Special effects with textured surfaces
Sometimes you do not even need paint, as wall surfaces treated with filler can be left unpainted. Various coloured fillers with different degrees of roughness are available. Textured surfaces with a rugged, somewhat industrial or a romantically decadent air can be excellent just as they are.
Textured surfaces provide a good background for modern loft-type homes. In kitchen and sanitary facilities, it is worth treating surfaces with Panel Ace Log Treatment or mould-proof Supi Sauna Protection.
Rendered surfaces of smooth filler, concrete plaster or old whitewash effectively attract attention in rooms that are otherwise finished to high standards. These surfaces however tend to produce dust. Indoors, it is advisable to treat them with Supi Sauna Protection.
The light Presto LF Renovation Filler is also suitable for stencilled patterns, and produces a subtle relief effect. The filler absorbs water like watercolour paper, and any patterns or decorations painted directly onto the filler are transformed into nebulous works of art. The filler layer should be no thicker than 1 mm to avoid cracking.
Luxurious though unfinished. Beautiful, relief-like bedding textiles and a daring, almost sketch-like wall surface make a good combination. The subtle filler pattern created with Presto adds the finishing touch to a harmonious bedroom.
