- The lissage - or finition lissée - gives a smoothed surface, optically as to the touch, sometimes even glittering
- The lissage is done after a fine compacting (with feather edge rule) or, better, after a coupage.
- It's done dry with or without a light spraying of clean water, or after feutrage with sponge board.
- According the technic, the lissage is more or less smooth and more or less cloudy : a real scale test is thus to be made.
- The feutrage creating a
large amount of "cream" allow to fill every holes or uneveness of the
surface but imply a second smoothing : after 30/60 mn, lightly spary
the surface with water and smoothe again, keeping in mind to remove the
extra-crem as one goes along.
- Stainless smoother, beveled if possible, quite rigid for
traditionnal smoothing (softer smoothers are used for humpy smoothing
- Sponge board
- Clean polishing cloth
