Venetian Polished Plasters
Traditional Lime based stucco, also known as Venetian Polished Plaster, is a luxurious decorative coating that can be used within your home or business on walls.
Venetian Plaster gives a high shine finish, reminiscent of marble in appearance, which is partly due to the incorporation of crushed marble particulate within the product.
The high shine finish of Venetian Plaster is one of the most laborious and time-intensive offerings we have, but we feel that the effort is worth it when you’re left with polished marble artwork on your walls.
Characteristics: Smooth, shiny & with a distinct patterning, this product will bring the appearance of marble onto your surfaces.
Each installation will come with its own distinct patterning, which will be unique to your installation.
Giving a dramatic focal point for your space, we love the bold colours here, but for those of you who prefer something more subtle, we have options for you too.
Details: Only suitable for installation on walls, it is a more delicate coating than some of our other products.
