Marble Finish Course Overview

During the Marble Finish course in our London training centre, you will learn how to apply Venetian plasters or polished plasters to create a genuine, marble-like and veined look. We will show you how to use the best marble plaster for this purpose, our Luciano, to decorate walls and ceilings, combining a vast range of colours.

The Marble finish course is led by our Master applicator trained in Italy, with many years and thousands of square meters of experience, who will demonstrate the techniques and will make sure that you can do them yourself. We recommend this training for you if you are already familiar with the basic applications and methods.

There will be a brief explanation of the surface preparation, to ensure you have the right look and can achieve a durable finish. We will also show you the best method to protect these fantastic finishes!


Additional Course Perks

The Marble Plastering course comes with a complimentary lunch each day at a local Italian restaurant that serves homemade Italian and English dishes. As part of this course, you’re also eligible for a 15% discount on all materials purchased on the day (except tools, 5 % discount), including our Venetian plaster starter pack, and Venetian Plastering Tool Kit


Who Should Attend Our Marble Finish Course

We can recommend this course to you if you are already an experienced Venetian plasterer or decorative artist. You would need to have the right trowel skills and an eye for detail if you’d like to imitate real marble with polished plasters. Don’t worry, we will build on your knowledge and make sure you get to a stage where you can confidently do these finishes yourself!


What should you bring?
