Default Lusterstone and Lincrusta in a Turret

Hey everyone! My client needed some fancy painting for their new home.

We decided on a product from Faux Effects called Lusterstone for the dome of the turret. I mixed the color custom. It's an easy product to use and people love it. Think 'sort of glittery Venetian plaster'.

We went with a multi painted finish for the Lincrusta on the walls.

These are the samples

Start with a basecoat similar in color to the Lusterstone

Next, you roll on what is pretty much a scratch coat. Let it dry. Lightly sand,followed by two or three troweled on applications in a random pattern. I just used a six inch plastic trowel.

So, that's the scary scaffolding the GC put up and since I couldn't reach part of the dome.... I put up my own scary scaffolding.Lusterstone and Lincrusta in a Turret-img_20170307_140328401.jpg

So, I put up blankstock for underneath the Lincrusta as advised by the pros here on PT. .....And, yes I am doing the Lincrusta myself.

This is hard work!!! I'm not used to working this hard. I was going to fill these gaps with Swedish Putty, but it's sort of too soft. I need something like Play-Doh. Any suggestions??

No! The GC put up the wooden thing. There's going to be a 300lb chandelier going up there.

Thanks,chrisn. The instructions said to use caulk, but I figured there was something better.

I hate caulking.

BTW- TIL that Lincrusta stretches and morphs in ways you don't want it to, especially if you take too long positioning and re-positioning it. Also, the pattern on the right side of the strip isn't always in synch with the pattern on the left side. Gah!

That last picture reminds me why I've only done wallpapering once in my entire life. I'm glad there's folks out there that enjoy working with that stuff. I wouldn't have the patience for it.

That stuff is nothing like wall paper, it is in a class buy itself. Not one that I take( class) The seems MIGHT line up once in awhile but it all depends on how consistent you are with the moisture content( paste, etc) I did it once, hated it and turned down any jobs after that.

I agree about the moisture content. The instructions say to wet the back with hot water for twenty minutes. It took a bit for me to get in a rhythm between putting up pieces while others were soaking.


I think I got one roll where the one side is stretched somehow, but only every second repeat....if that makes any sense.

None of the other rolls were off like this. Of course it's the last roll and my scrap options are limited.

Maybe this is one of those "what color is the dress" things, but I see a green bakers straddling the hand rail. Or maybe your talking about something else.

Well the wheels are locked, I needed every inch I could get. Plus I added outriggers after that pic was taken.

To add- I looked at other options. 5x7 scaffolding was too big and the crossbars wouldn't go over the railing. Any type of lift wouldn't fit in the tight space at the top.
It's not the worst set up I've been on.

and if you contacted the manufacturer they would say "this is the first time we have ever heard of this problem", so you must have done something wrong

Okay, so the manufacturer says to spray with degreaser and let sit for ten minutes and then wipe it off. That stuff reminded me of when my Dad would re-fill his lighter. Strong!

It also says to wash down the walls with soapy water. Yeah...I'm skipping that part.

I got all the pieces up and oil primed.... started caulking with a good caulk and it's shrinking.
