Exterior rendering painted with Johnstone's Pliolite Masonry Paint:
"Johnstone's Stormshield Pliolite Based Masonry Finish is a premium quality, solvent-based paint formulated for exterior use on cement rendering, rough cast, brick and concrete. It provides a smooth matt finish that has excellent adhesion to previously painted and suitably sealed surfaces. The Pliolite resin enables application at temperatures down to -5ºC and becomes showerproof in 20 minutes, allowing all year round exterior decoration"
Needed to be brushed down first - quite a dusty surface!
A bit tired looking perhaps, but an extremely good rendering job done by Russell Prain.
Masked off well, as the windows have been recently stain and varnished.
It's quite a long way up on a windy day!!
The weather was on my side, thankfully!
First coat going on.
Diluted 10% with white spirit so that it sinks in, stabilising the surface.
Time to move the ladder by any chance?
The last few touch-ups...
Three coats, takes a bit longer than water based masonry paint, but it's well worth it.
