      Hey folks,

      It’s been about 10 years since I’ve touched a drop cloth, and last time someone else made all the decisions.

      I’m just wondering if there’s some things I should be mindful of that doesn’t apply to muslin drops. I’m planning on tacking the material to the floor and priming with a house latex, then painting with Supersat paints, then a mist of urethane on top.

      Should I be aware of anything else?

        I’m not qualified to make a suggestion but I am curious about the urethane mist.

        Care to elaborate?

          I like sizing/priming my groundcloth with tinted flex glue and doing it with a Hudson and broom like it was starch.

          These things get super ass heavy and anything I can do to keep the weight down helps.

          I have sealed with a thinned Aqua Plastic Satin in a spray – for strength and then I did a thin spray of Rosco clear flat to knock down the sheen.

            After you’re done painting, spray a light coat of sealant (like Ben Moore Stays Clear low lustre) thinned 1:1 with water using a Hudson sprayer. It’ll seal in your paints.
