Kalklitir – how to paint a wall

Med Kalklitir kan du enkelt och snygg måla väggar .Jag får jättemånga frågor om vilken yta man kan måla på och om man kan måla direkt på tapeten. Ja det går utmärkt, är det en matt yta så måla direkt på! Är det en highglossy yta på så använd en Acrylic Primer (vit) att grunda med för att Kalklitir ska fästa så bra som möjligt. Det går även bra att måla på strukturtapet.

Här kommer en beskrivning från Audur Skula, grundaren av Kalklitir, på hur du målar väggarna. Även den person som ni ser måla en vägg längst ner i filmen här i inlägget. Ta er gärna tid att kika på den så ser ni hur lätt det är att måla med Kalklitir! Här hittar du Kalklitir sen i webbshoppen.

Painting a wall using Kalklitir.

Preparation:

1)  Kalklitir can be used on surfaces that are painted with acrylic paint, as well as unpainted surfaces such as concrete, gips, matte or structured wall paper, wood etc.

2)  Before applying Kalklitir, all surfaces should be properly dry and clean and free from grease.

3)  All holes and cracks should be fixed as usual, using proper material, and make sure that all repairs have dried completely, and please follow instructions from individual producers.

4)  It is a good rule to apply acrylic primer on top of grease and fixed holes and cracks, in order to avoid any discoloration, and also good to use sandpaper to even out and erase spots in order “to get a good grip”  for Kalklitir.

5)  When using Kalklitir on surfaces that have already been painted with oil paint or are lacquered surfaces, you have to apply acrylic primer before you start using Kalklitir in order “to get a good grip”.

6)  When painting on wood, use proper material to prevent knots from bleeding through.

7)  It is very important to avoid any water coming in contact with freshly painted wall for at least 72 hours!!

8) You will get the best result when painting to layers, and use a good quality pig hair lime-brush.

Can you paint Kalklitir on top of structured wallpapers?

Yes you can paint over wallpaper, we have done that, it was great.!!  I think a structured wallpaper will also look good and it should not be a problem to use the brush, but may take a little longer to do though, as it is structured.

If the paper is matt then she can paint over it right away, but if the paper is with a high glans top layer then I would put one layer of acrylic prime first, and then Kalklitir (two layers) on top
