Product Description
FX Lime Marmorino & FX Lime Stucco are superior, lime-based, render-like products that reproduce the authentic, classic
Venetian plaster finishes. They suit both interior and exterior surfaces and depending on the method of application,
produce varying special effects. These coatings can be left flat, or be polished to a fine sheen, to give the exact
traditional finishes favoured in Europe for centuries.

FX Lime Marmorino & FX Lime Stucco can be applied on all sealed surfaces such as plaster, plasterboard and rendered
walls and will produce many different special effects.
Surface Preparation
All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of dirt, dust, grease, loose or flaking paint, and loose surface plaster.
Efflorescence or mould on masonry or concrete surfaces must be treated. Flatten gloss surfaces by thoroughly sanding
and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Then apply FX Stucco Undercoat as required before applying the product.
On oil-based walls, sand and apply one coat of FX GP Oil Undercoat and then one coat of FX Stucco Undercoat.
Note: It is important to tint product 24 hours before use.
Note: When using over lime-based cement render, apply while render is still wet. No undercoat is required.
Application
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward action, or ideally use a power-
driven mixing paddle.
Trowel: Requires 2–3 coats applied with a stainless steel stucco trowel. Different sized trowels produce different effects.
Place a small amount of product onto trowel and apply as evenly as possible. The trowel is held at an approximate
45-degree angle to the surface during application. Apply second and any subsequent coat using the same method
after 12 hours drying time. To achieve a slight sheen, rub the trowel over the surface, held as for the application,
while surface is still wet; or when dry, polish using a fine sanding block and trowel. Can also be left flat.
On smooth surfaces only two coats are required. Rough surfaces need further coats.
Note: Do not apply in direct sunlight.
Clear coating: FX Wicked Wax® and FX Liquid Wax can be applied to seal finished surfaces – interior use only.
Approximate Spreading Rate: 4–6 square metres per kilogram, depending on application technique and surface
roughness.
Approximate Film Thickness per coat: Not applicable – depends on application.
Requires: 2–3 coats; further coats required on rough surfaces.
Thinner: Not required.
Tinting: Maximum 150 ml per litre (refer to colour chart for tinting specifications).
Method: Stainless steel stucco trowel.
Drying Times (at 25 °C): Touch: 2 Hours; Recoat: 12 Hours.
Note: Do not apply paint if the air temperature or substrate temperature is below 10 °C or above 35 °C.
The temperature should not fall below 10 °C during the drying process.
Clean up: Water. Safety: Glasses, Gloves & Mask. Gloss Level: 20%–30% at a 60° viewing angle after final coat is
polished.
