Venetian stucco application
Now with new formula. Great for beginners.
This stucco can be easily applied on any smooth mineral background, such as on cement, concrete, lime plaster, or even on surfaces already painted with mineral paints.
Instructions: Mix the product very well mechanically. Prepare the surface to be applied well so that it is smooth and free of dust and moisture. It is always advisable to carry out small tests beforehand to become familiar with the technique. There are endless techniques to apply this stucco.
It is advisable to allow 1 to 2 hours to pass between each layer applied.
An example of application would be: Apply the first layer with the desired color and texture on the well prepared surface. To do this, you can use a stucco trowel, or a brush or even a roller, depending on the desired finish. After approximately 1-2 hours, when the stucco is dry to the touch, you can smooth it down, if desired, and continue applying in small amounts with a different color and desired effect. Then proceed to smooth during drying with the trowel and a little pressure in all directions. The stucco already generates shine by itself when smoothing.
You can apply as many layers as you want without problems. This greatly facilitates the application since errors can always be corrected without being noticed. It can also be sanded between layers.
When the surface is completely dry, about 8 hours later, if desired, apply a wax.
To take into account: If the background has plastic paint, it is necessary to sand with sandpaper to open the pore and then apply a mineral fixative.
On plasterboard walls (plasterboard), also apply a mineral fixative.
Do not apply at temperatures below 5ºC or above 35ºC, or with a relative humidity above 80%.
Tools are washed with water.
