Apply it as you would any latex paint. Using a brush will help you create a slight design on the surface. You can roll the first coat and then go over it lightly with the brush. On unsealed exterior surfaces, it is recommended that you use Old Village Exterior Oil Primer (#1236). On interior surfaces use Old Village Interior Oil Primer (#1234) or water-based White Over/Under Primer for Interior and Exterior Use (#1738). Simulated White-Wash may be tinted with universal colorants, but not with other paints.
