What is Polished Plaster?
Polished plaster, also called Venetian plaster Leeds, is a decorative finish that can be applied to any surface, including walls and ceilings. The material creates a creates a smooth, glossy, and marble-like appearance.
There are several different decorative plasters that fall under the term “polished plaster.” Each one is beautiful and unique. The plasters differ in texture from highly smooth and polished to pitted matt. So, no matter what type of finish you’d prefer, polished plaster has an option that will work for you.
What are the Benefits of Polished Plaster?
Along with a wide range of textures and colours, polished plaster has several benefits to offer, including the following.
1. Low Volatile Organic Compounds
Polished plaster is made with all-natural ingredients, unlike other treatments such as paint or traditional plaster. As a result, it’s low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds), so it doesn’t cause health issues.
Traditional plaster and paint contain harmful VOCs that can cause respiratory issues, strong smells, and more. Symptoms of VOC exposure can include breathing issues, lung irritation, headaches, dizziness, and vision problems.
On the other hand, polished plaster doesn’t give off harmful volatile organic compounds. In addition, the plaster can be sealed with beeswax, a natural substance made by bees. The wax gives the plaster a beautiful sheen and protection.
2. Breathable Surface
Polished plaster also offers a breathable surface that allows moisture to evaporate. The plaster doesn’t keep water trapped in the substrate. Moisture can escape easily. This is one of the reasons polished plaster is popular in bathrooms and other wet rooms.
3. Eco-Friendly & Non-Toxic
Paint and traditional plaster are made with toxic chemicals that can be harmful. On the other hand, polished plaster is made with all-natural, eco-friendly materials.
Polished plaster is also a durable material that is not prone to cracking. It’s one of the most durable natural materials used in homes and businesses today. When cared for correctly, polished plaster can last for decades.
It’s also available in a wide range of colours and textures, making polished plaster a versatile plaster that offers many benefits.
Polished plaster is also waterproof. The durable, smooth surface is also sealed with a protective wax coating. The coating creates a waterproof seal that needs to be reapplied once in a while. The process of applying wax is easy, and your polished plaster surface will remain waterproof and beautiful for years to come.
6. Prevents Mould & Mildew
Another great benefit of polished plaster is that it also prevents the growth of mould and mildew. Not only is it waterproof, but polished plaster is alkaline, which keeps mould, mildew, and bacteria from growing.
7. Distinct, Smooth Surface
Polished plaster also offers a unique and distinctive finish to surfaces, such as walls and ceilings. These surfaces are low maintenance and easy to care for. Just wipe with a damp cloth, and you’re done!
Is Polished Plaster Expensive?
People have heard that polished plaster Leeds is expensive. But is that true? The cost depends on the size and type of surface, the chosen colour, and the application or installation.
Before polished plaster can be applied, it’s necessary that the walls have been primed and sanded. The area around it must also be covered and protected before installation. Installation is done by hand with a trowel. Once applied, it’s necessary to wait for the plaster to dry. Then another layer is added. Once the application process is finished, polished plaster must be polished to create that beautiful, lustrous sheen we love.
When you pay for the application or installation of polished plaster, you’re paying for professional skills, knowledge, and experience. However, the plaster is a significant investment, as it lasts for decades when installed correctly. As long as you’re happy with the polished plaster, it’s not necessary to redo the surface in any way. It’s only necessary to reapply the protective wax seal from time to time to keep your polished plaster surfaces stunning for years to come.

" I can’t thank them enough..."
Andy and Kevin came to my new build to work on an entrance hall double height wall for me. I can honestly say that when they had finished I was so happy with the result it made me cry. They are truly artists and dedicated to producing unique pieces of artwork that will last and be loved for many many years. I can’t thank them enough. Amazing.
"An excellent service..."
After visiting Andy at his showroom I can see why his training courses have become very popular in Yorkshire. I was looking at an alternative finish for a piece of furniture we had. With different finishes and colours Andy made various samples so we could see first hand. An excellent service and an even better finished product which now has pride of place in our room. Thanks.
"Can't speak highly enough..."
Fantastic product , service and workmanship . A classy outfit from start to finish ! Andy really does know his stuff and the unique finishes he does will wow anyone from Architects to hotel or home owners. We had a feature wall done in our house and a fire place too and they add the wow factor without a doubt . Can't speak highly enough
The choices and colours I could pick from were endless, and the only problem I had was deciding which i liked best. I Now have a brilliant feature in my living room that all my friends and family are jealous of. I recommend Stucco & Stucco 100% and it was a pleasure dealing with them from start to finish
