• You'd be amazed if you could hear the enthusiastic
comments we get every day about Spred satin . Once
people have tried it. they keep coming back for more.
Here are a few of the things they say:
"I've never painted before, but I got perfect results
the first time."
"I finished a bedroom in a couple of hour:, on? it
dried completely while I ate lunch."
"Not a single lap or brushmark."
Crayon marks washed off perfectly."
The secret of this gorgeous satin finish is its exclusive
synthetic rubber emulsion base—a formula developed by
Glidden. We’ve never han ded a paint that compared
with Spred SATIN. Ccaiie io and we ll siiow you.
