Correctly pick decorative stone.For finishing arches typically use narrow plates: they simply easier to attach to the inner surface of the rounded arches.
Prepare the surface (if it is too smooth, make incisions with a pick) and prime with it.Next, prepare the mortar.Composition of the solution depends on the type of decorative stone, however, as a rule, it includes lime, glue, Portland cement and sand.
When facing arches with decorative stone wall surrounding also trim this material.Attach the first stone at the junction of the arch and the surr
ounding wall (start from the bottom).All the tiles are put online under the levels.
second row, too, starts with the interface and the adjacent walls of the arch, but the first stone of this series is to advocate for the joint to the wall thickness of the tiles.Subsequent mount elements overlap.
Those finishing elements that are mounted near the rounded part of the arch, carefully cut along the arc, after attaching them to the wall adjacent to the future site of attachment.In addition, a pencil to mark the stone protruding from the inside of the curved arches and trim.
To accurately cut stone, walk around the building several times with a knife made of the mark, then using a pair of pliers to remove the excess.Any remaining irregularities treat sandpaper.
inner side of the arch is lined with decorative stone on the same technology as the outer corners (do not forget about the overlap in this case).
The next day do the grout using the special solution.Apply it with a spatula, but do it carefully, without strong pressure on the stone.
