The base of the Ornante Atrium fresco is a flexible layer. The layer is covered with natural plaster to form a wall texture using artistic techniques. An optional element may be, depending on the choice of the final effect, the finishing of the plaster with an intermediate varnish. Subsequent to the previously prepared plaster texture, any image is reproduced using ecological water-based paints.

The intensity of the colors remains the choice. As standard, the material produced has colors imitating classical wall paintings, and therefore delicate, not very intense, slightly faded. The choice of the VIVID option makes the colors of the fresco more decisive and more saturated.

The final production stage is impregnation and giving the material a protective layer that makes it durable and protects the graphic motif against minor damage or loss of color.

installation suggestion

Ornante Atrium Installation Suggestion

The base layer of the Ornante Atrium fresco lets water vapor and allows walls to breathe. Ornante Atrium can be used without restrictions on both walls and ceilings in dry rooms such as living rooms, children's rooms and bedrooms as well as commercial spaces.

The Ornante Atrium fresco installation is based on heavy fleece based wallpaper installation techniques. The adhesive component is spread directly on the wall, and then subsequent fresco blocks can be arranged. Ornante Atrium, due to its thickness and weight, adheres very well to the wall and does not wrinkle. Ornante Atrium is particularly suitable for uneven and porous surfaces where there is a possibility of cracks and scratches on the wall. Ornante Atrium's masking properties are particularly appreciated by customers especially on cracked or uneven surfaces.

The Ornante Atrium fresco installation begins with the previously prepared substrate. The mounting surface can be any type of mineral plaster, concrete, drywall boards, as well as wooden substrates. In case of fresco installation on the already-plastered surface, it is necessary to remove the old cladding before placing the Ornante Atrium fresco. The perfect foundation for the Ornante Atrium fresco are substrates covered with emulsion paints, which only require cleaning from dirt and degreasing. The majority of substrates in the final phase of preparation for bonding should be primed with a solution of wallpaper glue or a primer.

The gluing of the Ornante Atrium fresco should take place in a closed room in temperature between +10 to + 20 °C. Since the interior temperature impacts glue soaking time and the speed of its drying on the wall. All fresco rolls should be laid down before the installation to check their quality and color shade.

The matching of the neighboring blocks of the Ornante Atrium fresco is done using the overlap technique with a double cut. By making a correct wavy cut on the two neighboring blocks at the same time a perfect match is made. Thanks to the wavy shape of the cut it is difficult to be captured by a human eye.
