K Rend Query

New Member
Hi!

New to the forum and looking for a bit of advice. Just had a planter rendered in KRend. Looked ok yesterday but in good light today can see some faults.

I have no knowledge of rendering so wanted to check if it was right that the white plastic beading was visible on the edges and that the mesh was also showing through in some areas. Have attached some photos to give an idea.

Seems to me that it needs another coat. Wanted to get some advice before I raise it with the chap who did it!

Any insight would be very gratefully received.

Thank you! AE3624CA-A4BD-4527-85BF-0A532D6074F9.jpeg F8FC5E50-9989-4766-B575-D71A968BE0C5.jpeg 2774534F-8126-4494-A3B6-C9E0E11A8272.jpeg 789ABDAD-7D91-451E-839A-9C0A9630617A.jpeg 2774534F-8126-4494-A3B6-C9E0E11A8272.jpeg 789ABDAD-7D91-451E-839A-9C0A9630617A.jpeg

No, mesh shouldn’t be seen, beading is questionably passable but it’s normal to see the white along the bead

Looks rough tbh. Seems shy an not built out enough at the beads.. coats weren’t build over the corner an scratch back flush.. looks under built. Meeting points on beads must be spot also.

Easy to come on here and Criticize work. God knows what s**t he had to work over. And for looking rough it doesn't. Looks how it should. Apart for a small bit of bead that could have broken while scratching back. Can cut the mesh bits off with a knife.

What was the propane heater for? Looks to me like it was cutback too wet, don't worry too much yet, it will be green soon.

Rendering a horizontal area in any textured render will end up dirty in no time.
Not the worse job I’ve seen in any case, as said.

It’s a shabby job! Any proper roughcaster/renderer would know. Cutting beads short/ the closeups on the scratch render itself shows it’s been shy on the coats an the scratch back wasn’t dry enough, basic observation. Is it the worst job.. prob not.. doesn’t mean you have to accept poor workmanship.
