Colored variants make a subsequent brushing of the plaster superfluous. The processing of liquid plaster is comparatively easy. But there are less layer thicknesses than in classical plastering.

Effect by brushing

In contrast to rolling, brushing with a brush creates organic structures in the plaster as soon as they are applied. The design can be more interesting than when working with the roll.

Additional structuring of the plaster can be achieved after application by special structural rollers or sponges. Even special brush effects can be created by brushing.

Primer required

A suitable plaster base is also a requirement for coating plasters, both indoors and outdoors.

Wallpapers can only be overpainted if they adhere very firmly. The surface must not be cracked and must be level, smooth and dry. Sanding surfaces must be pretreated.

Later occurring cracks (eg in the case of new construction due to subsidence) can be easily corrected at the respective affected areas by brushing.

Lime and clay plasters

Lime plasters and clay plasters are very natural alternatives. They are often offered as a brush or roll plaster because of the easier processing. The prices are much higher than the usual variants.
