Since the first century AD, Plastering techniques and processes remained much the same. While always in use, it was rediscovered and made popular again in the Italian Renaissance. Artists and architects embraced it as both an old and new technique, and Venetian plaster became a highly desired finish for walls. Whether you want heavy texture or high gloss completely smooth, I have an option that will work for you. One popular finishing technique is Venetian Plaster. It involves thin layers of plaster applied with a trowel and then burnished to create a smooth surface with the illusion of depth and texture. This is just one of several plaster finishes, glass beads and 3D gels I offer.
