SILK PLASTER INSTRUCTIONS
The application of SILK PLASTER is very simple. Anyone can handle it with no special training. You won't need any special equipment, just plastic trowel.
To make it properly, first you have to prepare the surface. The wall is heterogeneous in its composition, its surface may have remnants of old wallpaper, glue, old paint, plaster, wood screws and nails, inside - iron fittings. Since Silk Plaster is mixed with water, these remnants can extract in the form of rust and yellow stains on the surface.
Surface should be dry, clean and evenly white, without any stains. Remove old wallpapers, nails and etc. If necessary, cover the places affected with fungus with antiseptic, remove dust and dry up the wall. To prevent rusty stains cover with oil-based paint bolts, screws, nails, tacks and etc. Plane surface with plaster/stucco and prime it in 2-3 layers with the original SILK PLASTER primer, drying time between layers should be 3-4 hours. In the absence of the original SILK PLASTER primer use any waterproof primer or any waterproof mat paint. To choose the best primer option please consult with the seller in your country..
For Victoria 701, Optima 051, Standart 011, Base coating No 1 and Base coating No 2 please use only 'Alkyd oil base primer - sealer' or 'Acrylic eggshell paint'. For better grip add a hand cup of clean sand and stir very good.
Please do not use water based primers for Silk Plaster white bases.
