Allow Damtite to cure for at least 10 days before applying a top coat of paint.
Scrub the waterproofed surface with a rag moistened with soapy water if it has been more than a month or so since you applied the Damtite. Then towel dry with a lint-free towel.
Apply a single coat of oil-based paint to the surface with a spray can, paint sprayer, paintbrush or paint roller. The application method does not matter. The paint type does. Oil-based paint adheres well to the concrete additives in Damtite waterproofing.
Allow the first coat to dry for the manufacturer recommended amount of time.
Apply a second coat of paint.
Allow the paint to dry. If the painted item has a use, like a bird bath or fountain, allow the paint to cure for 72 hours before using the item.
