Plaster is making a comeback with improved plastering techniques and plaster veneers. These wall treatments are affordable and add a touch of elegance to any room.
At Stucco & Stucco, our Venetian plaster walls are thicker and more durable than drywall. Not only that, but it also offers structural superiority, along with a flatter, smoother surface.
What is Venetian Plaster?
Venetian plaster has been used since ancient times. Also called marble plaster, this plaster is an Italian polished plaster that’s made with lime putty and marble dust. The mixture creates a polished wall or ceiling that looks like it’s made from marble. The effect can be both decorative and luminescent.
In addition, Venetian plaster can be enhanced with acrylic resins to give the surface the look of a hard rock, textured, smooth marble-like finish with a glossy sheen.
Venetian plaster has been used for centuries; while it was used for construction, today, the kind of plaster used to create a unique, beautiful interior. The style may be anything from old-world traditional to contemporary, and Venetian plaster blends in elegantly.
What is Venetian Plaster Made of?
Our traditional Venetian plaster is made of lime putty, water, and marble dust, which creates lime plaster. Once applied to the walls, the lime plaster creates a polished finish on walls and ceilings. The marble dust causes the Venetian plaster to develop a marble-like appearance.
Once the plaster has been applied, waxes and oils are used to finish the plaster surface. Each finish adds a different look or texture to the Venetian plaster. For instance, waxes can be used to create a smooth, shiny surface. Oils applied to Venetian plaster bring out the colours of the plaster, making it possible to see the various patterns and colours in the plaster.
What are the Benefits of Venetian Plaster?
Venetian plaster offers several benefits in addition to a beautiful finish to walls and ceilings!
Venetian plaster is very versatile and can be used in many areas of your home. Inside the home, lime plaster is used to create stunning walls and ceilings with a marble-like appearance and unique textures.
Lime plaster has been in use since Roman times when it was extremely popular. Today, Venetian plaster continues to be a durable, strong finish.
3. Regulates Humidity
Venetian Plaster Liverpool looks like rock, with the same hardness as true stone. However, many are amazed to learn that Venetian plaster breathes. It has the ability to allow moisture to escape from the substrate (underlying wall), dispersing heat and humidity. Your home will feel more comfortable, even on hot, humid days.
4. The Cost of Venetian Plaster & Installation
It is true that Venetian plaster can be more expensive than other wall treatments. However, it’s necessary to consider the longevity of the plaster. Its durability makes maintenance and repairs less costly, and it’s a sustainable alternative to paint and other treatments.
So, it’s necessary to consider all the many benefits of Venetian plaster as you also consider the cost of its installation. Over time, lime plaster is a better investment that pays for itself.
5. Environmentally Friendly
If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly interior wall treatment, you can’t get much better than Venetian plaster. The plaster is made of natural materials, making this a sustainable design element.
In addition, Venetian plaster has some insulating factors. For instance, lime plaster acts to hold in the heat, making it more economical to heat your home. In the summer, the plaster also works to keep surfaces cool, so you can reduce the amount of air conditioning needed to keep your home comfortable.
6. Mould & Mildew Protection
Venetian plaster also offers protection against mould and mildew. The plaster itself breathes, but it’s also more alkaline, with a high pH level, making the wall treatment a natural fungicide. You won’t have to worry about distressing mould or mildew stains, or growth with lime plaster.
7. Low Maintenance
In addition to keeping mould and mildew at bay, Venetian plaster is also easy to maintain. All that’s necessary to clean surfaces is to wipe them with a damp cloth.
A wax finish is also beneficial to keep dirt from sticking to a surface. You’ll have much less work and cleaning to do if you choose Venetian plaster.

" 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
