What is Venetian Plaster?

Venetian plaster is an Italian (polished) plaster made from lime putty and marble dust. The resulting finish is highly polished; the room can look as if it’s made of marble. Venetian plaster can be used on walls and ceilings; it has a decorative effect. 

The plaster can also be enhanced with acrylic resins. This can create a tough, rock-hard surface that’s textured, with a marble-like finish that’s a bit glossy. 

Venetian plaster has been around for centuries and was originally used for construction. However, today, this beautiful plaster finish is used to create brilliant interior designs. These can be done in an old-world style or with a more contemporary design. It’s also possible to use Venetian plaster in building restorations. 

Venetian plaster is popular because it looks beautiful. In addition, being made of lime, the plaster doesn’t contain harmful chemicals. This makes it a hypoallergenic choice that holds up well against mould and algae. This type of plaster can also regulate humidity in a space. 

What are the Benefits of Venetian Plastering?

  • The materials used for this type of plastering are low-maintenance and long-lasting. It’s only necessary to re-polish and wax the surfaces once in a while.
  • Venetian polished plaster is highly adaptable; it can be applied to walls and ceilings all throughout a home.
  • The plaster looks like marble; however, it’s much more affordable and thinner. You don’t lose floor space when Venetian plaster is applied to the walls.
  • Venetian plaster is breathable, mould-resistant, and mildew-resistant.
  • This type of plaster adds visual impact to a space.
  • The materials used in Venetian plaster are natural and do not release harmful VOCs into the home.

How Hard is Venetian Plastering?

We have to say that applying Venetian plaster is not something for an amateur to try. For one thing, the material isn’t that easy to work with. And it can easily show imperfections. It usually takes a skilled plasterer several hours to complete one wall.

Amateur plasterers may want to try working with synthetic Venetian plasters, which are easier to apply. They are made with acrylic resin rather than lime. And they’re easier to apply, though they are not traditional.
