FX Lime Marmorino & FX Lime Stucco
(Interior & Exterior)
FX Lime Marmorino & FX Lime Stucco are superior, lime-based, render-like products that reproduce the authentic, classic Venetian plaster finishes. They suit both interior and exterior surfaces and depending on the method of application, produce varying special effects. These coatings can be left flat, or be polished to a fine sheen, to give the exact traditional finishes favoured in Europe for centuries
Ease of application
FX Lime Marmorino & FX Lime Stucco can be applied on all sealed surfaces such as plaster, plasterboard and rendered walls and will produce many different special effects.
All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of dirt, dust, grease, loose or flaking paint, and loose surface plaster. Efflorescence or mould on masonry or concrete surfaces must be treated. Flatten gloss surfaces by thoroughly sanding and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Then apply FX Stucco Undercoat as required before applying the product.
On oil-based walls, sand and apply one coat of FX GP Oil Undercoat and then one coat of FX Stucco Undercoat.
Note: It is important to tint product 24 hours before use.
Note: When using over lime-based cement render, apply while render is still wet. No undercoat is required.
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward action, or preferably use a power-driven mixing paddle.
Requires 2–3 coats applied with a stainless steel stucco trowel. Different sized trowels produce different effects. Place a small amount of product onto trowel and apply as evenly as possible. The trowel is held at an approximate 45-degree angle to the surface during application. Apply second and any subsequent coat using the same method after 12 hours drying time. To achieve a slight sheen, rub the trowel over the surface, held as for the application, while surface is still wet; or when dry, polish using a fine sanding block and trowel. Can also be left flat.
On smooth surfaces only two coats are required. Rough surfaces need further coats.
Note: Do not apply in direct sunlight.
FX Wicked Wax® and FX Liquid Wax can be applied to seal finished surfaces – interior use only.
