What do you need to get started with LumiLor?

What skills or experience are needed to apply LumiLor?

LumiLor is applied using a HVLP (high volume, low pressure) spray gun. Basic painting skills such substrate preparation, masking, etc. are required.   Painters with experience  applying coatings with a HVLP system have the basic skills needed to apply LumiLor.
LumiLor sprays similarly to other paints.  Always remember that when applying LumiLor you are constructing an electrical system that must have specific properties to work correctly.  Meticulously following the instructions is required instead of relying on visual queues.
Three to five hours is needed to apply all of the layers of LumiLor in standard conditions. LumiLor should be applied in an ambient temperature of at least 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
