Venetian marble plastering has become an extremely popular choice for a superior wall finish.
As highly skilled expert plasterers, specifically trained in the application of decorative plaster the range of finishes available is vast.
Walls can be transformed into stunning displays of decorative art using polished Italian plaster finishes.
Venetian marble plastering is especially useful on surfaces where marble panels could not be installed easily, and on surfaces that would be too expensive to have carved from real marble such as columns, corbels, fireplaces and curved walls. Venetian plaster is also a lighter option to marble panels and has many other advantages.
Polished plaster is a term for the finish of some plasters and for the description of new and updated forms of traditional Italian plaster finishes. The term covers a whole range of decorative plaster finishes—from the very highly polished Venetian plaster and Marmorino to the rugged look of textured polished plasters.
Types of finishes
When applied correctly, Venetian marble plastering can be used to create a highly polished, rock-hard, marble-like finish. Venetian plaster is especially useful on surfaces where marble panels could not be installed easily, and on surfaces that would be too expensive to have carved from real marble such as columns, corbels, and curved walls.
Venetian plaster can be tinted, or colored using natural or synthetic colorants. The ability to tint Venetian plaster is especially helpful when a specific colour of “marble” is desired, or when a colour that does not exist naturally is wanted.
