Plaster “bark”: photos and examples description
The title material was due to the fact that it creates a surface that resembles the structure of the tree, eaten by larvae of beetles. The surface of the plaster has a grooved structure. These grooves have a different direction, size, depth, length and accuracy.
The plaster consists of two fractions: small, in the form of a filler, and large granules. The granules are round stones of approximately the same size. They determine the width of the grooves, the thickness of the layer and the consumption of plaster “bark beetle”. The number of granules in the material determines the accuracy of the drawing.
The principle of applying the plaster “bark beetle”, the video clearly shows the sequence of actions is the following: when on a flat surface using a metal trowel to apply the material with a thickness approximately equal to the size of the coarse fraction, the pellets begin to spread the filler, creating furrows. To move pellets horizontally, vertically, crosswise or in a circle, you can use rectangular plastic trowel. Is formed as a pattern reminiscent of wood, eaten by beetles-bark beetles.
In the application of decorative plaster “bark beetle” on the surface, do not be too put pressure on the trowel as longer and more will be rolled out material, the less noticeable will characteristic pattern. The surface in this case will be glossy, as in the use of Venetian plaster in the interior of the house, a photo that displays this effect on the surface of the walls.
A useful tip! Do not lay the material is too thick, what would be the reason for the appearance in a short time on the surface of the cracks.
In the composition of the plaster “bark beetle” there are granules of a certain size, which determines the marking material. The particle size can be from 0.8 to 3.5 mm. on this Basis, it is possible to determine which works fit this mix. For example, if on the package marking is K20, which means that there are granules with a size of 2 mm.
The fine-grained plaster with a particle size from 0.8 to 1.5 mm are suitable for interior decoration of premises, and the material with coarse fractions from 2 to 3.5 mm is used for plaster facades. Photo examples illustrate the obtained textured effect.
Granule size affects the depth of furrows in the finish and the flow rate per 1 m2 of plaster “bark beetle”.Thus, the compositions with larger fractions have a higher consumption than small patches. Plaster with granules of 2 mm and consumes 2.5 kg per 1 m2. At that time, as the flow of material from granules of 0.8 mm is about 1.8 kg per m2.
It is worth considering that the price per bag of plaster “bark beetle” with smaller fractions will be much higher. This is due to the complexity of the technology of filtering grains.
Distinctive features of plaster “bark beetle”
Advantages of this covering material are:
- the use of plaster “bark beetle”, photos of facades and spaces inside the building clearly displays, to interior and exterior decoration;

Mineral plaster is a mixture of cement and silica fume. It has high vapor permeability, fire resistance and frost resistance, making it an indispensable material for finishing the house outside. Decorative plaster “bark beetle,” the photo is clearly demonstrated, can be applied in several ways, able to create a complete and noble buildings. However, the material cannot be tinted to the finished solution, suggesting further work on the painting finished base.
Which plaster is the best? Especially popular compositions
Depending on the type of texture compound for plaster walls “bark beetle”, there are distinctive features of the technology application to the surface. Mineral blend requires minimal skill in drawing and applying polymer plaster is best left to professionals, since work with these compounds is much more complicated, which requires a certain experience.
Polymer decorative plaster on the walls, photos clearly confirm this, it looks much more aesthetic and attractive than a simple mineral. It is sold in the form of a solution completely suitable for the application. It is only necessary to color the material with a paint of the desired color.
Mineral plaster is manufactured as a dry powder in bags, which requires preparation of working solution, but the cost is much lower acrylic. Another indisputable advantage of the polymer mixture before the heavy mineral composition is relatively small consumption of plaster “bark beetle”, which is about 3.2 kg per m2. At that time, as mineral material will need about 4.5-5 kg per m2. They also do not require subsequent painting of the finished surface, which reduces the time of work.
Polymer plaster more elastic, which eliminates cracking when thermal expansion of the material and shrinkage. Mineral mixture is not soft enough, so it is better to apply after the building will shrink.
