Application

Apply Liberty Epoque on a smooth, dust-free surface. Surface imperfections can be smoothed out with Liscio, a levelling stucco for walls. After the application of Liscio, apply a coat of Universal primer, properly diluted with water in a 1:5 to a 1:10 ratio, depending on the absorption degree of the substrate. Leave the surface to dry for at least 4 hours and then apply two coats of Breathable Paint at 4-5 hour intervals.

Alternative applications

Three different finishes can be obtained with this product:

  1. Brocade (Silver and Gold) – by trowel
    Spread a 0.5-1 mm thick layer of Liberty Epoque with the trowel, and let it dry for about 6-8 hours. Apply the second coat of Liberty Epoque in greater thickness than that of the first coat. Complete approximately 1 square meter at a time, and pass over the surface with a small metal trowel, applied “flat” against the wall, in circular and irregular strokes, applying more pressure with the front part of the blade. Follow the same procedure until covering the entire surface. This specific effect reminds the fantasy to the precious fabric, the brocade. Note the special gold reflection coming when the material is tinted in colours different from yellow like in this picture.
