deterioration. Paint shall be thoroughly stirred, strained and kept at a uniform

23
consistency during application. Paints of different manufacture shall not be
mixed together. When thinning is necessary, this may be done immediately

excess of 1 pint of suitable thinner per gallon of the paint

(d) Workmanship All paints shall be evenly applied. Coats shall be of proper
consistency and well brushed out so as to show a minimum of brush marks. All
coats shall be thoroughly dry before the succeeding coat is applied. Where
surfaces are not fully covered or cannot be satisfactorily finished in the number
of coats as may be required shall be applied to attain the desired evenness of
surface without extra cost to the UPOU. Where surface is not in proper
condition to receive the coat, the Engineer shall be notified immediately. Work
on the questioned portion(s) shall not start until clearance be proceed is ordered
by the Engineer. Hardware, lighting fixture and other similar item shall be
removed or protected during the painting, varnishing and related work
operations and re-installed after completion of the work.

scaffolding and paint containers shall be removed. Paint drips, oil, or stains on
adjacent surfaces shall be removed and the entire job left clean and acceptable
to the owner.
