Time To Apply Your Plaster

Start With The First Coat

Apply your plaster starting from the corner of the room and apply your way in.

Pay less attention about covering every surface of the wall at this level, your goal is to smoothen the wall surface with your hawk and trowel using a little quantity of plaster.

Go in with second coat

After your first coat must have dried for about 16 hours, it’s time to give it a smoother look with the second coating

What you’re going to do here is to cover your first coat, and how smooth your first coat was will determine the result of your second coat.

Use the drywall knife or trowel to apply and leave it to dry for about 24 hours

Top coat

At this point you’re ready to take things to the next level by top coating your wall.

To top coat your Italian polished wall, use the same method you used to second coat.
