A base coat should be applied, and this base coat is mixed with clean water. Initially, the mixture will be sticky and have a thick and creamy texture. It is best to work with a wet edge, and to apply from the same angle, as this aids the consistency of the finish.
Applying this render requires patience, and is often best left to professionals.
Apply the initial coat with a scratch comb, gently scratching the base coat. This finish should be left in place to dry for a minimum of 24 hours.
