The different effects of the finish
The application of Micro-cement is craft work in which different finishes can be achieved with the same material. Some effects may be what we are looking for, and others would not. How they are produced will be demonstrated in the following section, and thus how to achieve the desired effects.
The different effects depend on:
The type of trowel used
The choice of trowel type will be decisive for the final appearance, there are two types of trowels: rubber and flexible steel. Flat rubber trowels are used exclusively for the Microfino, the watermarks are slightly less pronounced than with a steel trowel. The rubber trowel exerts less pressure on the product causing the finish to be slightly thicker.
To the contrary, the use of the steel trowel is advised only in the hands of experienced professionals, because an excess of pressure could cause a burned effect and the waters would become darkened.
