Whether you are looking for a durable eco- friendly finish for your walls, a subtle timeless classic or a WOW wall or ceiling finish, Venetian Plaster may be the right choice for you. Although most applicators of Venetian Plaster are “faux finishers” by trade, Venetian Plaster is anything BUT a faux finish. As a matter of fact , according to Stucco Italiano Inc., “It’s the most authentic veneer wall finish you can have. When natural, lime-based venetian plaster is applied it will eventually return to it’s original state, which is lime and marble, AKA stone.”
It’s origins date back to ancient Rome. Venetian Plaster is an Old World technique that starts with limestone rocks from rivers or quarries. By the use of heat, water and time, the limestone is turned into an amazing “lime putty”. Mixed with such colorants as ground marble dust, and applied via steel trowels with refined techniques, Venetian Plaster turns an ordinary wall or ceiling into a masterpiece.
The possible looks and finishes for Venetian plaster are limitless!
Venetian plaster can be brought up to a natural high sheen by compressing the material as it dries. The more compression, the higher the sheen. However, natural lime plasters can also be finished to a rustic matte or satin sheen, depending on which material is used and how it is applied. The skill of the applicator can escalate a Venetian Plaster Finish from ordinary to TIMELESS.
