  The Old World beauty and elegance of Venetian Plaster. Timeless. Regal. Sophisticated. These are just a few ways to describe Venetian Plaster, a finishing technique that has few rivals. Ideal areas for Venetian Plaster includes kitchens, powder rooms, bathrooms, and dining rooms. However, the best way to describe Venetian Plaster in it's many forms and styles is to actually touch it, feel it, and enjoy it's visual depth in your own home or business in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.

The Piece de Resistance of finishes, few applications that one chooses for interior walls can match the polish and exquisiteness of Venetian Plaster. Traditional and authentic European Venetian Plasters, referred to as Italian Plaster, Venetian Plaster or Decorative Stucco, are a composition of natural slaked lime, marble dust and water. Many traditional Venetian Plasters use natural pigments, thus being available mostly in an earth tone range of color and not able to be as intense in color as synthetic forms of Venetian Plaster. These Venetian Plasters calcify upon oxidation with air when applied, returning to their natural limestone state. When applied in thin layers, Venetian Plaster can be burnished to a smooth, reflective, marble like finish.

Modern synthetic Venetian Plasters, with the addition of polymers and resins are often used and come in a wider range of colors, as well as variants of what is considered Traditional Venetian Plaster. Some of these products can add an interesting twist on design concepts when considering Venetian Type Plaster finishes.
