Tintoretto has been developed to help you or your applicator re-create a finish that is similar to Venetian plaster, by offering a much easier, and more cost-effective way to achieve this beautiful velvety look at a fraction of the cost, whilst maintaining the sophistication that has come to be expected of Italian decorative finishes.
Tintoretto will create a matt feature wall with beautiful shades of colour embellished into the final effect, offering a stunning contrast that is sure to stand out.
To achieve the best application of Tintoretto, we recommend using a Metallic Effect trowel. Tintoretto’s richness and viscosity make the application a true joy! This also helps to create a beautiful texture on the wall that feels really special.
If you are planning to apply Tintoretto on a dusty, chalky, or highly porous area, you should use Atomo (To be applied before Tintoretto Primer) This will help to consolidate the surface!

HOW TO APPLY TINTORETTO
1- Check the wall is free from dust, and dirt and is as smooth as possible before starting. Correct any imperfections.
2- Make sure that Tintoretto primer has been applied beforehand and that it is dry. Mix paint well before applying as it might have settled during transport. Leave it to dry for 4 to 6 hours.
3- Apply the 1st coat of Tintoretto using the plastic trowel. Avoid using linear movements, the idea is to create a random pattern using varied motions. Give this coat adequate time to dry.
4- Begin with the 2nd coat using the same tool, continuing to repeat the varied hand movements. At this stage it is possible to be more deliberate with the pattern being created. The idea is to create intense, deep shades within this matt paint that simulate the beauty that Venetian plaster is known for.
Impera Italia’s Advice™
Tintoretto must be applied on two coats using irregular patterns. It is important to ensure that the first coat is smooth, without any trowel lines. The second coat, will define the final look, for this reason, we recommend making irregular movements in order to achieve the desired result.
