Pick one of your favourite colour as base coat. [Refer to our earlier article on ‘Tips for choosing your perfect plasters colours’ -link ] Here, we will be demonstrating using Vellcco SC01.


Apply reasonable amount of plaster on the side of trowel.


This is where you apply your base coat of plaster. Perfect one should be really thin layer. Little tips: apply at an angle of 45 degree. Repeating step of draging the trowel in a long motion, gradually flattening it to the wall as you go until you evenly cover the whole wall.Then, let it dry for 4 hours.

STEP 4 – 2nd layer

In our demonstration, we have used a different colour of Vellcco [SC02] to create textures by tapping it on the same wall using sea sponge. The secret to this is to use some firm pressure as you’re tapping throughout the wall. Then, leave it to dry again.

STEP 5 – 3rd layer

Here, using a different colour of Vellcco again [ here, we have used SC WHITE] to bring additional and more complex textures. Apply it on the wall using the same method in step 4. Then, let it dry for another 4 hours.

STEP 5 – burnishing

Finally, you can end your work by lightly burnish it using your trowel. This is where you can run the empty trowel with a firm pressure over the entire wall to finish. And you’re done! Or, you can add on another layer of wax do so that it’s water resistant.
