Hello Glenda and thank you for your question.

The BEHR Premium Plus 1 qt. Satin Venetian Plaster Topcoat should be applied after the VENETIAN PLASTER finish has completely dried (approximately 24 hours).

When applying a topcoat to the surface, use a clean, flexible, 4" (or larger) steel trowel to thinly spread VENETIAN PLASTER TOPCOAT onto the newly prepared Venetian plaster surface. Hold the trowel at a 60º–90º angle and use long and short overlapping strokes. Applying a thin coat will avoid producing puddles in the recessed areas of the surface (this can create a milky appearance on the topcoat). Allow to it dry for approximately 24 hours.

The Behr Technical Team note that one coat of the topcoat is all that is needed over the plaster.

Best wishes on your project.

Hi Glenda,

Please apply one coat of Behr Venetian Plaster Topcoat for added protection on your Behr Venetian Plaster finish. Behr Venetian Plaster Topcoat dries to a Satin finish and will darken / deepen the color of your Venetian Plaster slightly.

Thank you for the inquiry!

Although BEHR recommends 1- they don't say you can't do more. Depending on traffic area,kids, animals,etc....for my peace of mind I ALWAYS do 2-3. I wait 48 hrs between each coat. My 1st project that I did this to is still in perfect flawless condition with no lack of exposure to "life's little misshaps". That room is 9 &1/2 years old in March 2013. I have 2 very active little boys to challenge the durability. Use your judgement according to YOUR circumstances & level of peace of mind!

Hi,

Venetian Plaster produces an attractive and elegant three-dimensional finish that enhances both the light and dark tones of the same color. The result is an aged, marble like look. Unlike traditional paint, Venetian Plaster is applied using a trowel with rounded edges. I am including a quick overview of the steps, however for full instructions you should consult the label and the step by step information on Behr.com

First Coat
1) Load VENETIAN PLASTER onto a steel trowel (with rounded edges) and start at the top corner of your wall. Holding the 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.
2) Wipe off the steel trowel often to avoid dry bits of Venetian Plaster from affecting your pattern
3) Continue this process until the wall is completely covered. Allow the first coat of Venetian plaster to dry for 4 hours before applying a second coat.

Second Coat
1) Returning to the project starting area in the top corner, apply a thin second coat of VENETIAN PLASTER over the previous application. Hold the steel trowel at a 60–90 degree angle and use long and short overlapping strokes.
2) Fill in voids and recessed areas while covering the original wall surface completely. Smooth away any edge marks or high spots with the trowel. Continue this process until the entire surface is covered.
3) Allow the second coat of Venetian Plaster to dry for at least 24 hours and burnish within 7 days of Venetian Plaster application.

Burnish
1) Using 400 or 600 grit sand paper, rub the complete Venetian Plaster surface in a circular motion. Heavy pressure will burnish the surface more quickly.
2) Wipe with a slightly damp rag to remove plaster dust. Burnished Venetian Plaster should have a smooth, polished finish.
3) Once burnished, use the flat side of a clean steel trowel to rub the finish for an added polished look.

Remember, if you are painting a high moisture or high traffic room, it is recommended that you protect your finish with a coat of Venetian Topcoat. Venetian Topcoat is a clear protector that is troweled onto the dry surface in a similar application as the Venetian Plaster.

Thanks for your inquiry!

BEHR has a very detailed easy to use, easy to follow set of instructions in brochure form available at your local Home Depot. They also have a disc version of faux techniques that is well worth the few dollars it costs. BELIEVE ME- I look for instructions that are "idiot proof" since I'd give "DANGER-PRONE DAPHNE" a run for the money! You will also find necessary info on the BEHR website- they update it constantly. Good Luck!
