Produce a mixture of the Natural fibre plaster and the Full-shade tinting color. Apply it very profoundly with a roll or a smoothing trowel. Appply approx. 1-2 m² first (consumption approx. 750-1000ml per m²).
Smooth the surface out with a spatula or a plastic trowel. Afterwards pat the trowel flat into the fresh material, always placing the pats close to each other, possibly slightly overlapping.
Gently smooth out the edges and bulges a little, until the desired structure is achieved.
The edges might stay sharp or be more smooth, according to your personal taste.
The edges and bulges, very visible when wet, will "fall" and be less striking after drying (24-48 hours).
Slightly smooth out the elevated spots with sanding paper (150 grit), make sure you do not even them out completely.
Prepare a mixture of the Full-shade tinting color and the Wallpaper paste. Apply it thinly by a roll or trowel (consumption approx. 100ml per m²). Do not apply more than approx. 1 m² first.
Swiftly take off the applied paint with a spatula or trowel; do it with criss-crossing movements. Remove the excessive material from the trowel.

The look can be achieved in various colors:
