Plastering & Preparation
To get the best results when decorating then take care to prepare the base surface properly.
Small cracks and holes need filling as imperfections are even more obvious after painting.
AURO paints are designed to work with these fillers and we advice against using other products as some may contain chemicals or conflict with the high quality of the AURO paints.
