FAQs About Fresco Harmony
About Fresco Harmony
Fresco Harmony is a colored joint compound system. It is a color additive in a bottle that mixes with one box (3 7 ½ gal) of all purpose joint compound to create perfect color consistency. It costs considerably less than plaster and other specialty surface treatment products and is twice as efficient. When compared to paint and other common surface applications, it is just as versatile and competitive in price and ease of use.
We are currently introducing our Signature Color Series, which is a collection of 40 sophisticated colors.

Applying Fresco Harmony
For most surfaces such as painted walls, wood paneling, or even wall paper it is not necessary to prep the surface first. For substrates such as brick, cinder block, and other pourous / rigid surfaces, we do recommend applying a preliminary coat of 90 min quickset joint compound prior to Fresco Harmony 3 coat process.
Yes you can, but we have a feeling you won’t want to! In all seriousness though, the surface can be painted over if you decide you want to in the future.
This depends on your experience level and your familiarity with spreadable mediums. If you’ve worked with a Hawk and Trowel (drywall, plaster, stucco, brick, etc) you will pick it up very quick. If not, the advantage to the medium is that it’s efficient and will allow you time to learn. So no matter your skill level, you can obtain beautify Fresco Harmony walls and surfaces.
For every single Color Pack, you will need one (1) box of 3.5 gal. joint compound and approximately one (1) quart of an acrylic top coat.
The tools you will need are a high power drill, mixer, 6” mud knife, Hawk, Trowel, bucket, acrylic sealer, and masking supplies. All of these common tools and supplies can be found at your local hardware store or home improvement center.
For joint compound, we recommend Sheetrock brand. For the top coat, we recommend either Modern Masters Top Coat or Behr Venetian Top Coat.
There are three layers to applying Fresco Harmony; the base coat, 2nd coat, and top coat. (For surfaces such as brick, cinder block, or stone, it is recommended to apply a preliminary coat of quickset.) Feel free to ask us any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dry time may vary depending on humidity and temperature. The colder or more humid a room, the longer each coat will take to dry. For best results, we always recommend giving each coat 24 hours to dry. Smaller projects may be able to use a fan to help dry quicker. It just really depends. Bottom line, make sure each coat dries completely before applying the next.
