Grassello Lucido Application

Grassello Lucido application notes tips and tricks to help you get the best results from this finish.

We always recommend that you apply a base coat of Marmocarrara with all of your applications involving this finish, Marmoclassic, Marmocarrara, Marmobreccia, Marmodorato, Marmocorallo and Stucco Veneziano. The application will be a little easier due to the amount of extra suction added by the Marmocarrara base coat.

Step 1:

Apply a first coat of Marmocarrara quite liberally and making sure to keep as many ridges and trowel imperfections out of the base coat as possible. It will be OK to fall back on what you have spread after about 10 minutes and flatten it down a little. This may be White or colored but we recommend colored.

Allow this coat to fully dry over night.

Step 2:

Apply second coat of colored paste but this time it will be applied using less material than in the previous step and again keeping ridges and trowel imperfections to a minimum.

Allow this to dry for about an hour until you cannot see any wet spots, then proceed with the final coat.

This one will be applied much tighter than the previous one. After about each square meter it will be necessary to fall back and begin to burnish, sometimes another applicator will best be suited to carry out this process only. Allow this coat to fully dry over night.

Step 4:

Apply a coating of either Liquid Beeswax or Marseille Soap Paste.
