Finishing putty is the smallest size fractions, and thus reaches the desired smoothness. Quality is important in the case of walls preparing them for paint, since no paint will not be able to disguise even the slightest irregularity. A big plus “finicky” is that it has a white color and it allows you to use it as finishing materials of all shades and to be confident in the outcome. Among other things, putty, primer coated, provides good adhesion of any finishing materials to the wall, and it is a guarantee that after some time the finish starts to fall off.

putty finish reviews

Before applying the finishing layer of the walls should be primed. In the process, you will need three spatulas: narrow (10-15 cm) wide (40-60 cm) and angular. Little satelcom typed the finished mixture from the bucket and transferred to a wide spatula, which are made and leveling the surface. Angled spatula allows you to easily apply the material to the corners. The thickness of the coating layer should not exceed 2 mm, otherwise when dry it can crack.
