To start, check the surface. You should also sand and fix any holes or rough spots. 

Roll with it

Use a roller on a pole to apply the Dalapro Roll Nova to clean, dry, and intact surfaces. Apply the product to as large an area as you think you will be able to smooth before the product starts to dry. The wall covering should be smoothed as soon as it is fully applied to the wall or ceiling area. For best results ensure the minimum temperature is +5°C.

Smooth the way

If it has dried too much, open the wall covering once more, and using the roller, lightly go over the drying area.

One final thing

Last but by no means least, skim off the excess product and once dry, make sure to sand it down with 150-180 grit sandpaper. The smooth consistency makes this wall covering easy to apply with a swift eight-hour drying time, which can be achieved with adequate air flow (open windows). Once you are satisfied with the smoothness and appearance, you can prime and paint the surface to finish the project. Drying times can vary depending on temperature and humidity, but it typically takes several hours. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for drying time.
