Marmobreccia Application

Marmobreccia application notes tips and tricks to help get the best possible results from the finish.

We always recommend that you apply a base coat of Marmocarrara with any application involving Marmoclassic, Marmocarrara, Marmobreccia, Marmodorato, Marmocorallo and Grassello Lucido. This will help with ease of application due to the amount of extra suction added by the 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, we recommend colored.

Allow this coat to fully dry over night.

Step 2:

Apply second coat of colored Marmocarrara 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.

When this coat is about 50% dry it is necessary to begin with the final coat.

The process here will be to press in some more Marmocarrara where ever it will go in order to make a uniform smooth finish.

If you want a polished finish ,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.

If you want a finish that will be matte or semi-polished it will be necessary to allow this coat to dry a little before beginning the burnishing process.

Allow this coat to fully dry over night.

Step 4:

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