What is real Venetian Plaster?

In Italy, it is simply called “stucco”. It is so common there that every hardware store or paint shop stocks the lime plaster (stucco) and its specialized tools. Lime plaster is the real Venetian Plaster – synthetics and faux plasters are a poor imitation.

Italian Plaster training

We studied extensively in Italy and learned the art and craft of authentic Italian Plaster, mastering the secret techniques that are the hallmarks of high quality plaster finishes. It is not an easy art to master. There is a high barrier between making a sample board and expertly executing Venetian Plaster on the walls and ceilings of a room, foyer, or whole house.

Only authentic Italian ingredients make real Italian Plaster

Real Italian Plaster is made of aged Italian lime putty, crushed Italian marble, and often a few other “magic” ingredients, depending on the desired final look and feel. The look can be matte or glossy, smooth or textured. Real Italian Plaster is cool to the touch – just like real stone – due to the marble and limestone it’s made from. Real Venetian Plaster exudes an ambience that is unmatched by imitation or faux plaster.
