Can I apply Marrakech Walls with a roller?

Should I use the Pure & Original spatula?
 
Not necessarily, but we advise to use a light spatula with rounded edges to prevent scratching.
Tools
Should I prep the surface?

Yes, depending on the surface a decent prep may be necessary. For excellent adhesion on non-mineral surfaces, we recommend one layer of Wallprim.
The surface has to be free of fat, dust and has to be coherent. 
 
Can I use any random primer?
 
No, P&O developed wallprim specially for Fresco Lime Paint and Marrakech Walls. We can only guaranty good adhesion if you use P&O Wallprim.
 
Is it possible to apply lime paint on lacquer?

No, unless you sand it until it is matte and prep it with our special primer first.
 
Is it possible to apply Marrakech Walls over latex?

Yes. lime paint can be applied over latex, as long as the Wallprim is used first for good adhesion. Primer can be ordered in the same colors as lime paint.
 
What about Marrakech Walls on wood?

Yes, it's possible to  apply Marrakech directly on bare wood. On MDF we recommend applying one layer of Wallprim. 
 
Can Marrakech Walls be applied on plaster and stucco?

Yes, adhesion on a mineral surfaces is very good, but it has to be dry and solid. Remove loose parts and dust. Wallprim might be helpful to eliminate the absorbent property of stucco.
Surfaces
Does Marrakech Walls revile color?

No, that used to be the case with old lime paint, but not with our products.
 
Is Marrakech Walls washable?

No, not really. Marrakech Walls is porous; it will absorb the stain. We recommend to remove dirt asap with a warm damp cloth and if needed sand it slightly. It's recommended to protect high traffic areas and wet rooms with our Dead Flat Ecosealer. Lime soap will also give protection, but not as much as the sealer.
 
Can Marrakech Walls be applied in a bathroom or restroom?

Yes, Marrakech Walls  is bacteria- and mold-resistant and very suitable for wet rooms. For parts that are exposed directly to water, we recommend making it water repellant and easy to clean with our Dead Flat Ecosealer since water spots can cause stains on lime. Note: we don't support the use of Marrakech Walls on the interior side of showers.
 
Is Marrakech Walls heat resistant?
 
Yes, Marrakech Walls is inflammable.
If protected with Dead Flat Ecosealer; the sealer is heat resistant up to 100 degrees Celsius /212 Fahrenheit.
