Objectives

Georgian run in-situ cornice prepared fro the application of distemper – rabbit-skin glue and chalk.

Purpose

  • Energy and moisture
  • Hygroscopicity and thermodynamics
  • Research and performance

 



Audit


 


Intervention


 

Caulking

Check tracks and remove lumps. Fine Lime Plaster – Baumit Kalkin Glätt  (aka cream cheese), rubbed back with 120 grit on the walls.

Putty – Hodgson multipurpose, cured with whiting (chalk) if necessary.

 

Primer

– Black Friers, Oil based

Denib

 

Undercoat

Undercoat – Oil based

 

 


Glue-size

25 grams of Rabbit skin glue added to 1 litre of water cold water. Leave to soak. Add 1 litre boiling water then add further boiling water (about half a litre) until temperature reaches 57 degrees Celcius. Stand for 24 hours.

Update coverage

Paste

LAP – 250 grams packed, add 5 litres cold water. (twice that specified on the packet)

 

Lining paper

1400 grade.

 

Emulsion

Earthborn Claypaint

 

Distemper

Glue-size and whiting (Rabbit skin glue and chalk).

and 240 grit lining paper

Gloss

Workshop

Peer to peer on-site training, practitioner support, structured tuition and open format learning.

Agenda

  • Design
  • Planning
  • Preliminaries
  • Procurement
  • Risk assessment
  • Preparations
  • Vapour capacity
  • Vapour resistance
  • Systems thinking
  • Team building

Summary

We’ll be working alongside experienced practitioners, learning how to design and plan, as well as the practical delivery.

We’ll consider the underlying objectives of the installation within the broader context of energy and moisture in the home.

We’ll look at the preparations that are required to the walls and how these affect the quality and speed of the installation.

We’ll apply glue size, lining paper, emulsion and distemper whilst understanding how these materials optimise hygrothermal capacity to manage moisture.

We’ll apply primer, undercoat and gloss whilst understanding how these materials optimise hygrothermal resistance to moisture at vulnerable dew points.

Lunch will be provided.

The content will be covered on days one and two, day three is optional providing an opportunity to practice, demonstrate and re-visit aspects of importance to you.

Summary

We’ll look at the underlying objectives of the installation within the broader context of energy and moisture in the home.

We’ll demonstrate the preparation and application of paper and paint, discuss the appropriate material characteristics and how the process affects both the resilience and aesthetic of the installation.
