Venetian Plaster

 

Other Stucco Materials

This polished plaster finish is smooth with a variable degree of lustre depending on how much it has been burnished. Carrara venetian plaster is a very smooth and satiny with pleasant light and shade effects owing to its visible workmanship, which gives it a sense of depth. Carrara Marmorino is a decorative plaster that is suitable for both interior and exterior surfaces.

 

 

Unlike marble it has a single, soft colour with subtle shadings. It is a natural material made of lime and ground marble.

 

Its principal characteristics are hardness and durability even in humid environments such as the Venetian lagoon. Venetian plaster is especially appreciated for its aesthetic effects; its unique appearance is especially enhanced under good lighting. It is used in sophisticated environments, such as reception areas, offices, and villas. It is also suitable for use in bathrooms, where it is used as an alternative to marble and ceramic.

 

Marmorino polished plaster is one of the finest plasters common in Venice during its splendour years. It has a very smooth surface like that of marble from which it derives its name: “marmo” means marble in Italian language.
