Our rule is to always redecorate over new platered surfaces. Why? So our plastered surfaces always have a great finish. As well as the right paint product, there is a certain way to prepare new plastered surfaces. 

1. Stick clean off water marks

2. Cut in cove and apply first base mist coat of emulsion
3. Then four more full coats of emulsion
4. Fourth coat of emulsion on the ceiling looking good

5. Check for any imperfections and fill,
then final four coats of emulstion

6. Then a full redecoation of the rest of the room

7. The wood ...

8. ... and finally the walls

Job done. Time for a cup of tea!
