Savannah is an ultra fine acrylic based finish for interior or exterior use. It features dirt pickup resistant (DPR) for durability and can achieve a variety of looks depending upon finishing techniques. Savannah is highly breathable, mildew resistant and can also be top coated to provide additional surface protection. Savannah can be custom tinted to a wide selection of standard and custom colors, and will provide a longer lasting and more uniform look to the surface.
Ready to Use
Ultra thin applications (two thin coats)
Standard and custom colors
Can be accented with Vintique, Clearshield, Roller-flex or Metallic Cote
Dry Time: 24 hrs at room temperature, working and drying time will vary with temperature and humidity
Job Conditions – Air and surface temperatures must be 4°C (40°F) or higher and must remain so for a minimum of 24 hours. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight during application. Protect the finish from rain and temperatures less than 40°F (5° C) for a minimum of 24 hours.
Surface Preparation – Interior Drywall: smooth, flat dust-free and ready for paint. Clean the surface in preparation for Savannah. Prime wall with Primecoat Primer and allow to dry. Exterior: Master Wall® base coat is required as a leveling coat for all surfaces and shall be smooth and free of any mesh pattern. Scrape or sand base coat so the surface is smooth, level and free of imperfections. Remove any dust caused by the sanding.
Mixing – Open pail of Savannah and mix approximately one minute with a fixed wheel type paddle or equivalent mixing blade attached to a 1/2” (13 mm) heavy duty drill at 400-500 rpm. Do not add water.
Application – Using a Wind-Lock T-VPF2008, T-VPF2411 or T-VPF2812 Stainless Steel Venetian Plaster Trowel apply a very tight, thin coat of Savannah to the surface free of trowel marks a maximum of 1/16” (1.6 mm) thick. After the first coat has flash dried (5-10 minutes), double back and apply another tight coat. Allow to dry for a minimum of 8 hours and apply another tight, thin coat of Savannah and trowel smooth.
Note: Application problems occur when Savannah is applied too thick. Only paper thin applications are necessary.
Surface may be spray coated after 24 hours with Master Wall® Metallic Cote, Vintique Clearshield or Roller-flex if desired. Follow individual data sheet instructions for products selected.
Cautions and Limitations Smaller surface areas achieve a more consistent appearance. Areas larger than 5’ x 5’ (1.5 x 1.5m) in size can have characteristic mottling. Savannah is not intended for deep depressions or irregular surfaces. Slope all exterior surfaces 1:2 minimum to shed water. Apply in paper thin applications, shrinkage, cracking or blistering can occur over 1/16” (1.6 mm) thick. Savannah is designed to be applied over a properly installed interior drywall. Not for use over any finishes or primers other than Primecoat. Application in direct sunlight may affect aesthetics if the Savannah dries too quickly. Avoid direct sunlight. Use of Clearshield sealer is recommended in high moisture or traffic areas. When cleaning do not use harsh or abrasive cleaners. Wash gently using a soap and water solution followed by a warm water rinse.
Clean Up Tools and equipment can be cleaned with soapy water while the Savannah is still wet.

Job Conditions – Air and surface temperatures must be 4 °C (40 °F) or higher and must remain so for a minimum of 24 hours. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight during application.
Surface Preparation – The existing Master Wall® base coat shall be smooth and free of any mesh pattern. A two-pass or double base coat method may need to be used. Once dry use a rasp or preferably an auto body longboard such as Dura Block with 80-grit sandpaper. Rasp in a cross-hatch pattern to level the wall surface and eliminate any imperfections. The entire surface should be level and sanded. Clean the surface in preparation for Savannah.
Mixing – Open pail of Savannah and mix approximately one minute with a fixed wheel type paddle or equivalent mixing blade attached to a 1/2″ (13 mm) heavy duty drill at 400-500 rpm. Small additions of water, up to 120 ml (4 oz.) per pail, may be added for workability as needed.
Application – Using a stainless steel trowel, apply a tight, thin coat of Savannah to the base coat free of trowel marks. Allow the Savannah to take up for 15 – 30 minutes and then sand with the longboard and 120-grit sandpaper in a cross-hatch pattern. Clean the surface to remove any dust.
Apply a paper-thin second coat of Savannah and allow it to set up for 15-30 minutes. Sand again with the longboard and either 120 or 220-grit sandpaper in a cross-hatch pattern. Clean the surface to remove any sanding dust and allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours before priming.
Completely remove all sanding dust prior to application of color-coordinated Primecoat (optional) or finish. Any approved Master Wall® coating or finish may be applied after the Primecoat has fully dried. Apply the coating or finish in accordance with published instructions for the specified product. When attempting to replicate smooth glossy panels, follow closely the spray application instructions for Primecoat and Metallic Cote outlined in the Metallic Cote data sheet. Do not roller apply Primecoat or Metallic Cote over Savannah as this can result in visible roller and lap marks in the final finished surface.
