How to tint ROCKCOTE Venetian Plaster using Giorgio Graesan tints

Giorgio Graesan liquid tints are high quality, water based tints suitable for tinting ROCKCOTE Venetian Plaster.

Colour fast and alkali resistant, Giorgio Graesan tints offer total dispersion in the material, unlike powdered pigments, which are more likely to produce oxide bursts.

The tints can be added to ROCKCOTE Venetian Plaster using the below process anytime prior to use. Note that regardless of whether it has been tinted, the Venetian Plaster, should always been mixed immediately before application. See the product TDS for further details.
