Venetian Marble Plastering
Venetian Marble Plastering Services
The ancient art of Venetian Marble Plastering is re-emerging as a magnificent form of surface decoration. It combines ancient skills with modern materials to create an extraordinary range of intriguing and lustrous wall finishes.
Walls are plastered and trowel polished to a high sheen in a spectular marble finish using marmorino veneziano plaster. Marmorino is a natural lime based plaster with ground marble. This, when plastered, gives the impression of the overall object being completely made of marble. Cool as stone to the touch with a satiny look and feel, marmorino gives your walls and floors an understated elegance.
Wall marmorino is recommended in mainly dry areas however it is splash resistant when sealed with water proffer and a natural bees wax. Water proffer is recommended around sinks and anywhere there might be splatters or droplets. Floor marmorino is harder wearing, much thicker and waterproof material. This can also be used on walls such as shower areas, wet rooms etc.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to interior and exterior use of Venetian Marble Plaster and it has a full range of colours and decorative effects/textures. It turns an ordinary wall, floor or ceiling into a masterpiece.
While this distinctive finish may require a higher initial capital outlay than some other forms of surface decoration, it is very cost effective on a whole life basis. Each completed finish is a unique artwork providing a permanent and valuable asset to the owner of the building. Contrast this to the transient nature of conventional finishes which require repeated redecoration or renewal over the same period and the appeal of Venetian Marble Plaster is evident.
