For Best Results:
Before you begin, make sure you clean and prepare your walls and protect your furniture. Refer to our how-to, "How to Prepare a Room for Painting" for more info.
BEHR PREMIUM PLUS with Style® Venetian Plaster should be applied only on primed surfaces or on surfaces previously painted with an Eggshell or lower sheen of paint.
The application items you'll need include a flexible 4" steel trowel, 100 grit and 400-600 grit sandpaper, a deep-well paint tray, and Behr Venetian Plaster and optional Venetian Plaster Topcoat.
Begin by rounding the corners of a flexible steel trowel using 100 grit sandpaper to reduce edge marks during application.
Load Behr Venetian Plaster onto the steel trowel and start at top corner of your wall. Holding a steel trowel at a 15 - 30 degree angle, spread a thin layer of Venetian Plaster onto the surface using long and short random strokes. The original wall surface should peek through in certain areas.
Continue this process until the wall is completely covered. Allow the first coat to dry for 4 hours before applying a second coat.
Return to the original starting point (top corner) of your wall and apply a thin second coat of Venetian Plaster over the first coat. Hold the steel trowel at a 30-60 degree angle and use long and short overlapping strokes to achieve an irregular look to the final finish.
Continue this process until the entire surface is covered.
