Polished Plasters So solid
Venetian plaster is a wall and ceiling finish applied with a spatula or trowel in thin, multiple layers, which are then burnished to create a smooth surface with the illusion of depth and texture. Venetian plaster techniques include marmorino, scagliola, and sgraffito. When left un-burnished,Venetian plaster has a matte finish that is rough and stone-like to the touch.When applied correctly, Venetian plaster can be used to create a highly polished, rock-hard, marble-like finish.
Venetian plaster can be tinted, or colored using natural or synthetic colorants. The ability to tint Venetian plaster is especially helpful when a specific color of “marble” is desired, or when a colour that does not exist naturally is wanted.
