Venetian Plaster Colors
Vibrant and pure earth colors beckon the eye toward Real Venetian Plaster when it is tinted with authentic natural Italian colorants.
Colors of the Italian Renaissance
Yes, the same earth and oxide colorants that were used in the Italian Renaissance are infused into the imported Italian Plaster colors that we use in our projects.
For walls that come alive with color, Plaster Artistry™ features authentic, restoration quality earth and oxide colorants, the same colorants which were used by Renaissance artists. These authentic earth pigments, in their purest crystalline form, are unlike most pigments available on the market today.
The crystalline form of authentic earth pigments will catch the light and cause your walls to glow from within — a look that is unattainable by any paint product. And the range of hues available is breathtaking — imagine the colorful splendor of the Italian Renaissance!
Authentic earth colorants were the only ones considered by the Italian government for the restoration of the frescoes in Florence’s Cathedral Dome of Brunelleschi. This beautiful building has the largest dome in the world made entirely of bricks; an architectural and engineering marvel, and vitally important piece of Italy’s art history.
Vibrant Glowing Color
Natural earth and oxide pigments resist the naturally high pH that makes Real Venetian Plaster mold resistant. And their crystalline form catches the light and gives the finish a glow from within that cannot happen with synthetic tints. Think of the Grand Canyon and the amazing glowing colors it has from its natural earth and oxide pigments.
Even our colorants are authentic.
These natural colorants make the Venetian Plaster Colors that we use in our finishes the best. After all, in our Real Venetian Plaster, even the colors are real. So whether you choose color that is subtle or bold, your walls will come alive with beautiful, vibrant, glowing color.
Ciao a presto.
