As is customary, the walls are first finished with sheets of chipboard, plywood or drywall.
The disadvantage of this method is that we reduce the internal area of the rooms.
Then putty, wallpaper, oil paint or wall panels are applied to the resulting structure.
Recently textured paint for walls is gaining popularity, which allows you to level irregularities surfaces up to 2-3 mm.
Paint can be applied to any surface, and when using special additives, it can be applied as for interior decoration , and for exterior painting of building facades.
The relief and pattern is formed through the use of fillers.
Textured paint is a thick dispersion mass, the basis of which is a polymer.
The relief is formed by special fillers. Manufacturers offer ready-made water-based paint, usually white.
Various shades and colors are obtained by adding colors (special pigments). Substances based on mineral binders are sold in powder form. They are simply diluted with water according to the instructions, the main field of use is facade decoration.
The use of polymer binders allows the surface to withstand mechanical and climatic external influences.
By type of surface textured paint for walls is subdivided :
These are paints with the help of which numerous and varied structures are obtained, which are formed thanks to a variety of fillers. Most manufacturers use natural quartz chips as a filler. Apply the paint with a flat trowel.
To protect against moisture and to give the color depth, the paint layer is covered with wax. Widely used in restaurants, swimming pools and offices.
The pearlescent pigment is finely ground and added to the acrylic base with the addition of water. The wet silk effect is obtained by applying the finished mixture with a roller, in different directions.
As we understand it , a competent choice will allow you to create an original and unforgettable design of your home with your own hands.
To create relief and density, use the following fillers :
up to 1 mm.
Due to the balanced multicomponent composition, we have a number of advantages :
The disadvantages include 2 factors :
up to 1500 gr.
It should be noted that paint consumption depends on the pattern on your wall surface.
It is also possible to use special varnishes to increase the effects.
That is, the tint and color of the pattern will look different depending on the lighting conditions.
We start with the preparation of the wall surface, as already mentioned above , chips, cracks and irregularities up to 2-3 mm are allowed.
The most important thing is to align the walls in a plane, usually a construction laser level is used for this. Moreover, the very texture and relief of the future paint will visually hide most of the defects.
Prepare the prepared surface with primer . You should wait for the primer to dry completely, which is about 4-6 hours to a day. The drying rate of the primer is influenced by the humidity and temperature of the room.
There are times when two coats of primer are required.
The next stage is the preparation of the paint itself. We bring the paint into the room for several hours, so that it takes on the ambient temperature. Some paints have application restrictions based on temperature and humidity criteria, so read the instructions carefully before use.
If you want a flat surface of the coating on the wall, then you should add plain water, no more 1% by volume of paint.
If relief is required, then add fillers. To give the desired color to the paint, add a color scheme. Regardless of the added components, the entire volume should be thoroughly mixed to obtain a homogeneous mass.
Mixing should only be done with a construction mixer and not by hand.
Before starting to apply a layer of paint, we recommend that you look at the photos and videos on the topic: " How to properly apply textured paint on walls ".
Next, we apply the well-mixed paint to the wall.
The layer should be thick, but not more than 1.5 cm. Sometimes paint is applied in two layers. The second layer is applied only after the first one has completely dried.
The layer is completely dry after 24 hours. We apply paint in small areas of about 1.5-2 sq. m.
And do not forget that the setting of paint on the walls already begins 15 minutes after application.
In these 15 minutes, a decorative pattern should be applied.
The following tools can be used to apply a decorative pattern:
With this tool, a drawing of a natural stone is obtained.Coarse spatulas are used if there is a coarse filler in the paint. For other paints, a soft spatula can be used.
If we use a roller with foam rubber or a fur coat, we get a uniform rough surface. And if you wind a rope around the roller, then when the roller moves along the fresh paint, traces in the form of stems will remain on the wall. Professionals recommend using pre-patterned rollers.
You can also apply the drawing with your own hands, just wear rubber gloves.
After the drawing is applied and the paint layer has completely dried, the surface should be coated with varnish or wax.
This is done so that the color and texture will last for a long time.
This is a fairly new material on the construction market. But, despite this, there are many manufacturers of these products.
The price depends on the manufacturer, filler, binder, color, presence of special additives in the composition.
Now we will announce the most popular brands :
The range of prices is very large. So, for example, a 20 kg can of textured paint produced by Bayramiks, Prorab Sandec, on average, costs 1,500 rubles. And Super Decor from the Baltikolor company already costs about 4000 rubles. Arabesco paint from Clavel costs 9400 rubles.
As we can see, the process of applying textured wall paint is simple and does not require the professional skills of a painter.
In this case, you should not carefully and thoroughly prepare the surface to be treated.
The advantage of the paint is its versatility, which allows maintaining the high quality of both the surface and the paint layer.
If you plan to do all the work with your own hands, then we recommend that you practice your skills on a piece of plywood. You can also experiment on plywood with the pattern and texture of the future wall of the room.
