Venetian Plaster || Modified Veneziano
All the luxuriant beauty of the true Venetian polished plaster but modified with the benefit that it may be pigmented to nearly100% of black.
General - Identical in nearly all respects to the standard Grassello product A filtered slaked lime and marble flour plaster modified with more than 4% Acrylic Resin allowing the mixture to be fully pigmented if desired. Nearly all slaked lime Italian plaster imported to the USA is modified in this way. Due to it's high lime content, this plaster is still offers natural mold and mildew resistance.
Texture - As with standard Grassello (Venetian plaster) it produces a smooth, regal, polished plaster finish. Cool like stone to the touch with a warm effect.
Colour and Technique - Remarkably, only a small percentage of resin added to the slaked lime allows much deeper coloring-even black. Application technique is the same as with unmodified lime and with like results-rich and vibrant to quietly serene depending on the hand of the applicator.
Architectural Treatments - Suitable over all standard substrate, however due to it's fine surface it is suitable for luxurious residential and commercial interiors. It accentuates and combines well with many wood types, metal patinas, glass and stone. Not suitable for historical restoration and the percentage of resin varies by manufacturer.
