  • Always apply two coats of SetCoat® or SetCoat® Clear as a basecoat, especially with RsTravertin’O®.
  • Make sure that the work surface is well sealed by applying two coats of SetCoat® or SetCoat® Clear. Allow to dry overnight.
  • Using a good quality stainless steel trowel, apply a full even coat of RsTravertin’O® to the work surface. For best results apply the product 1/32” to 1/16” thick.
  • Finish trowel in one direction, moving from top to bottom in a vertical motion.
  • While the material is still wet, take a stiff bristle brush, with widely spaced bristles and place it onto the wet material at the top of the work surface.
  • Drag the brush downwards in a vertical motion adding a slight wave to the lines as the brush moves to the bottom of the work piece. Rinse the brush with water after each vertical pass. Allow the RsTravertin’O® to dry for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Once the product has set up (should be able to touch it without the material coming off on your finger) dampen a trowel and apply it to the work surface. Angle the trowel until it is lying almost totally flat on the material.
  • Move the trowel over the work surface in a horizontal direction. Continue to make horizontal strokes over the entire area of the work surface. Remember to keep the trowel flat to the surface. The trowel must be kept clean and wet at all times during this procedure. Wipe the trowel clean and re-wet after each pass.
  • Allow the finish to fully dry. Once dry, sand the finish with a sanding block to obtain a nice flat even surface.
  • Other materials may now be applied for further embellishment of the RsTravertin’O® surface. Glazes and color washes may be used. Thins layers of tinted Rs Water Wax™ or skim coats of RsPlaster will also create beautiful, original finishes.
