Installing the Marrakech Walls
The installation was as follows: we taped the wall with Frogtape. For me for the first time, and honestly, this stuff is fantastic. We have a "popcorn ceiling" which would typically leave a messy edge behind, but no such thing happened.
Anyway, we started to prep the wall with WallPrim, which has already been coloured by Pure & Original. This ensures that the Marrakech Walls adheres well and reduces the suction. We let this layer dry for a day. After that, we covered everything with plastic sheets and looked at the instructions.
The paint looks like a kind of paste, and we did not dilute it. Although it is quite thick, it is smooth and still splashes a little during the application. With a large block brush my friend smeared into the wall, I came after him with the Marrakech Walls spatula. It is recommended to let the paint dry for 10-15 minutes. The drier it is, the easier it is to create a robust effect. However, I wanted it to achieve a quiet wall with no big differences in colour, but with the look and feel of luxury concrete. That's why I troweled the paint immediately after the application. Not only is the result smoother, but the paint is not dragging, so it makes the job a bit easier as well. Pieces of the wall that I troweled when the paint was already a bit dryer are also darker in colour than the areas I did right away. The variety gives a nice effect, and we are thrilled with it.
