This special paint comes in gold, silver and red varieties, all with great intensity; it’s a vibrant metallic finish for features or effects on top of Italian decorative plasters.
Impera Italia’s Advice™
This paint can even be applied on one or two coats with various tools. Furthermore, a thicker coating creates a plaster-like, forceful appearance or two thin coats will bring to life an airy, graceful decorative finish. The best look can be achieved by metal Venetian plastering trowel, which can be considered a specialists’ application, but even sponge and roller can create a stunning effect.
Velvet is actually a two-warp fabric, meaning that it’s created by waving together two different thicknesses of the same material. True silk velvet is still very costly and hard to make.
