Utmost importance is shown towards choosing the putty for walls and ceilings and matching wall putty colours, and then utmost care needs to be taken in the application process of putty and paint.

The preparation of surfaces before the application of putty is essential. Cleaning the wall surfaces from dirt, dust, oil or grease using appropriate tools is the first step.

Then the thus ready putty paste has to be applied to the walls and ceilings within 2-3 hours.

Ideally, two coats (to be applied in an upward direction) are recommended to get the best results, with thickness not exceeding 2 mm. After the first application, it needs to dry for at least 3-4 hours before the second coat is applied.
