One Coat Systems

Plaster base (board)

Pre-filled taped and one coat of plaster compound over all seams and beadwork

One coat of veneer plaster finish and when dry is ready for paint

Cannot tint the plaster on a one coat system or else will dry an uneven colour

Prior to doing the one coat finish you can continue finishing with plaster compounds and bring it to a level 4 or 5 finish, like drywall, achieving a much higher quality and longer lifespan than a drywall job.

Two Coat Systems

This is a mock up of the system

Veneer plaster came out in 1966 to reduce the cost of doing a plaster job, the base coat is much thiner and thats where it gets its name, veneer meaning thin.

veneer base coat plaster. This is done in two layers, “scratch” and “double”. Immediately after set while still wet apply finish plaster.

On a two coat system you can add colour.

You can do various trowel finishes and burnish, can add all colours of sand aggregate and can be finished to look like stoneware. well suited to log and timber frame homes

Clear coat or wax to completion.

Veneer plaster has the highest impact and abrasion resistance and is a superior base for venetian plaster finishes.
