How to Use It

When you open the can, you'll notice that the paint has a very thick consistency. Although it is thick, it's very easy to use, providing excellent coverage with virtually no spatters or drips!

Because of this unique formula, Glidden Performance Edge 3 In 1 does require a slightly different application technique. Directions are explained below.

For best results, please see the complete details in the video above.


Trade in the Putty Knife for an Ordinary Paper Towel

  • 1. Fold a single paper towel in half four times, creating a small square. Using a paper towel or napkin is important to help the product correctly seal the blemish.
  • 2. Lightly dip one corner of the paper towel into the paint.
Dab and Wipe

Smooth Over the Cracks
(and Other Imperfections)

  • 3. Smear the paint over each nail hole, scratch and hairline crack with one quick dab, making sure the hole or crack is completely covered/sealed over. It's fine if there is excess paint around it.
  • 4. Using the clean side of the folded paper towel, immediately wipe back over the wet area with gentle pressure to remove the excess paint, leaving a thin film that covers the hole or crack and a little of the area around it.
  • Now the crack or hole should be covered and fairly flush to the wall. The paint in the hole or crack may begin to bulge out slightly at first. Don't worry; it will shrink back and flatten out as it dries. Wait about 45 minutes before painting over the filled crack or hole.
Prime and Paint

Get Ready to Roll

  • 5. For best results, it's important to properly "condition" the roller. Pour the paint into the roller pan, then place the roller in the paint and roll back and forth over the grooves/ridges at the bottom of the pan.
  • Repeat this back-and-forth conditioning 20 times to ensure that the roller is fully covered and saturated before you start to paint.
  • 6. Once you've conditioned the roller, you are ready to paint. When needed, just add more paint to the roller as you normally would with a couple of rolls in the paint tray.

Finish Up Faster

  • 7. Walls painted with Glidden Performance Edge 3 In 1 will dry to the touch in just 30 minutes! That's much faster than traditional paints — so you can start enjoying your beautiful room sooner!
