7. Leave to dry. Depending on your climate it might take 1-2 hours. Repeat the process twice more, this time also concentrating on really covering the top edge of your tray. This is the spot that paint is most likely to chip from wear and tear, so really coat it well. I often use the roller for the third coat as it really gives a lovely smooth effect.
8. Wash brushes and rollers out in running water completely and leave to dry overnight, along with your tray. This allows the paint to cure overnight.
9. The next day, shake your tin of varnish before opening. Use your brush to mix thoroughly, ensuring to mix the sediment off the bottom of the tin.
