How to apply lacquer KRAKELUR

1. Application of Base coat.

Surface has to be painted by paint MOVILAT 7  or MOVILAT 12 using the  roller. This base coat will define the color of cracks. 

2. Application of KRAKELUR lacquer.

After base coat is completely dried apply 1 coat of lacquer KRAKELUR by roller or brush. Intercoat interval between applications of KRAKELUR and top coat is 6 hours minimum. 

3. Application of top coat.

Apply top coat of paint MOVILAT 7, MOVILAT 12 or MOVILAT 25 tinted in to shade contrasting with color of base coat using roller or brush loaded with volume big enough to hide in 1-coat. Aplication by brush (fig. 1). Strokes directed along the track of roller used for KRAKELUR application will cause recreation  of more elongated pattern of cracks, while perpendicular strokes will cause recreation of more uniform pattern. In general as a result of any mode of brush application pattern will contain elongated cracks directed along the brush strokes. In case of application by roller (fig. 2) more diversed and irregular crack pattern will be developed.

4. The surface is done.
 
In case “masking tape” been used as a borderline of decorated surface, then it recommended to cut decorative coating by knife along the tape in order to prevent damage of surface edge while pilling off the tape. To improve water resistance of decorated surface apply 1 or 2 thin coats of lacquer (EKOAKVA, LUOTEN or PANEĻU LAKA can be used). In case pearlescent sparkling effect is desired it is also possible (optional) to admix pearlescent powder PERLIUM of required colour directly to the lacquer prior to its application.

How to apply decoratice paint SCINTILLO

1. Application of primer.

Prior to SCINTILLO application surface has to be coated by KVARC primer. SCINTILLO forms semitransparent coat, therefore in case of color contrast between base coat (KVARC) and top coat (SCINTILLO) is required it is recommended to tint KVARC in to shade contrasting with the color of SCINTILLO.

2. Application of SCINTILLO.

Apply SCINTILLO by wide brush with soft bristles using “criss-cross” or “parallel” movements on to 2÷3 m² surface unit.

3. Smoothering of „white particles”.

After 5-15 minutes (when clear base of paint is already set, but while polymeric flecks are still wet) surface has to be smoothened by criss-crossed or parallel movements of metal or plastic spatula. Very gentle pressing has to be applied on to the tool while moving spatula over the surface and squeezing white polymeric flecks. Blade of spatula has to be kept at acute angle (as parallel as possible) to surface.

4. The surface is done.

 

To provide high degree of washability it is recommended to seal the surface by transparent varnish of required degree of gloss (EKOAKVA, LUOTEN or PANEĻU LAKA can be used). Varnishing of surface also helps to reveal contrast of the structure. In case pearlescent sparkling effect is desired it is also possible (optional) to admix pearlescent powder PERLIUM of required colour directly to the lacquer prior to its application.

Multidirectional application.

Application in one direction.

How to apply decorative paint SETUAL

1. Application of Base coat.

Surface has to be painted by Мovilat Base, Мovilat 4 or Мovilat 7  paints tinted in to shade closely matching  color chosen for SETUAL.

2. Application of 1st coat.

First coat of SETUAL has to be applied by multidirectional movements of wide brush with soft bristles or by INOX rectangular or trapezoidal trowel with rounded edges and corners. Avoid rough surface formulation while applying SETUAL.

3. Application of 2nd coat.

After 1st coat is completely dry, apply 2nd coat on to surface  unit with area 2÷3 m². After 2nd coat began to set but while  is still a bit wet work the surface with creative movements of INOX trowel.

4. The surface is done.

How to apply decorative paint BOREALIS

1. Painting of surface.

BOREАLIS has to be applied on to the surface coated by one of the following paints: MOVILAT 7, MOVILAT 12, MOVILAT 25. If color contrast of base and top coats is desired then surface has to be painted by paint tinted in to shade contrasting with the color of top coat (BOREАLIS).  If color contrast isn’t desired then paint closely matching the shade of BOREALIS has to be used.

2. Application of BOREАLIS.

Small area (2÷3 m²) has to be coated by uneven layer of BOREАLIS using wide bristle brush.

3. Creation of patterned structure.

While BOREАLIS is still wet surface has to be smoothened by creative movements of Inox trowel with rounded edges and corners. Parallel movements will facilitate creation of structure oriented in one direction while multidirectional movements will result in creation of “wave like” structure. In order to enrich relief structure it is possible to apply small additional quantities of product by loading small volumes of BOREАLIS directly on to working surface of spatula with subsequent spreading of the product over the surface keeping same application technique.    

4. The surface is done.
