South Florida Venetian Plaster
Venetian Plaster is a type of decorative wall finish and ceiling finish that can be applied on interior and exterior surfaces. Made from marble and lime ground with pigments, Venetian Plaster makes any room into a showcase of art. The proper application is laborious as Venetian Plaster finishes involve three to four coats applied by hand using a trowel or spatula followed by a layer of protective wax. This is no ordinary paint job! By choosing Venetian Plaster for your wall finishes and ceiling finishes, you are adding class and sophistication to your home or office. There is an unlimited choice of color and texture, from slick and shining to raw and rough. It´s also very easy to clean, simply use a sponge. We use only real imported Venetian Plaster, not the synthetic products found at home improvement stores.
OVER 5000 YEARS IN THE MAKING The beautiful and most well-known traditional authentic lime product and finish, Stucco Veneziano had been used by Egyptians and further developed by the Romans. It wasn't until the Venetian's started to access the multi-layering process that this plaster mixture was used to achieve a natural sheen. What used to take 10 to 15 layers, followed by a time consuming polishing process using hot irons, can now be achieved using a steel blade or trowel in just 3 to 4 layers.
MOLD AND MILDEW RESISTANT The lime in the Venetian Plaster naturally inhibits the growth of mold or mildew no matter how wet or humid the environment, or lack of sunlight it gets.
