Easy clean-up
FX Stone is a premium product, producing many different special effects on all sealed surfaces such as plaster,
plasterboard, and rendered walls.
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 Lemon Tree Creek® Sealer Undercoat as required.
Application
FX Stone is a pre-tinted product but can be further tinted to various colours.
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward action, or preferably use a
power-driven mixing paddle.
Trowel: Apply first coat with a stainless steel stucco trowel, as smoothly as possible. Different sized trowels will create
different finishes. Apply second coat using the same method after the first coat has dried for 12 hours.
