Preparation Unpainted surface:
Clean the surfaces from dirt and dust. Level with a suitable Presto Light Filler. Prime all untreated surfaces with Varma Primer or Feelings Universal Primer. Paint the primed surface once with Harmony, Feelings Interior Paint or Joker. The paint should be tinted to the same colour with the stone coating to be applied.

Previously painted surface:
Wash down previously painted surfaces with Maalipesu Cleaning Agent and rinse carefully with water. Fill possible holes with suitable Presto Filler. Paint once with Harmony, Feelings Interior Paint or Joker tinted to the same colour with the stone coating, if the colour difference between the substrate and the coating is significant.
Humid rooms:
Prime with Feelings Extra Durable tinted to the same colour with the stone coating.
Coating Application by steel trowel (small areas):
Apply by steel trowel a smooth coat of approx. 2 mm at a time to an area of approx.1-2 m² . Smooth the coating by sloping the trowel lightly and gently over the surface. Check that the stones are spread abundantly and closely and to the whole area. Adjust limits of pauses and borders of various cans to an unobtrusive spot.

Application by steel trowel and grinding (big areas):
On large uniform wall surfaces a jointless surface is easiest to make by applying the product twice. Apply by steel trowel a smooth coat to an area of approx.1-2 m² . Smooth the coating by sloping the trowel lightly and gently over the surface. After the first coat has dried, apply the second coat of Tunto Stone thinly.
Grind the surface immediately (max. after 15 min.) by pressing lightly with Tikkurila plastic float. If the float does not move lightly, there is too much of coating. Remove the excess coating with a steel trowel.

Application by spraying e.g. with a plaster pump or a funnel sprayer:
Apply by spraying with a low pressure from approx. 1 m distance in a circular motion along the surface. Smooth the coating by sloping the trowel lightly over the surface. Uniform surfaces are sprayed without interruption.
Wet fillers like Presto Light Filler are suitable under Tunto Stone coating. When using dry fillers, the filler has to be cement reinforced . Ventilate the area thoroughly prior to taking it in use.
Cleaning of tools Remove excess coating from the tools back to the paint can to avoid clogging the drainpipe. Clean tools with water.
Maintenance instructions The surfaces are cleaned with a damp brush or as dry cleaning using a vacuum cleaner.
Handle the surfaces gently during few days after the coating is applied as the product achieves its final hardness and durability after approx. one month in normal conditions.
