Impera Italia’s Advice™
It’s always a good idea to purchase 1KG of the selected plaster or 1L of the chosen paint, coloured, to be applied on site or on a board to check and approve the final colour. Please see the chosen product’s page to order the respective board or sample pot.
The word catalogue is derived from the ancient greek word katalogos, meaning ‘pick out’ or ‘enrol’.
