Price Match Guarantee

Cadoro is a trowelled iridescent metallic effect with soft, silky appearance that you can apply as an effect on top of decorative plasters or as a metallic finish in itself. This special Italian finish comes in many different base colours to provide you with an incomparable colour range. The thickness and body of this product ensures an outstanding workability.

The ‘Velvet’ variery comes in lighter colours only, but has added small sparkles.



If you are planning to apply Cadoro on a dusty, chalky or high porous area, you should use Atomo (To be applied before the Universal Primer) This will help to consolidate the surface!

To apply Cadoro on a wall or ceiling you will need to use Universal primer as a base. You are not required to use a wax for a metallic finish.

Although there are many ways of applying Cadoro, it is highly recommended to use a Venetian plastering trowel for best results.



Impera Italia’s Advice™

‘Cadoro’ can significantly change its appearance based on the application method, namely the movement of the trowel; wide and small movements will each create their own distinctive pattern and beauty. If you are looking for a really smooth, seamless finish (and to make the application easier) we advise you to apply a ‘Rasature’ plaster base coat.



Ca’ d’Oro (meaning Golden House) is a famous palace in Venice, Italy.
