Urban Moiré: Metallic Silk Acrylic Plaster
Urban Moiré Plaster is an acrylic water-based plaster resembling silk, used as a decorative finish over stable prepared interior surfaces with this elegant shimmering metallic plaster. Application can be DIY with a combination of brushes, rollers & stainless-steel finishing trowels. This creates proper layering and produces a reflective aspect, adding depth, which offers the illusion of movement and texture, yet is still soft & smooth to the touch. It is a delicate mix of an old look with a new feel.

Alternatively, Urban Moiré can be rolled on the surface and worked with a brush. Some applicators use a scraper blade instead of brush work. In either case, one must be careful when working to maintain a wet edge.
Remember, Urban Moiré Acrylic Metallic Plaster does not need to be sealed.
A common reason for most failures is inadequate surface preparation. As a result, we recommend priming the area with Sharktooth primer in a colour that resembles the colour of the Urban Moiré. We recommend a small test area be applied to test for adhesion where there is any doubt over existing surfaces.
Proper Surface Preparation
To guard against this event, we recommend priming the area with Sharktooth Primer that has been tinted in a colour to closely match your Urban Moiré colour selection.
