How to perform Spartail perfectly
A beautiful wall is not just about paint, tissue or wallpaper – it is about a smooth and prepared foundation.
Learn here how to easily and best smooth your wall, your sawdust wallpaper or your woodwork so that it is ready for the final finish, namely paint.
What you will need:
Sand putty, a wide putty, a couple of narrow putties, a sanding block, a giraffe (a sanding tool with a plate for sanding and mounting on a rod), and sandpaper (grain 100).
Check out the wall
Start by examining how uneven the wall is. It is important to have a good sense of how much to paddle.
Start with the wide spatula to check the wall !
The wall we examined had many bumps – which is why we chose to fully flatten it. Start with the wide spatula. Spread an even layer of putty all over the wall.
Full sharing in progress
Spread the putty over the entire wall.
When there are level differences, there is plenty of sand on the putty, so you get the difference smoothed.
There must be no holes or recesses
It is important that there are no holes or recesses in your putty. This will mean that you have to flush the entire wall from the front when this layer of putty is dry to get a completely flat putty.
Lets Grind The Wall !
Grind the wall with the ‘giraffe’ when the putty is dry.
Put a handle on the giraffe so you can reach all corners of the wall at ease – it’s a lot easier to grind this way.
The entire wall must be sanded
When paving a wall, the most important and pervasive principle is that you fix the entire wall at once in all different stages.
Therefore, sand the entire wall to get a completely smooth and even surface. We used sandpaper with grain 100, which is the most common for this type of grinding.
Use the abrasive pad
Use the abrasive pad around electrical outlets and along hard-to-reach panels.
Do not grind more or less than you did on the large surfaces of the wall.
When the wall is dry, you can suddenly see some small holes in the spar.
You will need to fill these with a small trowel.
Spartling the small holes
The small holes are spartled with a small putty, called a japan putty, so that you do not get unnecessarily much putty all over the wall.
Also grind the wall after the new springs – make sure not to grind too much. The area should match the rest of the wall. After this last retail grinding, the wall is now ready for weaving.
Spartling of holes in sawdust wallpaper
Start by removing any raw plugs and scrape the edge clean.
Putty mass on tube
Fill putty in the hole – and use plenty of putty.
Dip the wall
Take a hard-wired dishcloth and dip the putty until the surface is similar or coincides with the surface of the other wallpaper.
The finished result
Here you see the finished result. To the left you will see a grooved hole completed with a groove – to the right you will see a grooved hole dipped with a hard twisted dish cloth.
The difference is clearly seen.
Spartling of woodwork
When your panel or door frame is stitched with divers, ie. nails without a head, you can paddle them to get a completely smooth surface.
Also use here a small and handy spatula, called Japanese spatula. Make sure to fill the hole completely.
