LusterStone Applications

Hello to all,

Betsy was interested in Lusterstone, so I thought I would start a new thread on it. Lusterstone comes in 42 pre-mixed color...This is one of my favorite products and I sell it on almost every project.

Here is a picture with steps on how we acheived the look.


1.) Roll two layers of black Set Coat; let dry.
2) Rub Copper leaf on wall where Modello design will be. Clear Set coat over copper to protect from tarnishing
3) Apply Modello Design over copper
4) Roll first layer of Lusterstone Brown Suede over all the walls and Modello.
5) Trowel second layer of Lusterstone Brown Suede on(let dry)
6) Finish with a tight skim over all.(let dry)
7) Pull Modello out to reveal the design.

I hope you enjoy this finish.

Susan

Re: LusterStone Applications

O. My. Goodness. WOW, that's so cool! I always wondered how that was done, I thought it was handpainted or stenciled over the lusterstone, I had no idea it was under it! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing the process, Susan!

Any thoughts on doing something like this over crappy 70's paneling? (This is a personal problem of mine... ) I'm wondering if Lusterstone would adhere to it (I would fill the grooves with joint compound). We've discussed the possibility of me just using jc for the whole process, but wow is this pretty...

Re: LusterStone Applications

Thank you, Susan!

A couple of clarifications, if you would be so kind:

4) Are you rolling on with a sponge roller?
5) What type of trowel do you recommend for this step? And is it 100% coverage?

This is so pretty!

Re: LusterStone Applications

Sure you can borrow the image Sue Ann. No problem.

Roll with a hotdog roller..well, thats what I call em'...you buy them at H.Depot, they come in a 12 pak, called rollerlite 1/4" nap.. they work really well.

I use a pavan stainless steel trowel medium in lentgh. Yes it is 100% coverage.

I just love the product and I sell a ton of it in my contracting division, and you will too, trust me. I just had a student sell a $10,000 dollar job 2 days out of class.. and no I am not marketing my school, I am just sharing techniques with you. Enjoy!!

Hope this helps!

Susan
