Decorative Lime Plaster for a travertine limestone look
Travertine is an attractive limestone with a slightly porous structure, often used in architecture to decorate particularly exposed areas. Thus, the world famous St. Peter's square pillars consist of Roman travertine. With the natural lime plaster Jaeger Travertino, a recipe which consists of long-deposited marble pit lime and a selected mix of fine marble dust from Carrara, it is possible to quickly and easily decorate wall surfaces in interior areas and even protected outdoor areas with the exclusive Travertine look. Jaeger Travertino is highly diffusible, and naturally antibacterial as well as mould resistant.
Processing of the Travertine limestone look: This is how it's done
Priming: Prime the surfaces with Jaeger Mineral Primer 309, and allow it to dry.
Application principle: Jaeger Travertino is applied in 2 layers with the Jaeger Smoothing Trowel or a painter's trowel.
Evenly apply the first layer, and let it subsequently dry for at least 12 hours. Evenly apply the second layer. Press this layer with the trowel, and then roughen the surface with the trowel edge at a 90° angle to create the Travertine effect. After a further short drying time, press the surface again with the trowel. This will create a satin-like appearance.
Wall joints: If wall joints are desired they are carved into the still wet layer. Drying time of 48 hours.
Impregnation: Apply 2 layers of Jaeger Antique Soap 985 with a cloth or sponge, and repolish.
