“Venetian plaster” is a broad term to describe a plaster that is primarily made of limestone and marble dust mixed in water. It’s been around for thousands of years; it was widely use and became popular during the Italian Renaissance period. Throughout the years to current time the components in the Italian plaster have changed with new technology and acrylic chemicals, but the main components that make this decorative plaster unique are still part of the formula.

For the most part Venetian plaster comes in 3 different forms of plaster: Venetian plaster which has a putty consistency. Marmorino which has the body of traditional sand-plaster. And lime-washed plaster which has the consistency of thick paint.

  • Venetian plaster or polished plaster is a combination of marble and lime powdered plaster. It renders a smooth to minimal texture finish and can be polished to a medium to a high polish marble look.
