Thread: I have a few renovation questions

  1. #1

    I have a few renovation questions

    1. What type of mortar should I use to apply the new tile

    2. What color water does a very dark almost indigo blue plaster create

    3. Also what is the ratio of white portland cement to marble dust for plaster and about how may sf do you get from a mixtue.

    Thanks

    You can set tile with SGM thinnest. I prefer sanded. Or you can use Portland and pool mix. 2 parts Pool/sand mix to 1 part portland. That's the same ratio they use to plaster. As far as the color. It will be the color it is when it's mixed.

    Corrected. Lack of sleep clogs my thought process. My fingers were saying one thing and brain was saying another.
