Venetian

With Venetian, a high-gloss, lime-based, Venetian polished plaster you can create mirror-like walls and ceilings of great depth and clarity. As Venetian is a porous, eco-friendly, natural material and naturally regulates humidity (it allows the walls to breathe), you can use it to decorate eco-friendly and passive house (passivhaus) projects, restorations and renovations of old or listed buildings.

Venetian is very ‘juicy’, which means you can spread it and create glossy surfaces easier than with most other lime-based polished plasters! With this Venetian plaster you’ll get a great balance between look and workability and an astounding value for the price.

To create a metallic Venetian plaster look you can apply some of our Patina waxes with a polishing cloth on top of a dry finish of Venetian.

 

How to apply Venetian

If you apply Venetian as a finish on it’s own, on 2 or more coats, you need to use Universal primer as a base. Once the Venetian plaster has been applied protect it with Wax D’arte.  The right specialist tool to apply this plaster is a Venetian plastering trowel

Alternatively, you can use Grassello Naturale on larger surfaces as a more cost-effective first coat and apply Venetian as the finish.

 

Impera Italia’s Advice™

Try to apply Venetian on its own and compare it on top of dry or wet Grassello Naturale to better understand the differences between different techniques and find the best method and look for you!

 

Trivia

Venetian plaster has many trade names, like Venetian, Polished plaster, Stucco Veneziano, Stucco Lucido, Venetian stucco, Lucidato, Grassello di Calce, Classico, Luciano, but all of them represent one product, a fine putty, enriched with marble dust able to achieve a glossy finish.
