Decorative plaster, which will be discussed in this article, is ideal for rooms with curved walls. It will not be necessary to level the surface under this plaster, which, undoubtedly, will be the best option for many.
Before proceeding with the application of decorative plaster and the formation of the pattern, the walls must be dedusted, and then primed.
For decorative wall decoration in the room, the author uses white finishing putty.
We also recommend reading the article: how to make decorative bricks from plaster mortar.
We knead the required amount of putty in a clean container (plastic bucket or basin).
There is no one universal proportion of free-flowing mixture and water, so follow the instructions on the package.
After the working solution has been prepared, you need to add ground marble (aka microcalcite) to it - ⅓ of the total weight of the solution.
If it is not possible to get ground marble, you can use quartz sand. But the fraction of sand should be very fine - less than 1 mm.
If there is neither one nor the other, then the author recommends using river sand. It needs to be sieved well and washed.
The author decided to make the first layer of decorative plaster beige. To do this, it is necessary to tint the putty with acrylic paint of a suitable shade.
The author applies the prepared solution to the wall surface using a washcloth.
Incredible facts from the pre-written history of mankind
The pre-written history of mankind, it would seem, should sink into oblivion.
But thanks to careful analysis and study, archaeologists managed to get to the bottom of incredible facts that today seem simply amazing.
About 3600 years ago, one of the pharaohs spent most of his life on horseback, which deforms the muscles of his thighs and pelvis. Horses at that time were only brought to Egypt and were very rare in wars. But Pharaoh Senebkai quickly appreciated all the advantages that these mounts could provide during the war. At that time, the mighty empire of Ancient Egypt began to disintegrate. During the invasion of the Hyksos, the northern part of the country was captured, after which only the territories around Abydos remained under the control of Senebkai, the self-proclaimed ruler of Upper and Lower Egypt. Due to the threat of the Hyksos as well as the Nubian invasion, the pharaoh spent most of his life in battles.
Around 1600 BC ... Senebkai went to battle against his enemies, which was his last. Judging by the wounds found on the mummy, Senebkai fought on horseback, which gave him a significant advantage. However, he was surrounded by several opponents who stabbed him in a series of blows to his knees, arms and lower back. When Pharaoh was knocked down from his horse, he received three strong blows to the head.
Senebkai's body has not been mummified for several weeks, indicating that he died far from Abydos. Pharaoh was buried in a modest tomb, which testifies to the poverty of his dynasty. Even his sarcophagus was stolen from the tomb of the previous ruler. Historians learned about the Senebkaya dynasty only in 2014, when his grave was excavated.
In 1984, workers digging peat near Manchester Airport discovered a man's foot in the soil. This is how the "Lindow Man" was discovered. Through extensive research, it has been established that man died about 2,000 years ago, that is, during Celtic Britain. He was under 30 years old. His hands were well-groomed, and the man was also quite well-fed, which suggests his noble birth. He had no old scars or injuries, that is, he was not a warrior. Historians believe that he was a druid - a priest of the ancient Celts.
On the day of his death, a man from Lindou with other druids played a game - who will get a burnt piece of barley cake. The loser was sacrificed (moreover, this sacrifice was voluntary). The so-called "triple sacrifice" (in honor of the three gods) went like this: first they broke the head of a man, then strangled him with a cord and cut his throat. And at the end, the corpse was drowned in a swamp, where it lay for the next two millennia.
In order to prevent diseases transmitted by airborne droplets, doctors recommend wearing face masks.
This rule is especially important for those who are constantly in crowded places: in shops, at train stations, in hospitals, in public transport (buses, trolleybuses, metro).
And although, of course, the bandage itself is not capable of 100% protection from viruses, its presence is still important.
Using even the simplest mask (purchased or made by hand), you can create an additional protective barrier and reduce the burden on local immunity.
In this article, we will share with you two ways to make a paper towel (the easiest option) and a cloth face mask. We also recommend that you read how to make a gauze bandage with your own hands.
For a mask to be truly effective and convenient to use, you need to responsibly choose the material for its manufacture.
For example, if we talk about face masks made from paper towels, then “raw materials” need to be bought of good quality. The material should be dense. It is important.
As for the cloth mask, there are also some points to consider. For example, it is necessary to use not the first fabric that comes to hand, but the one that can "breathe".
Also, the fabric should not be rough. Otherwise, you will feel discomfort when wearing such a mask. Also, it will not be able to tightly fit the skin.
