Why you should use Natural Bee’s Wax:

There are several reasons for applying Natural Wax: to protect or make Venetian stucco waterproof and shinier; to obtain a different effect or change the shade of the stucco finish; and to protect or obtain special effects with Intonachino.

Its principal characteristic is that it doesn’t change the look of lime-based finishes while offering a protective barrier against water and dirt. It is breathable on lime-based products, giving a light protection against water penetration while allowing vapour transpiration.

The main benefits of using Natural Wax are that it doesn’t alter the appearance of lime-based finishes and offers a protective barrier against water and dirt while allowing the walls to breathe.

It is for interior use.

How to apply Natural Bee’s Wax:

Tools necessary for application: Sponge, TNT soft cloth.

GLOSSY FINISH:

-The Marmorino Classic or Marmorino Carrara must be completely dry for at least 24 hours.

-Treat surfaces no larger than a half a square meter (five square feet) at a time. Apply the wax thickly with a soft sponge going over the same spot two times. Before it dries, remove the excess wax with a TNT soft cloth and then rub to a shine.

-To obtain the deepest shine, go over the surface again several hours later with wool pads using an electric polisher.

-On large walls, to make the application faster and more efficient, it is advisable to work with two people – one to apply the wax and the other to remove the excess.

ROUGH FINISH:

-Intonachino – Apply with a brush and spread it around quickly with a clean sponge float. On dark colors, it is advisable to color the wax with the same colorant used to color the plaster because the wax itself is light and its residues might be visible between the rough areas of the plaster.

It can be diluted to have less shine or to increase the speed of application.

To lighten the Marmorino, it can be colored with our White Dye Powder.
