly and easily know which is the right color for you. Do you need more time to decide? We like to live with our color for a few days to see it under different lighting conditions.
When painting with SureSwatch®, DO NOT use it on wallpaper, recently painted surfaces, unpainted drywall, or other easily peeled surfaces.
For additional information, we have put together a list of our most popular questions.
Step 3: Remove for a Clean Wall
Once you’ve made your choice, remove the SureSwatch and discard. SureSwatch removes easily and cleanly, just be sure to remove within 14 days of viewing.
