What is polished plaster?
Venetian Polished Plaster is a decorative surface covering option, made out of slaked lime & crushed marble, hence why it’s sometimes referred to as marble plaster, in Italy it is also known as Stucco.
It is quite a traditional option for decoration on the continent and in other countries, due to the range of finishing options and the temperature retaining properties.
Sustainable: Being made from natural raw materials means that Venetian Plaster is eco-friendly & a sustainable choice, we also offer a range of paints that can be used to help clean the air in your internal environment.
Durable & waterproof: Certain plasters, but not all, can be made waterproof by the waxes or sealants that are applied at the end of the process. These also offer added durability for your decorative coating, naturally some are more durable than others, which our expert team can advise on.
Versatile: Your imagination is the main limitation when it comes to where these decorative finishes can be used, providing the substrate is solid and the correct application procedure is followed. We are able to advise more in depth during our consultation as to the limitations of a particular material or finish.
However you could repurpose a table, coat a ceiling, decorate a door, float a masterpiece out across the floor or design fabulous furniture, microcement in particular is a very on trend coating at the moment and goes over most surfaces. Link to Applications page
Limitless options: By taking a different approach to the application of products we are able to change how the finished surface turns out, a seemingly unlimited range of colour choices and the addition of other products means you can choose a very unique and special result that sings to your soul.
Texture in the end finish is particularly important to us, not only should the surface look stunning but also appeal to your touch, we aim to create a sensory experience second to none.
High gloss polished surfaces, right through to pitted, semi-smooth and even deeply textured stormy options are available.
