LEVICO

1)SUBSTRATE PREPARATION
Carefully clean the surfaces to treat and remove any flaking paint.
Ensure that the substrate is perfectly smooth and eliminate any cracks and blemishes by skim coating. Apply a coat of Fondo 2000.

2)APPLICATION OF ART DECOR FONDO
Apply a coat of ART DECOR FONDO using a short nap roller.
COVERAGE: 10-12 m2/l
OVERCOATING: 4-6 hours depending on the ambient temperature.

3)APPLICATION OF LEVICO
Use a plastering trowel to apply one or more coats of LEVICO at intervals of at least two hours and working in one direction only, either horizontally or vertically, depending on the conditions of the substrate and the desired
effect.

4)CEMENT EFFECT
When dry (at least 6-8 hours), use a wet plastic or steel plastering trowel on the final coat to create a washed cement effect.
Spray tools frequently with water to create the desired streaking effect, taking care to work only in one direction (either vertically or horizontally).
If dark streaking is not desired,use only the plastic plastering trowel.
The characteristic black streaking (light colourtints) is created naturally by the steel trowel.
