Spray cotton plaster onto walls and ceilings

Cotton plaster is easy to spray onto a wall or ceiling. This type of application is particularly suitable for larger areas. The time required, however, is the same as that of the spatula and painting method, as more work steps and more extensive preparations are necessary. The consistency of the plaster compound can be easily perfected.

Structure and optics

When cotton plaster is applied, it can be painted or sprayed. In terms of time, the two methods hardly differ in normal living space. With the sharpening process, the visual appearance of the surface is given a rougher and mostly more uniform structure.

The layer thickness of a cotton plaster is about three millimeters. When sharpening, this material thickness is achieved in two to four passes. A drying phase of at least 24 hours must follow after each shift. At temperatures below twenty degrees Celsius and a low air exchange rate, the drying time can increase to up to 72 hours.

Mix and try

When processing cotton plaster that is being sprayed, approaching the ideal consistency is the best way to go.

1. Pour a "handful" of the mixed, watered and drawn plaster into the funnel of the spray gun and trigger.
2. If nothing comes out, add a "handful" and try again.
3. Repeat until the first time plaster squirts out of the nozzle.
4th. Every "handful" of water corresponds to about ten percent of the amount of plaster
5. According to the number of rewashes of the sample, rewash the entire plaster in the same ratio.
6th. Let it soak again for at least six hours, longer if it is more than ten liters

Large-scale and unspecific distribution behavior

When the plaster is ready to spray, it is applied from the corners of the wall towards the center. The relatively "lively" distribution is fun, but has to be prepared by protecting windows, frames, doors, floors and skirting boards.

The conventional spray guns with funnels need an angle piece that is screwed in when the spray plaster is carried out on a ceiling.

Tips & Tricks The "liquid wallpaper" is easy to spray onto surfaces. When applying the spray plaster, note that the chemically harmless textile plaster also contains glue, from which you must protect your skin and eyes.
