Win space to live, your hobbies, your guests, by itself, like millions of other do-it-yourselfers, your leave to reshape. What you need is a detailed work plan, appropriate tools and nice, not too expensive material. With these tips you can learn to make decorative plasters.
Plastering belongs to the kind of work that is not just any handyman dares. Yet it is with practice not so difficult to give inside but also outside the walls with decorative plaster mold. And because this patch in different ways and with several types of tools can be applied, you can create a style for every interior fitting wall surface.
Decoration patches have the advantage that there is only one layer of having to be applied. As for the abrasive material, one can distinguish, or blue plaster of working with a roller structure in plaster. In terms of plaster you also have the distinction between natural and synthetic mixed plaster. The latter is ready for use, the stucco should always be created first. Special effects with plastering can be achieved by the addition of a special dye, or colored paint by mixing in a certain ratio - after all, depending on the product used is usually 5% of the volume.
As with all types of paint, the surface must be clean, dry and firm. Moreover, it is recommended to apply primer. This reinforces the substrate and the applied plaster gives a good adhesion. Stay, if possible, within the system, or use the products of one brand. Then you know that different products are optimally matched. In general, the patches available commercially for both indoors and outdoors. Suitable substrates include plaster, concrete, limestone and porous brick and all the walls are solid, slightly rough finish and not too absorbent. Walls of aerated include very absorbent. The water is thereby rapidly removed from the applied plaster which makes it no longer adheres. For aerated concrete is a special stucco. In humid areas such as bathrooms and kitchens on the other hand, you need a cement plaster. Drywall should be primed with a primer for better adhesion. Even hardvezel-, chipboard and plywood sheets can be worked with plaster decoration. They must then first be primed with a wood primer. Layers of paint and latex paint can, if they first well geschuurt be directly plastered. Chalk-containing paints must, however, be prepared so that the substrate is strengthened. With dark surfaces, it is wise to bring a light primer which also increases the grip on the ground. Take the primer of the same brand as the used patch.
The structure of granol caused by grains that are added to the abrasive patch. The pellets are, depending on the species, between 2 and 5.5 mm in size. At grain structure free plaster and paint structure, the structure is only determined by the tool used to the applied patch releases the motif. That structure may be rollers, but also other tools.
In all types of plaster must be applied within a certain time after the application of the structure because then they are too dry. The wet on wet rule also applies to the application of plaster. In order to get no visible feed lines, it is necessary that the whole wall is made in one go. You must therefore the size of the plane so that you can define rendering and editing, before the transition when the wall is plastered beyond has become too dry. You can on the freshly applied plaster first try a few motifs with different tools. As long as the plaster is soft, you can smooth the unlimited again, until you have a design that you like. A tip for when you are working in pairs: never change each other when applying the pattern. There are no two people who do exactly the same motive, so the difference will be visible. For plastering work outside are special regulations. You can not plastering when the sun shines directly on or in strong winds, fog or high humidity, rainy weather or frost. The drying time from the outside plaster amounts to at 20 ° C and a relative humidity of about 60% for about 3 days. In adverse weather conditions, this time can be longer.
If after a number of years, has had enough of the plaster, this can be renovated with little cost. There are, for example, marks of which the plaster with a putty knife and some water can easily be removed again. In the patch of course, one can apply a thin layer of plaster, which is then processed again or can be re-plastered. Over the years it may be some yellowing plaster and dirt adhere. Therefore, choose rather a kind of plaster that can later paint over without problems. If you take a natural plaster, choose a silicate paint. This paint does not adhere as ordinary latex paint on the plaster, but penetrates into the substrate and there is a chemical compound participate. If paint resin plaster silicate is not suitable. For this kind of a plaster-resin dispersion.
