Mix with a whisk the ratio required for the finish you desire for approximately 30 seconds. The lumps present in the mixture create textured effects. To reduce these effects, whip the contents to break all lumps. Here we present the recipe of three easy-to-realize styles that you can model and customize to your imagination.
Mix with a whisk 1 part Fresco for 2 parts Fusion Mineral Paint colour of your choice. Apply a generous layer (1 to 3 mm) of the mixture with the brush. After 10–20 minutes, go over with the brush to crush the lumps. To accentuate the cracks, dry with a hair dryer.
European plaster chalk finish:
Mix with a whisk 1 part Fresco for 8 parts Fusion Mineral Paint the colour of your choice. Apply with a brush in all directions. If there are lumps passed the brush again to break them.
Finished worn, leached:
Mix with a whisk 1 part Fresco for 2 parts Fusion Mineral Paint colour of your choice. Apply a coat of this mixture with a brush. After 10–20 minutes, go over with a brush to crush the lumps. Allow the paint to dry completely before overlapping the other colours you apply in the same way. Create random textures and effects so that the application is not perfect. When the desired number of colours is reached, use a slightly damp green or white nylon pad to reveal the previous paint layers. If you want to avoid mixing colours work dry, with 180 to 220 grit sandpaper.
