Terra Dho Application

Professional detailed notes tips and tricks for our Terra Dho application using two color washes produced with our colorants and liquid beeswax.

Step 1:

Proceed with a first coat of Terra Grosso making sure to cover all the surface and at the depth of the product itself. This will have a totally different feel to it from all of our other finishes due to the large size of the grain (.7mm).

For a first coat we recommend that you color the same as the final coat to avoid any White showing through.

Always work from left to right and top to bottom as you progress across the surface to be covered.

Allow fully to dry overnight.

Step 2:

Following the same pattern as before proceed to apply second and final coat. In most instances it is best to have two applicators working a surface unless it is sufficiently small enough to manage by oneself.

The two applicators will complete enough surface so that one can carry on across the surface and the other can fall back and begin to sponge float the surface and do the knock-down process with a clean steel trowel.

Allow this coat to fully dry overnight before applying any wax.

Step 3:

Apply a coating of clear Liquid Beeswax and allow to dry fully. We recommended that you apply a second and maybe even a third coat of clear beeswax and the purpose of this is to seal very well the higher surfaces of the finish.

When you have established to correct color washes to be used you can begin by applying small sections at a time and then wiping off the excess with a sponge.

The purpose of this is to wipe away the colored Marmorino wax from the higher areas leaving it in areas where it can penetrate.

Important Information - Please Note
