refinish + refresh

refinish guide

We understand that your plaster masterpiece may need to be refreshed with time - because your table already has a structural three coat plaster - this guide will show you how to refinish and refresh your object using mineral paint - which is essentially a very thin plaster.

We believe the ability to refinish your table to a new condition using this process is what helps make our products exceptional.

We recommended priming twice and a 2-3 finish coat application - lightly sand for a smooth and scuff free surface + seal.

matte mineral paint

Mineral Paints are naturally gorgeous and have a luminous quality that makes colors have a beauty like no other. They are made from sustainable, mineral based ingredients that will create the healthiest home. The potassium silicates micro-crystallize onto the surface, continuously absorbing CO2, and cleans the air in your home for years. The best part is it is highly durable and washable. 

Traditional plaster white is called "grace note" but we like avario white, iron city, and their entire palette. Colors can be mixed, dilutions can be different, and applying lighter colors over dark ones can create a cloudy effect.

mineral paint primer

Versatile, durable, & long-lasting. Organic, mineral primer paint that serves as a universal non-acrylic primer. Recommended primer for Romabio Interior paints. Toxin-free and environmentally friendly.

Apply primer + paint with foam roller for best results.

As an option, you could do a mini three coat plaster by applying the primer twice then (2) finish coats/ (1) primer coat (2) finish coats/ (1) primer coat (2) finish coats - especially recommended when changing colors.

cork sanding block

Although optional - backing your sandpaper with a cork sanding block allows you to reach a good middle-ground between the rigidity of a wood or plastic block, which helps to achieve a flatter surface, and the sensitivity of just using your fingers, which allows for following the acceptable undulations of a larger surface so as to finish the sanding more quickly.

Use 600 grit sandpaper or higher.
