Rational Venetian smoothing technique

Stucco Romano 939

Jaeger Stucco Romano is a mineral-based and emulsion-bound decorative Fine Putty for the efficient execution of decorative smoothing trowel techniques. With just two layers, a porcelain smooth surface in the style of the original Venetian smoothing techniques can be achieved.

Shimmering like porcelain

Everyone will gaze with amazement at these surfaces: What kind of material is this? Porcelain-smooth and shimmering, much like in an antique Italian Villa! Our very effective smoothing technique with Stucco Romano only requires a few steps, and offers affordable luxury in silky gloss or high gloss.

Processing of the smoothing technique: This is how it's done

1. Substrate preparation: Priming of the surfaces with Jaeger Iso-Mineral Primer. Thoroughly smooth the substrate, since any existing scratches will later emerge through the putty technique.
2. Smoothing trowel technique: With the smoothing trowel technique, Jaeger Stucco Romano is applied in two thin layers either tone in tone (Italian technique) or with different colours (from light to dark).
3. Polishing: After the drying, perform a sanding with P1200 sandpaper, remove the dust, and use the Veneziano Spatula to create the desired level of gloss. Alternatively: sand with P1200, remove the dust, sand with P2000 with the geared eccentric sander Rotex RO 150 FEQ from Festool, and subsequently polish with P4000 until the desired level of gloss is achieved.
3.1. Wax finish / Antique Soap: In particularly stressed areas, such as in retail spaces, restaurants and corridors, it is recommended to create a protective coating with KronenĀ® Wax-Finish or Antique Soap. For this, and perform a thin but full-surface application of the KronenĀ® Wax-Finish with the Veneziano Spatula, and polish to a shine with the stainless-steel spatula afterwards.

Attention: When using Wax Finish or Antique Soap, the surface may not be polished prior to the application.
