In this next clip, I’m going to show you what
our next step is in varnishing it. But, before we do that I want to show you how it’s turned
out so far. Now, you want to remember that your plugs would also be painted to match
your plate. Now, I want you to remember that your plates and your screw head would already
be painted to match this, so it’s going to blend better than it does with this opening
in here. Because you have to make this work with only this outside edge, so at this point
to varnish, you would need to remove this very carefully and some of the paint might
come off of the screw head, and you would have to touch that up later. But, now you
would remove the plate to varnish it, because your granite will already have a sealer on
it, when you are getting ready to paint and you don’t really want the varnish on there
because it will adhere this to here and make it harder if you ever need to remove it. So,
you want to remove this to varnish it and when you do that, you might need to touch
up your screw when you put it back on. So, basically, you would be unscrewing it from
the wall. With me, I’m just going to take it off of here and this is where you would
clean up your granite and since it’s water based that’s very simple. Just take a wet
paper towel, wash all of the paint off that you got on when you painted the edge. And,
now we’re ready for our next step in which we will start to varnish it and we varnish
it with a water base gloss varnish so that it will match the sheen on your granite.
