RsPlaster®

$24.05$73.82

RsPlaster® is an amazing plaster formulation that is easy to apply and remove, resulting in better pattern formation and a more realistic marble finish. When used in conjunction with RsActivator®, silky smooth RsPlaster® allows the artisan to effortlessly create cavities and natural looking shapes that can be burnished to a high shine. RsPlaster® can be further enhanced by layering with other Faux Effects® products, RsWaterWax® and MicaGlow™ Powders.

  • RsPlaster™ can be used with or without RsActivator™
  • To create a more textured pattern coat, add more RsActivator™. The mixture should have an oatmeal like consistency or slightly chunkier.
  • For tighter applications add less RsActivator™ and do not build the mixture on the work surface, allow it to sink into the substrate.
  • Because RsPlaster™ does not require as much pressure/compression to burnish to a high shine; cheesecloth can be used for the burnishing process instead of a trowel.
  • Water can be added to RsPlaster™ if an even thinner version is required.
  • Ensure that the work surface is clean and well sealed. For best results apply RsPlaster™ over SetCoat®. Once the surface is properly prepared, RsPlaster™ may be applied over other Faux Effects® textured products such as LusterStone™. (RsPlaster™ will not accept a color glaze after it is dry.) This product must be tinted with FauxCrème Color™ or FauxColor™ prior to application.
  • RsPlaster™ will dry true to the color it is tinted with. It will not darker or lighten to any discernable degree. Create a mixture of RsPlaster™ and FauxCrème Color™.
  • Mix together a combination of 95% RsPlaster™ and 5% RsActivator™. Do not add more than 10-15% RsActivator™ to the plaster. More activator will cause the plaster to chunk up, while less will keep the plaster smoother.
  • Trowel a full even coat of the mixture onto the work surface. Once this has been applied lay the flat surface of the trowel back into the product and then pull away. This motion will remove areas of the product from the work surface. Paper toweling can also be utilized for this purpose.
  • Repeat this step until a pleasing pattern has been established.
  • Using a clean trowel, go back into the material, flattening, dragging, squeezing and removing the material. This will build the material in areas, creating cavities and raised edges. When flattening peaks of the RsPlaster™ mixture, dampening the trowel will aid in this process. RsPlaster will continue to move and change until almost dry. Once this stage of the finish is complete allow to dry thoroughly before burnishing, approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • Using a good quality stainless steel trowel, burnish the surface of the RsPlaster™ until the desired shine has been achieved. *Note: Sometimes it is better to burnish the plaster when it is not fully dry. The product will move slightly and more edges will form. New layers can be applied over this surface such as Rs Water Wax™, RsGlaze™, LusterStone™ or another color of RsPlaster™.
