Drywall surface preparation

Drywall is currently widely used in the construction of internal partitions. Sheets are fixed with screws, and the joints are aligned using gypsum mixtures. This is a quick and economical way to create any interior solutions.

  1. Gluing only joints of drywall sheets is one of the most common mistakes when repairing and applying liquid wallpaper. If the drywall is not primed sufficiently, then there is a chance that traces of joints between the plates will appear. Therefore, it is necessary to coat the entire wall area with a primer, even if the drywall sheets are even and smooth.

  2. For best results, we recommend applying SILK PLASTER primer in 2-3 layers to the entire surface before applying liquid wallpaper, this is especially important for light colors.

Is the surface ready? Watch our tutorial video to properly prepare liquid wallpapers and apply them.

SILK PLASTER is used for finishing walls and ceilings. It combines reliability, ease of application and original aesthetic properties. A great variety of shades and textures helps to realize the most extraordinary ideas in interior design.

The way of preparation and application isn't complicated and only a plastic trowel is used as equipment. The durability of the material provides its long lifetime. SILK PLASTER is a great decision for those who wants to refresh the interior in a short time.

IMPORTANT!

If you need several SILK PLASTER packages, mix all of them with water at once. Partial mixing of the package is forbidden.

Use only one kneading to cover the whole surface of the wall or ceiling. Don’t use two or more different portions of mixture for the same surface.

Prepared mixture should be used within 48 hours of soaking.

Note the importance of keeping right temperature and humidity throughout the period from the beginning of making up the mixture till the end of application. Air temperature in the working space should be no lower than 15 degrees Celsius, the humidity should be not more than 70%.

Keep SILK PLASTER packages in a dry place with a temperature from 5 to 40 degrees Celsius, away from sunlight. If these conditions are met and the package is sealed, expiration date is not limited.

APPLICATION OF MATERIAL

  1. Combine SILK PLASTER with water

    Considering the surface area value, calculate the amount of total mixture needed. It matters because surface of one wall (or ceiling surface) should be completely covered with material from only one kneading. Pour the water into a plastic container and add the contents of the package. The required volume of water is indicated on the package. The temperature of water needed is 20-25 degrees Celsius. Water should be free from sediment and impurities.

    CALCULATE WATER AMOUNT
    Fort, Miracle 2,5 liters
    Nord, East, Provence, Art Design 4,5 liters
    Master, Optima, Standard, Prestige, Victoria, Air Line, West, South   6 liters
    Relief, Premium 6 liters
    Versailles, Mixart 2,5 - 3 liters
  2. Add decorative elements

    If desired, add glitters and/or other decorative additives, evenly distributing them within the mixture. All types of glitters and additives are purchased separately.

  3. Mix the material by your hand or using a drill

    Mix the material thoroughly by hand to prevent the formation of clots of glue. Some materials need to be stirred using a drill with a mixer nozzle. Read the instructions on the package to find out if using of drill is required for the particular material.Put the soaked mixture in a plastic bag and leave it for 12 hours.

  4. Apply the SILK PLASTER mixture

    In small portions spread the prepared material evenly over the entire surface using the plastic trowel. Wait 1-2 hours after application of the mixture and flatten the surface using the trowel. Wet the trowel in the water before use it.

  5. Apply varnish

    The final step is to cover the wall or ceiling with SILK PLASTER branded varnish in order to increase durability. Varnishing also makes wet cleaning possible.
