Impera Italia’s Advice™
Due to it’s slower drying time Stucco Veneziano is highly suitable for multi-colour polished Venetian plaster finishes and when detailed effects are required (meaning it’s a great product for artists).
‘Stucco Veneziano’ means Venetian plaster and is a general term that describes plasters with fine marble dust.
A: This specific Stucco from San Marco shouldn’t get in contact with water. For suitable products see other polished plasters, for more information please contact our sales team.
Q: Can you put Stucco Veneziano over tiles?
A: Not directly! Either remove the tiles or a flexible coating with mesh should be applied on top, followed by a stronger key coat of a large-grit decorative plaster (like Marmorino Fino from CAP Arreghini), before any smooth polished Venetian plaster application can start.
Q: Can this product be applied on floors?
A: No, Stucco Veneziano can’t be applied on floors.
Q: How durable is this finish? Is Stucco Veneziano scratch proof?
A: This plaster is much harder and altogether, more durable than most other polished plasters on the market, but it is not scratch proof without additional protection. If you are looking for enhanced durability, please contact our sales team.
Q: How accurate are your colours?
A: As we employ industrial colouring methods, and because of the experience of our technicians our standard colour deviation for Stucco Veneziano is nominal, meaning there is very little to no visible difference between batches and coloured products 99% of the time. To ensure the accuracy of the final colour, please purchase a tester pot and consult with your specialist as application methods and protectors can significantly affect the colour and the final look!
Q: How resistant are the colours?
A: Due to the fact that the pigments are inserted into the products, they have exceptional colour resistance. Protective coating like waxes enhance this property.
Q: Do I really need a primer? Is PVA suitable as a primer?
A: PVA and other glues were not devised for coatings of these kinds and generally can not ensure proper bonding and durability. Finishes applied without the proper primers might deteriorate very quickly. The primers supplied by us ensure resistance, bonding and durability; finishes applied with the proper system can last dozens of years!
Q: What do we have to do if one day we want to re-do the wall?
A: This poses no problem, Stucco Veneziano should only be lightly sanded and primed. Texture should be covered with fillers or gypsum plaster.
Q: Do I need a specialist to apply these finishes?
A: Please see the application difficulty. It’s highly advisable to contact a specialist or get training if the application difficulty is greater than 3. For training and specialists in your area please contact our sales team.
Q: What’s the shelf life of Stucco Veneziano?
A: This product can be used for 2 years if it’s kept shielded from direct sunlight and is stored between 5 and 30 degrees Celsius.
