WALL PREPARATION: Damasco is a thin-layered velvet finish coating, therefore requiring a smooth, well prepared wall so as to show all its splendour. In the case of old or porous walls, goutellette finish, these should be plastered and sanded down so as to smoothen properly. Next, the pores should be sealed and the surface consolidated using a nanometric sealer such as the Osaka Sellador-Fijador. We recommend priming with 1 or 2 coats of NATURAL blanco (ready to use or diluted 20%) as an anchoring bridge beween the wall and the finish. Allow to dry 8hrs between coats.
In the case of very absorbent surfaces or those in bad state, apply our water-based sealant.
In the case of irregular surfaces, cracked, with gouttelette, etc. use our smoothening putty or Elastomeric Putty, depending on the thickness or filling power needed.
Once the previous step has been taken and after respecting the drying time, apply an undiluted coat of Fondo Sublime blanco using a roller and allow to dry at least 8 hours.
PROTECTION: In order to increase resistance and washability allow Damasco de dry at least 24hrs and apply 1 or 2 coats of Barniz Alto Brillo by roller (glossy).
Important observation: Damasco’s great attractiveness lies in its metallic sparkles, chiaroscuros and its silky tact, hence, although being very durable, it is not a very washable coating neither apt for high wear and tear surfaces. It can be protected, but in so doing part of these effects will be lost.
