FRIDAY F.A.Q.: CAN BRUSHABLE WHITE ENAMEL BE USED OVER AN EXISTING FINISH
Brushable White Enamel can be applied to raw wood or existing finishes. When applying over an existing finish, be sure to prep your surface properly.
Learn how to properly prep existing finishes by watching our prep video on our YouTube channel.
The use of General Finishes Stain Blocker wood primer is recommended on both raw wood and existing finishes to prevent dye or stain bleed-through.
See GF's main F.A.Q. generalfinishes.com for more tips and info

FRIDAY F.A.Q.: WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF GF MILK PAINT
GF is rather conservative regarding the life of our Milk Paint. Water based products do not last forever, even when unopened. General Finishes products are best used within 1 year of the manufacture date listed on the can.
However, the life of the product may be extended with proper care and storage. If the can is in good condition, unopened and stored in correct temperatures, water based products can last 3-5 years. Avoid temperatures below 50°F/10°C or above 80°F/26°C and keep from freezing. Note, a can of paint that is 3 years old will not look like a can of paint that is 6 months to 1 year old. You will see stratification or separation, which is normal. Always stir thoroughly before using.
If your paint has a foul smell, the product is contaminated and is no longer in useable condition. If your water based product has large chunks that cannot be incorporated by stirring, the product has frozen and can no longer be used.
Please be mindful of the manner in which your paint is stored and how long it's been in storage. It is not a forever product.
Check out our YouTube channel for a video with storage tips and the Milk Paint Page of our website for more detailed storage instructions.
