Instructions for using the effect trowel
Use of the effect trowel
Apply a layer of creative plaster to the dry plaster primer in grain thickness. It is best to use a Venetian smoothing trowel. This coat should dry for at least 12 hours before applying a new coat of creative plaster. After that, the effect trowel should be used to dab a structure into the damp plaster or to draw lines. Now let the surface attract and then compact with the Venetian smoothing trowel until a silky shine appears. After drying, apply with a Venetian trowel or sponge, coloured and/or transparent Punic wax. After a short flash-off time, the wax is polished with a microfibre cloth, a polishing machine with lambskin or similar. Punic wax with pearlescent pigments produces beautiful effects. This effect wax is available in gold, silver, copper or bronze.
