Venetian Plaster is an Old World technique using a fine slaked lime mixed with marble dust and pigments. The best lime comes from Northern Italy, near Venice, and it is soaked in water and left to age. The result is a limed water called ‘grassello di calce’ or slaked lime. The artist applies this plaster in multiple layers with a specially shaped steel trowel. The layers are built up with steady pressure and the end result is a stone finish that when burnished, shines like marble. Venetian Plaster will transform an ordinary wall into an artistic masterpiece.
