The natural appearance of wood, with a surprising tactile effect
Lovely to look at and pleasant to touch: the Bark finish reproduces a tree trunk effect, infusing the room with an exotic atmosphere when used in minimal (or even Zen-like) environments. Can be customised in a variety of colours and shades.
JUNGLE Decorative Paints can be applied to various surfaces including cement (new or old), plasterboard, plaster of Paris, wood (new or old), plastic, glass and iron (new or old), provided they are free of humidity, well dry, smooth and have already been treated.
Any loose or dusty paint, as well as any grease or rust, must be removed and the surface washed with suitable soap. Fill the surfaces to be decorated, if necessary, and apply a base coat that is suitable to the type of surface to be treated.
Once the base coat is dry, apply the JUNGLE Range products as indicated below:
1) PRIMER 700. (Coverage 0.080 l/sqm) Apply a coat using a wool roller. Allow to dry for 4 hours at 20°c, then proceed to Point 2.
2) CR 633 already coloured. (Coverage 0.250 l/sqm) Apply two coats with vertical brush strokes only and in the least uniform manner possible. Allow to dry for 30 minutes at 20°C before applying the second coat. While the second coat of CR 633 is still wet, i.e. if the paint is very sticky to the touch but does not stain the hand, proceed to Point 3 and follow the instructions very carefully. 3) CR 634 already coloured. (Coverage 0.800 l/sqm) Using the stainless steel trowel, apply a coat approx. 2-3 mm thick of CR 634 in strips approx. 1 metre wide very quickly to prevent the paint from drying. Run the PV 93 mould above product CR 634 while still wet and scratch slightly wavy stripes into the surface about 1 mm deep, from top to bottom.
Continue with this sequence by applying product CR 634, then run the PV 93 mould over the surface until completing the decoration. Once finished, bring the room temperature to about 20°C to ensure that the “bark” effect reaction takes place; allow to dry for 8 hours at 20°C before proceeding to Point 4. 4) PRIMER 700. (Coverage 0.070 l/sqm) Apply the product by brushing in a vertical direction only from top to bottom and vice-versa, without covering the underlying surface. Use long and light brush strokes in order to create a striated effect on the surface. In this manner, once the colour is applied, the areas decorated with CR 634 and those treated with the PRIMER 700 must both be visible. Allow to dry for 2 hours at 20°C then proceed to Point 5. 5) CR 635 to be coloured prior to application using the VALCLONE Dispensing System or directly by VALPAINT. (Coverage 0.060 l/sqm) Apply the product by brushing in a vertical direction only from top to bottom and vice-versa, without covering the underlying surface Allow to dry for 1 hour at 20°c, then proceed to Point 6. 6) VALFLOK 300 TRANSPARENT. (Coverage 0.100 l/ sqm) Add a coat by brushing in a vertical direction only, from top to bottom and vice-versa, using little paint while applying fairly strong pressure.
N.B: All the above-mentioned phases must be completed without interruptions once they are started, while any areas that have already been coated must not be retouched. BARK JUNGLE KIT: Two JUNGLE KITS are available in order to obtain the BARK effect to decorate 3 sqm or 10 sqm.
