Originally created by the Venetians, Venetian Plaster is a mix of lime plaster and marble dust. Venetian Plaster is like no other finish. It can resemble stone, as it adds dimension using layers of trolled on material. It has a great translucency that paint can’t match.There are many Venetian Plasters available today. Depending on the material and the application different effects can be created. Most have a protective top coat or wax in which metallics can be added to if desired. Textured Plaster is another way to get a tactile feel to the wall. It can be painted, glazed or antiqued. It is great to use when you’re looking for that Old World look.
