The Right Polished Plastering Options
With the material in hand, the first thing we must do is prepare the polished plaster dough. So put all the ingredients on the floor and mix them well with a hoe until smooth.We will still need to put water in this mixture before it is applied to the wall, but we should not do this with all the stroke at once. This is because we do not know how long it will take to tow the wall and the mass can dry out on the floor, wasting the material. So slowly add water until the mixture becomes very flexible as you use the towing paste.
Preparing the wall to receive the plaster
With the mix ready, you must prepare the wall so we can apply the plaster. To do this, start by assembling the teachers.
- Masters are visual guides to let you know how much putty to apply to each region on the wall. To assemble them, start by placing some grout on top of the wall and apply a small piece of tile or floor available just to mark it. Make sure this mistress is exactly the thickness you choose (from 5mm to 2cm).
- Aligned with the first mistress, but at the bottom of the wall, repeat the process and make a second stitch there, again putting some plaster and a piece of tile to mark, when you are done, you will have a career of masters.
Depending on the size of your wall and your ruler for the sarrafting, you may need two or more career masters. It is normal to put two, but you may need more to be visually guided by the amount of mass you will apply. You can go for more info for that part now.
With the rows of mounted teachers, it’s time to fill them. To do this, apply the plaster vertically between one master and the other. The idea is to look like a line drawing on the wall that will be your guide. Let the plaster rest for half an hour to lose moisture and use the ruler to level that part. Repeat the process in the other rows and your wall will be ready to receive the plaster.

Applying the putty on the wall
With that done, it’s time to put the plaster on the wall. The process is simple: put a quantity of dough on the trowel and, with the trowel, toss it into the wall, trying to keep the thickness more or less. Repeat the process until you cover the entire wall with the plaster.
After that, let the dough rest between half an hour and an hour. If you do not do this before you rough the plaster, it will lose elasticity and may crack over time.
After a while, use your mason ruler to do the sarrafting, tapping the instrument on the wall to remove excess grease and maintain your chosen thickness.
Pay attention to whether any region has become a little deeper in the plaster or if the wall has been grooved. If so, apply the grout to these parts again (use the tiller to align more easily), wait for rest, and pass the ruler again.
Finishing the application of plaster
When you’re satisfied and the plaster has no bellies or grooves, it’s time to finish the job. Throw a few drops of water in one area and pass the player in a circular motion. Repeat the process on the entire wall and wait for it to dry.
