  • O’Villa® Sabbina may be lightly tinted with FauxCrème Colors™ or FauxColor™. Do not add more than 6–8oz. of colorant per gallon. Too much colorant will ruin the integrity of the product and obscure the sand-like particles.
  • O’Villa® Sabbina may be thinned with water 10 – 20% with water for spray purposes.
  • O’Villa® Sabbina creates a beautiful finish all on its own; however, it can be layered or embellished with a number of other Faux Effects® products. (Please refer to the RsGranite® workshop sheet for instructions to create a beautiful and realistic granite finish utilizing O’Villa® Sabbina, MicaGlow™ Flakes, Venetian Gem® Finish Coat and RsGlaze®.)
  • Ensure that the substrate is clean and free of grease, dust, etc. For best results apply two coats of SetCoat® Clear or SetCoat®. Allow each coat to dry a minimum of 2 hours, depending on the drying conditions. For a clean, natural colored finish, a neutral white colored base will produce the best results.
  • Using a good quality stainless steel trowel, apply a full even coat of O’Villa® Sabbina to the basecoat. As the product is manipulated, the sand-like particles will gather and form random, natural deposits across the surface.
  • Heavy pressure with the trowel will crush the aggregate slightly, creating earth toned streaks of color resulting in directional patterns. Lighter pressure will result in a more subtle embedded sand effect with less movement. Each layer should not exceed 1/8” in thickness.
  • O’Villa® Sabbina may also be applied by brush or spray and then smoothed with a trowel. Allow to dry until firm, but not dry, approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour.
  • Once the O’Villa® Sabbina has reached the ‘firm’ stage, compress and smooth the material using a stainless steel finishing trowel. Allow to dry thoroughly. When fully dry, the material may also be lightly sanded if desired.
  • Apply a second coat of O’Villa® Sabbina in the same manner indicated above. After the second coat has been compressed, smoothed out and allowed to dry completely, the surface may be burnished lightly with a finishing trowel to bring up a soft patina.

FauxStone™ Pull-Off and FauxStone™ Pull-Off Crusty vary slightly in their consistencies. FauxStone™ Pull-Off is a smooth plaster where FauxStone™ Pull-Off Crusty has super-fine textures leaving a slight crusty finish.
