Concrete look, Marrakech Walls | Pure & Original

Marrakech Walls - Concrete look or Tadelakt look

Marrakech Walls, with the appearance of concrete or a soft Tadelakt look, will be a true eye-catcher in your home. The results can vary from a classic to industrial style. The choice is yours.

It’s possible to achieve several results, depending on the application technique:
  • A finish with a subtle nuance, by applying just one layer Marrakech Walls.
  • More depth and texture by applying two layers of Marrakech Walls.
  • Tadelakt look with a soft shine, when finished with Lime soap or a high-gloss finish with Italian Wax.
  • Make your Marrakech Walls water resistant and washable with Dead Flat Eco Sealer.
  • A glamorous, high-gloss finish by applying and polishing Italian Wax.
This 100% all-natural, heavy-bodied paint offers many different possibilities, fitting many different styles depending on the application technique and the choice of different finishing products.

Application of Marrakech Walls

  • Prepare a smooth surface, sanding uneven imperfections.
  • Apply one layer of Pure & Original WallPrim (ideally a pre-coloured primer in the same colour as the wall paint).
  • Dilution is not required, as the paint is supposed to be relatively thick. Apply with brush or roller in one generous coat.
  • Wait for 5 to 10 minutes until the paint starts showing some slightly dry spots and use the special Marrakech Walls spatula to flatten the paint evenly in a nice pattern. Avoid raised edges.
  • The next day, sand the surface with 400 grit (or higher) sandpaper. Remove dust and use the spatula to slide again lightly over the wall, to accentuate the shades. The more movements, the more colour nuances occur.

You can also choose to skimcoat a 2nd layer of paint. This 2nd layer provides an even richer, more exclusive appearance and will deepen the colour.

To protect the wall, you can choose one of these products:
  • Lime soap deepens the colour nuances, will give a soft gloss and allows the wall to be cleaned very carefully.
  • Dead Flat Eco Sealer is a matt coating and, after saturation by multiple layers, the wall will be water resistant and washable.
  • Italian Wax deepens the colour and can be polished to a high gloss. The Wax will seal the paint after two layers, making it water resistant and washable. 

Advantages and disadvantages of Marrakech Walls

Pure & Original Marrakech Walls:
  • Is easy to apply yourself.
  • Opaque with a single layer.
  • Is waterproof and washable after applying finishes.
  • Is a 100% mineral paint.
  • Used to create a warm, cosy atmosphere.

Despite the good washability of the paint, we do not recommend applying Marrakech Walls on the interior side of a shower. For usage in the rest of the bathroom and in the kitchen, we recommend protecting the Marrakech Walls with Pure & Original Dead Flat Eco Sealer.
