Characteristics

Le Velature is a decoration of the Antiche Terre Fiorentine Candis line, belonging to Le Classiche family. Averagely transpiring and ecologic, it is based on selected pigments and resins of a very high technological quality in a watery solution. The decorating cycle foresees the wall application on a white ATF base as supplied and over it, spread Le Velature added to the ATF toner, with brush, glove, sponge or cloth, to create the desired tonality. To get an excellent result, the white ATF base must be applied with a pasting brush, a roller, or spray with the appropriate compressor. Two coats are advisable, the first by diluting with 20-25% water, and the second with 15-20%.

After applying the base, the mixed LeVelature can be spread with the choice of a quarter, half, one or two toners. If the 19 or 20 (Gold or Silver) powdered toners are used, it is advised to dilute the decoration with 1 or 2 glasses of water per tin.
