Step by Step
Old World JewelStone™

Give an old technique a new lift with a little help from JewelStone! This is an easy to-do finish for contractors with little decorative finishing experience. With basic troweling and staining techniques you can master this high-end finish for your most demanding clients. Its old world charm is achieved with its broken pattern and natural umber coloration. The JewelStone contributes a subtle yet contemporary flair by adding a silvery undertone. The JewelStone also isolates the first layer, separating it from the final layers, giving you a truly unique finish!

Application: Thickness does affect the Pro-Venetian Base products. Thicker applications will take longer to dry and may reveal cracking. May be applied with tools such as a spatula and trowel. Coverage: Varies widely depending upon application method: 75-175 sq.ft. per gallon.

Drying Time: Allow 2 hours to overnight, depending on film thickness (68 degrees @ 65% RH).

Clean Up & Disposal: Use hot water for application equipment. Do not dispose of any product in sewers, waterways or municipal garbage. Allow waste product to harden before disposal. If liquid disposal is necessary, contact your local municipality or paint store for instructions.
