Venetian Plaster ~ Marmorino Veneziano

Marmorino Veneziano - Venetian Stucco - Italian Plaster - is a beautiful, luxurious and durable wall finish bringing not only patterns and colors to your space but depth and texture as well. The Old Village Design Studio can bring this fabulous look to your home or business. The bar above at The Carmel Kitchen and Wine Bar in Devon features a gorgeous blue venetian plaster that we created.


Our Venetian Plaster is real plaster - not paint!


People have been mixing lime, minerals, and sand to make plaster for thousands of years, examples date back to to tombs near to Pyramids at Gaza. The ancient Romans were known for their expertise in plaster, but the art was apparently lost until it was revived again during the Renaissance when it was widely used for frescos, including those in the ceiling of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel.

Venice became known for its plaster not only because of its beauty but also its durability. The Venetians used terra cotta scraps and leftover stone and marble mixed with lime to make a wall finish that was not only very fashionable, but also very practical since it resisted mildew even in very damp conditions - very important in a city built on water! It was often left white but can also be mixed with colors to give it a wide variety of decorative effects.

Venetian plaster can be used anywhere in your home - or business. It can be left as a matte finish or burnished to a very high sheen to look like marble or other polished stone. And the colors and patterns are unlimited! Its durability and resistance to moisture make it suitable for powder rooms, kitchens and public spaces such as bars and restaurants. It is also a great surface for murals or fresco paintings as Michelangelo has shown us.
