What is Venetian Plaster?
As Venetian plaster suppliers, we must be knowledgeable and have experience with the products we offer. Here, we’ll share what you need to know about Venetian plaster.
Venetian plaster was used in the ancient societies of Egypt, Rome, Greece, China, Mesoamerica, and Japan. These cultures all built structures made of lime, which still stand today.
Lime offers a soft, natural, luminescent finish with a depth of colour not achievable in other surface treatments. These characteristics were prized by the ancient societies who used lime and Venetian plaster.
Practical & Durable
In addition to its beauty, Venetian plaster was also prized as a practical, durable surface treatment by our ancient ancestors. Limestone is a practical material that’s breathable and doesn’t put off VOCs. This material can be used in wet environments, where it works to naturally inhibit the growth of mould and mildew.
What’s more, Venetian plaster is easy to patch, and it can be used to fill in small cracks that may form. The material is 100% natural and is made without harmful substances or byproducts.
What’s Venetian Plaster Made Of?
As Venetian plaster suppliers, we must be familiar with all aspects of this amazing lime plaster. So, we’ll share some of our knowledge of what the plaster’s made of and more.
Venetian plaster begins with limestone that’s rich in calcium carbonate. Limestone is then made into slaked lime putty.
Venetian plaster is a sustainable, environmentally-friendly substance that can be used in our modern spaces. The plaster is durable, resistant, and ecological, all while creating a stunning aesthetic in any room or space.
The process of turning limestone into quicklime starts by “baking” the lime. It can take over a week for the limestone to be turned into quicklime. Over that time, the process requires a stable temperature, with the continuous addition of sawdust. In addition, lasers are used to purify the fumes released by this process before they’re released into the environment.
The next step is slaking the lime putty. This stage involves adding water to the quicklime. During this process, dense liquid is created that must be thoroughly filtered for any unbaked material. Any unbaked material could damage the quality of the final product.
After the straining process has finished, the purified quicklime is sent to large tanks, where the next stage in the slaking process takes place.
The next step in the slaking process is ageing the lime, which is done in a 500-ton pit. Here, the lime stays for about 6 months. During the ageing process, the chemical properties of the lime are altered to create the unique texture and appearance of slaked lime.
This step is crucial to developing authentic slake lime.
During the filtration process, the slaked lime is micro-filtered to ensure it has a creamy, smooth texture that’s free of impurities.
The final step in creating Venetian plaster is the pigmentation process. Here, the carbonate crystal dries and forms a hard invisible crust on the surface. This binds to the pigments, and the colour becomes a part of the Venetian plaster. It’s this step that makes lime plaster last with vibrant colours for many decades and centuries.

The 5-day course at Stucco & Stucco was amazing! Andy is a real talented and passionate guy, and that reflects in the course! I learnt so much during the 5 days from the practical side to branding, marketing and the business side! Can't thank Andy enough! Highly Recommended.
" 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
