Platinum Series Metallic Plaster is a water base, trowel applied plaster, containing several mica, glass and pearlescent particles, which impart a beautiful shimmering finish when applied in layers of the same color or blended in layers of different colors. It has excellent open time during application, dries to an extremely durable finish and can be over glazed with ease.
Surface Preparation – Follow standard practices and procedures for properly preparing surfaces for the application of traditional water-based latex paint. All surfaces to be painted must be entirely free of dust, dirt, oil, grease, and other contaminants. Completely remove all loose, flaking, or chalking paint from the surfaces. Use a NIOSH approved respirator when sanding and when working with old, loose paint particles. Provide adequate ventilation. Properly prime the clean, dry surface with a primer from our recommended list and allow the surface to dry completely—preferably overnight. Note: Lower temperature and higher humidity will lengthen the dry and cure times of primers.
Recommended Primer: Bulls Eye 1-2-3 by Zinsser
Application – Platinum Series Metallic Plaster can be applied with a wide variety of tools, creating numerous beautiful finishes. To achieve a layered stone look, use the following 3-step application method.
Step 1– Base Coat With a stainless steel trowel apply a thin, uniform coat of Metallic Plaster base color to entire surface using broad sweeping strokes and firm pressure. Allow product to completely dry, approximately 1 hour.
Step 2 – Texture Coat Transfer some of the base color to a paint roller tray. Dampen the Natural Sea Sponge Roller and squeeze out excess water. Work in sections. Using the roller, lightly load it with the base color and randomly roll product over the surface in all directions, covering approximately 75% of the section’s surface. While product is still wet, use the trowel to “knock-down” peaks, by gently pulling across the surface, holding the trowel at a very low angle (25-30 degrees). The surface will now have some texture, consisting of raised and recessed areas. Allow product to completely dry, approximately 2-3 hours.
Step 3 – Skim Coat Apply a skim coat of Metallic Plaster in a different color or a lighter hue. The more contrast in color or hue, the more dramatic the effect. Work in sections. Load the trowel with product and using firm pressure, skim over the texture coat, pulling the trowel tight and towards you in an arc, approximately 8” in length. “Feather out” the edge of the section by rolling the Natural Sea Sponge Roller, loaded with Metallic Plaster, into the edge, so that no hard lines are visible. This technique will help avoid lap marks, hard edges or build-up due to double application of product. Continue process until entire surface is coated. Around door frames and in tight areas, use a small putty knife to pull and smooth out excess Metallic Plaster. Allow product to completely dry, approximately 1-2 hours.
Dry Times – Dry-to-touch time is approximately 1-2 hours. Full cure is approx. 2-3 days. Dry times will vary depending on temperature and relative humidity
