How to Apply Perennial 405 for Optimal Results

Securing a professional finish with Perennial 405 depends on adequate wall preparation and the right choice of painting tools. Start by preparing the wall surface - clean it with a sponge and warm water, remove any mildew, and apply an appropriate primer, especially when painting over a darker hue.

The painting methodology also significantly impacts the final result. Here are some tips to follow:

  1. When loading paint onto the roller, use the roll-off area of the paint tray to evenly saturate the roller without submerging it. This ensures maximum paint pick-up and consistent release.
  2. Start painting from the top of the wall, working down and overlapping each row by 3-5 inches with light pressure to avoid drips.
  3. Reload the roller frequently to maintain a wet edge.

Following these tips will help you achieve a professional-looking interior paint job along with using the correct paint for your application. Perennial 405 is available in Benjamin Moore’s Aura, Aura Bath & Spa, Regal Select, ben, Advance, Waterborne Ceiling Paint, and Ultra Spec 500

Post application, follow these steps for best results:

  1. Let the first coat dry thoroughly as per the paint can’s suggested durations.
  2. Apply a second coat for better hide and color enhancement.
  3. Ensure a proper cure time before reattaching fixtures, wall plates, or frames to avoid damage to the finish.


In conclusion, the versatile and vibrant Perennial 405 offers an exciting opportunity to revitalize your interior spaces. Whether you’re looking to refresh your traditional design elements or add a pop of color to a modern setting, this radiant yellow-green hue is sure to impress.
