Here we will tell you about the type of painting - Venetian paint, as well as the technology of its application.
What is it? Venetian paint is a variant of finishing the wall with paint using various technologies. In order to try to do this with your own hands, you must have at least minimal skills. The costs are not large and the material is generally available.
Currently, wall decoration in this way is becoming more and more popular. One of the most important points in renovating a room is wall decoration.
This can be done by pasting wallpaper, painting, finishing with decorative putty. Simple wall painting is a thing of the past, now it is done using new technologies.
The newest invention in the field of construction is decorative plaster. In recent years, it has been replacing wallpaper more and more. Using this decoration, you can give the walls originality.
Note: Materials that are harmless to humans and the surrounding nature are used exclusively for decoration.
This finish is universal and can be used absolutely for any premises.
A bit of history
In ancient temples and palaces, such a technique was used when painting walls, represented by decorative plaster. Such painting was considered quite an expensive pleasure that only people with good income could afford. The masters did not share their secrets, knowledge was passed down through generations, from father to son.
In fact, Venetian paint was an imitation of marble. Today, this type of finish is gaining more and more popularity. Thanks to a wide palette of shades, it can be used for absolutely any interior. The coating can be made both matte and glossy.
Decorative paint can be used to recreate the effects of silk, wood, stone, etc.
on the wall.
Note: They differ from the usual ones in that they are eco-friendly, versatile and aesthetic.
The most optimal type of finish is the plaster effect, thanks to which irregularities can be hidden. The most common overflow paint, as well as a chameleon color that shimmers from different sides.
The advantages of the Venetian are - safety, durability, moisture resistance.
The surface is easy to clean and can be repaired with a color change.Manufacturers give a 10-year warranty.
Before choosing a technique, what color will be applied, you need to bring the surface to the appropriate form. The old coating is removed.
It is imperative to check the reliability of the plaster, whether there are places where it departs from the wall. If there is, then such places must be re-plastered. Make sure the surface is free from errors, crevices, protrusions. All this must be eliminated.
Afterwards, the surface must be passed with fine-grained sandpaper, then the remaining dust must be removed.
The wall is primed using a deeply penetrating compound. As soon as the primer is dry, start painting.
Needed for work:
Foam roller; Master OK; Foam sponge for drawing; Rags to eliminate smudges; Containers for liquid materials Bucket with water; water-based paint of different colors; Old plastic bag for covering the floor.
Next, you need to strictly adhere to a certain order of application. We prepare everything you need for this.
Latex paint is poured into 2 containers. We will add a dark color to one of them, and a light one to the second. It is better not to completely mix all the paint with the color scheme; on one side of the tray, the paint should differ slightly from the paint on the other side. In order to get the desired shade, more dye is added. A small amount of light paint is collected on a plastic spatula and gently distributed over the wall surface.
Make sure there are no smudges. After that, a dark color is taken. It turns out a wall with dark and light areas.
As if imitating Venetian-style plaster, blend the colors with a soft sponge in a circular motion on the wall surface.
Important: The paint is applied with a plastic spatula, as metal can damage the wall.
After drying, patterns are applied.
Why pour a drop of gold or silver paint into the container (which is most suitable for your tone). Then we take a regular bag, crumple it and dip it in paint. Apply blots to the wall with chaotic movements. For more orderly work, you can pre-mark the surface. After applying the blots, take a soft brush and lightly blend the spots without disturbing the intermittent structure.
Note: The bag can be replaced with a porous sponge. However, the pattern and structure will be different.
Oil paint application technology is slightly different. Surface preparation is carried out in the same way as for latex paint. After that, the surface is covered with an almost transparent slightly pink paint in two layers with drying of each layer.
We take a translucent glazed paint and apply medium stripes to the wall. Then, using a woolen rag, rub the paint with chaotic movements. Then you need to walk over the surface with a soft brush for better shading.We leave the wall to dry completely.
The glaze paint is prepared as follows: mix in a ratio of one to two linseed oil and diluted turpentine, to which a couple of drops of desiccant are added, and half a tube of oil paint.
Everything mixes well.
The shade is selected closer to the Venetian. Here you can use light ocher, natural sienna, umber, brown mineral pigment from natural clay.
With the help of this paint, you can make an imitation of Venetian plaster on the walls and ceiling of your house. It is important to choose the right colors and shades.
For a small room, it is better to choose light colors that can be combined with silver. In large ones, saturated green, blue, apricot, burgundy tones in combination with a sandy base will look good. Gold patterns are used to add luxury.
