A technique you must know !
The "wet on wet" technique is used since centuries with polished plaster as the best way to obtain smooth and marbly finishes. Applied to microcement, it will give a very similar result to a "marmorino fine" in Venetian polished plaster. The surface will have a better compaction and will be very smooth. This course will also show you how to achieve different looks with a few variations in the process of application to obtain soft or deeper marbly effects, distressed, very flat or slightly textured surfaces, which will all have in common to be smoother thanks to this technique.
The beauty with this technique is that it is not brand specific so you can obtain consistent results with almost any brand of microcement and keep the one your are currently using to obtain similar finishes !
The content of the course :
Learn the application process
You will learn everything you must know about the application process and timing for when and how to apply the second coat to obtain smooth finishes.
The sanding process

Different finishes and looks
You will learn how to obtain different looks simply by using this technique with a few variations in the process of application, such as a deep mineral look, a softer one, a distressed look a slightly textured look and another one completed with a hydrated compression.
