So what is Venetian Plaster? Also known as “Polished Plaster it’s a wall and ceiling finish of plaster mixed with marble dust which is burnished to create a smooth surface with the illusion of depth and texture. It can make any room look luxurious and classy and works well in both commercial and domestic properties.
With its matte finish, rough and stone-like to the touch it can be used to create a highly polished, rock-hard, marble-like finish without the high price of marble.
It’s versatile and can be tinted, or coloured using natural or synthetic colorants so you can achieve that unique or specific marble colour that you just can’t find anywhere.
Most people think Authentic Venetian Plaster is a faux finish, but it isn’t. It’s actually the most authentic veneer wall finish you could have.
Don’t be fooled by synthetic products labelled “Venetian Plaster,” They really aren’t. While these synthetic Venetian Plasters made by paint manufacturers may look very similar in appearance to the real thing just be aware that in time they will fade and become “tired”, just like painted walls.
