Acrylic Rendering Guide

Interior walls built of either brick or cement are often coated with plaster to make the finishing smooth and durable. As for the outer side, rendering improves its longevity and sturdiness.

There are many types of rendering, like cement-based rendering or clay rendering. One of the renderings is called acrylic rendering. It is the most advanced type of rendering available.

What is acrylic rendering?

As the name suggests, this technique incorporates acrylic plastic in the render. It effortlessly applies to various types of walls, including uneven concrete, fiber cement, and painted masonry.

It has gained traction over the recent years and is now preferred over cement rendering as it exhibits versatility and heightened durability. Acrylic is an excellent choice if you want to guarantee that your walls don't crack, may it be rain or shine. You might do a double-take at its price, but you'd surely get your money's worth.

  • Spraying 

This is probably the most common application technique for acrylic rendering. Spraying requires preparation of the fresh acrylic mixture and at least three people to actually perform the procedure. Two persons will spray the mixture on the wall, and one will fill the reservoir with a freshly-made rendering mixture.

  • Toweling 

In this method, the mixture is applied and smoothened onto the wall using a towel. It is necessary to use a smooth, flat towel to aid in easy application.

  • Rolling

If you're looking to have a unique, textured wall, then you can use special masonry rollers with designs to achieve this. These would be dipped into the acrylic mixture and rolled onto the walls to give it your desired finish.

  • Brushing

Among all ways to apply plaster, this is the most basic. You just have to prepare the mixture and apply it to the wall in the same manner as the paint is applied using a brush. This yields a moderately smooth finish and requires less manpower.
