Plastic spatula upholstery tool
Plastic spatula upholstery tool is a finishing hand tool. Let’s recap!
You have reach the stage where the fabric stretch correctly on the wall. Your material is secure in the track and, the excess is trim down around the wall or panel.
Now, the molding is exposed. In some cases, moldings have delicate paint or other type of softer finishes. A metal tool could leave some markings, so, the purpose of a plastic spatula is not to damage these surfaces.
Please don’t use it to fit the fabric at the beginning because it is not strong enough. The plastic will brake.
There is another place where a plastic spatula could become handy. For example against a mat ceiling. Or if you don’t have any molding but the track is close to a built-in cabinet.
A clean fabric finish
Not long ago, we installed fabric on a single wall. The wall had a few niches sticky out like a box. So, the pieces of tracks went around and against the box. The surface was paint white. I made a video about the tucking of the fabric.
To sump up, when we are working with these types of surroundings, we have a gentile plastic spatula like the one describe above.
Therefore, it is only used at the end of an installation, when it is nearly done. So after a metal spatula has secured the fabric in the track.
