Rendura is THE new textured medium to help you create the finishes we all know and love! Yes we’ve nailed it and are so proud that this one little pot can do it all….that’s right just ONE product to create the look of Natural Stone, Modern Concrete, Sand-Swept or just fabulous all round weathered texture is right here! It’s premixed and ready to go so here’s a run down of how to achieve the finish you want.
Prepare surfaces ensuring they are clean and free from dirt, grease and peeling paint|varnish. Apply a coat of Rendura directly onto the prepared surface using either a brush|trowel|scraper. Rendura can be diluted with a small amount of water to make application easier if required. The Rendura will be touch dry in 30 minutes depending on application thickness but will take a little longer to dry if it has been diluted. Recoat after 2 hours if required to achieve a variety of effects. Different application techniques can be carried out when Rendura is applied and the outcome will vary depending on which method is used.
NATURAL STONE LOOK
Apply a second coat of Rendura and BEFORE it is dry and still tacky to touch – rub a damp sponge over the surface in a circular motion to create layered depths of ‘pitting’. More Rendura can be applied in areas to create extra depth if needed, just repeat the application process until you achieve the required texture. Apply dark wax all over, or just in certain areas, then rub over with sandpaper to expose and reveal the grey undertones of the Rendura.
Apply a second coat of Rendura and BEFORE it is dry and still tacky to touch – use a clean trowel or scraper in a linear motion to glide over the surface, smoothing over some of the texture. You can also use a brush or damp sponge in the same way to blend and level out the Rendura. When this coat is fully dry sand with 120 grit to smooth followed by 180 grit to polish. Apply clear wax for the look of modern concrete or add black wax to age. Buff to the required sheen level.
Apply a second coat of Rendura and BEFORE it is dry and still tacky to touch – use a wet brush to sweep over the surface in a random fashion to create smooth layers of texture. You can keep adding Rendura in specific areas and continue this process until you have created differing layers of texture. After the surface is fully dry sand with 120 grit to smooth followed by 180 grit to polish. Apply a mix of clear and dark wax in random areas and blend together. Buff to the required sheen level.
Apply Rendura with a brush or sponge directly onto the surface. If you need to dilute the Rendura with a small amount of water to make application easier then do so, but remember it will take a little longer to dry. Here we want to create a stippling effect so apply the Rendura in a dabbing motion all over the surface. When this coat is totally dry get some more Rendura and mix it with your chosen paint colour (here Black Ash was used). Apply in the same way but remember to leave certain areas of the grey Rendura exposed. The final colour Green Tea has no Rendura added, and has been dabbed on in specific areas using a small brush. This technique is great for creating fantastic layering effects. Finish with a topcoat sealant of your choice.
Apply a coat of paint to your surface (Black Ash was used) and leave to fully dry. Dilute a very small amount of Rendura to use as a wash and brush over the Black Ash in a random fashion. Remember to keep some of the Black Ash exposed. When dry, dilute your final paint colour with water (Jaded was used) and brush over the surface in a sweeping fashion. Remember to keep some of the previous layers exposed. After the surface is fully dry take a damp cloth to blend and merge the layers. You can keep repeating this process by adding more paint or more Rendura until you are happy with all the blended layers. Use 240 grit sandpaper to gently smooth and polish the surface. Apply clear wax and buff to the required sheen level.
