Forté Base is a base coat material but it can also be used as a finish coat (in a two coat process) for those looking for a suede-like texture.


Coverage: Approximately 160 square feet per 50 lb. bag (per coat).


Plaster comes without color pigment - color is Snow Canyon (003) in our color palette.

Forté Base (50 lb.)

  • Forté plasters are an advanced plaster formula. These fortified plasters are pre-mixed with a new breathable binder. Our newest finishes result in a healthy, beautiful wall treatment with increased performance and added hardness. Forté plasters do not require the use of Up & EZ! binder.


    Forté Base is a base coat material which can be applied over a properly prepared substrate. Most surfaces require our general priming system which includes a specific list of approved primers to be mixed with American Clay's Primer Sand additive. Forté Base can also be used as a finish coat (in a two coat process) for those looking for a suede-like texture.


    Forté Base is the base coat for our Forté Finish and Forté White plasters.


    Surfaces with texture will require a thicker base coat, never more than 1/16 of an inch.


    Recommended application thickness for two coats: each coat is applied a bit thicker than 1 credit card thickness.
