One Hour Enamel Paint is water-based enamel formula made primarily for kitchen cabinets, front doors, and trim. It has a stone-like satin topcoat built in, so it is a great choice for updating exterior and interior features.

Tips for the Best Results

  • Do not overwork. Lay down enough paint so it has enough product to self-level but avoid drips.
  • Do not use wax over enamel.
  • The recommended recoat time is 2 hours.
  • Use Stain Eliminating Primer before for superior adhesion.
  • For the best result use the Wise Owl Premium Brush from our great selection of brushes. You may also use a microfibre 3/16 inch roller with a brush over for a perfect smooth finish. If spraying, you may thin with water if needed, but not more than 10%.
  • If using Glaze over Enamel, there is no need to use varnish first. Instead, apply glaze right over enamel.
  • Must seal the glaze with varnish or Clear OHE.
  • Do NOT use clear shellac as a primer with One Hour Enamel. It will cause the paint to crackle.
