Puntinato is a decorative plaster with mineral binders that allows you to create various detailed, stone-like decorative effects in a variety of textures or a smooth ‘Marmorino’ look. This lime-based decorative plaster is enriched with marble grains of various colours, and these little “dots” (‘puntino’ in Italian) give any feature a natural, organic look.

With Puntinato you will chose one of the traditional Italian wall finishes that you can still see in palazzos and other high-end properties.

Puntinato A’ has added oxide red powder with gray, brown and oxide red/brown grit,  Puntinato B’ is pure white base with gray, oxide red/brown coloured marble grit, meaning that the latter’s putty base is of a lighter colour (almost pure white) than the former’s.

Compared to other decorative plasters with coloured grains, you will see that ‘Puntinato’ of CAP Arreghini provide a more detailed natural look.



Before using this plaster you will need to apply the primer UnifixOnce this is completed, you should protect it with Impera Wax. Make sure you are using the right tool, a Venetian plastering trowel.


Impera Italia’s Advice™

The best decorative results employing ‘Puntinato’ can be achieved with light, off-white colours; the pigments of dark colours suppress the beauty of the dots. This Venetian plaster finish combines simplicity with detailed look.



Puntinato means ‘stippled’ and is actually one of the affects that makes many stones and marbles look polychromatic (multi-coloured).
