Color Atelier Lime Plaster is a natural mineral-based, fine grade, smooth finish, for low-to-high sheen, depending on technique.
1-Gallon will cover approximately 100 sq ft in one coat. Recommended application is in two or more coats.
Apply Lime Plaster over a base coat of Color Atelier Prep Coat or level 4+ finished drywall primed with Color Atelier Mineral Matte Primer.
The surface should be completely smooth with no texture; repair dents, holes, and imperfections.
Apply Lime Plaster in two or more coats with a trowel, coating knife or spatula, as evenly as possible avoiding lines and ridges. Lime Plaster has such a fine finish; it is recommended to be applied in successive thin layers. It may be necessary to scrape or sand any high points in order to smoothen the first coat. Apply the second coat after the first coat is completely dry. As the finish coat begins to dry up slightly, come back to it with a clean trowel to begin burnishing lightly, increase the pressure each time by doing several passes. The mottling of the finish is more pronounced with increased burnishing and in darker colors.
Clear Wax and Sealer are optional topcoats.
