Question

cement veneer on a framed wall (2x4 + OSB)


i want to have an urban art mural, of graffiti if you will, on one of the narrower sides of my 11x9 shed. was thinking to first hang that wire mesh and then smear approximately a half inch layer of some kind of mortar mix to paint on it. i am sure the mix needs to be different than let's say for laying bricks or something, because of the application.

any idea how i should go about this ?

You need to isolate the wood from the masonary product.
Treat the wall like you were putting up stucco.

2 layers of building paper, lath nailed 6"OC vertically, 16" horizontally, all edges cased. You can then smear regular mortar mix (add fibers if available) on 1/2" thick. Next put on one more thin layer that has the desired texture, I would assume smooth and flat.

I don't see why not. It' essentially bare cement. It has a faux siding pattern on the front, but it's flat and a little coarse on the back.

Use a 4/1/1 sand/lime/cement mix for the base coat and a 5/1/1 mix for the top coat. Use plastering sand rather than building sand.
