Marmorino Coarse is applied with a metal trowel in three coats. The first coat must be spread abundantly, without imperfections, and left to dry completely. Apply the second coat in a thinner layer, obtaining a smooth but not glossy surface. With the wall still damp, apply the third layer with small strokes, and, immediately after, remove almost all the material. Before the surface dries, gently caress the surface with the blade of the trowel, to compact the material.
