We let the bonding primer dry overnight, did a final sanding and began the next step the following morning. We mixed the Skimstone layer with our desired color according to the calculations from the website, actually increasing our square footage so we wouldn’t run out of product this time.
The first layer is thicker than the final two. It is like the consistency of a thick milkshake. I did the edges with a regular paint brush. Keep in mind that if you use a paint brush on the surface the brush strokes will show up.
We wanted some of the brown to show through, and it does in some spots. All three coats were done in the same day, with a few hours of dry time in between each layer. They went on fairly easily and smoothly.
I was a little concerned about the ashy grey hue, so stay tuned to see how the final product turned out after the sealer coats!
