Top Coats Create Unique Interior Surfaces
Top Coats can be hybrid coatings, some utilizing acrylic polymer technology in their formulation to waterproof the underlying plaster. They are supplied in metallic, coloured or tintable bases ready to use. Top Coats form a barrier against dirt and allow stains to be removed with soap and water. Top Coats are a very cost-effective way to produce unique decorative effects.
Metallic Top Coat Effects
Metallic Wall Waxes consist of 14 different pre-coloured metallic and iridescent tones. Top Coat products can be combined into a final stylized finish for interior surfaces, adding protection and profile to the plaster finish. Using Coloured Glazes is a good choice for burnished oxidized bronze or statuary bronze.

For this design, spatula’s & silk curtain stencils create the texture, while a Metallic Wax and Satin Wax complete the finish.

Stonewash pigments, stencils and Zero Gloss Varnish make these design styles ooze with high-end texture.
Burnishing Wax is a very high sheen coating that is paraffin wax based in emulsion. Easy to use and can be buffed with mechanical means, especially suitable for lime-based plasters.
Flat Wax is a universal protective coating; it can be applied with spatulas and polished to a high sheen and can work as a sealer before glazing Lime Plasters.
