What is Venetian Polished Plastering?

 

Polished plastering covers a huge range of different types of decorative plaster finishes and the most authentic wall and ceiling veneer finish you can have. Venetian Polished plaster consists of mainly marble dust, slaked lime, and marble chips and this is exactly the reason why it has such a distinctive look. The main use of polished plaster is on walls as well as ceilings. Typically applied over a primer as well as a key-coat base, layering can be as many as 4-7 times. It is also sealed using a layer of wax for added luxury feel and protection to give a stunning finish.

 

Polished Plastering start to finish

 

Polished Plaster is an Old World technique that started limestone rocks from rivers or quarries. By the use of heat, water and time, the limestone was turned into an amazing slaked lime mix. Mixed with a range of colorants and marble chips, and applied via steel trowels with refined artisan techniques, Polished Plaster turns an ordinary wall or ceiling into a bespoke masterpiece

 

History

 

This material creates the distinct translucent texture of polished plaster. For centuries, fine artisans have been creating beautiful walls through the use of limestone plasters coloured with natural ingredients. As you travel through the Mediterranean countries you are able to see these walls, softened with a rich patina by age. But you don’t need to travel to Europe any longer as these plaster techniques are here at Marmo. They have caught the attention of Interior Designers and Architects in a major way here in the UK. Although some Venetian Plasters are polished or “burnished” with a sheen, techniques have been developed to give a multitude of different effects from suede to marble to stone, we even have full rust effect finish that can lend itself as far as you imagination will allow! It is through the artisan’s imagination and the refinement of technique that truly wonderful effects are created. These effects can be used in many styles. 

 

How is polished plaster made

 

The process of making the polished plaster involved baking the mined limestone (calcium carbonate) in ovens or kilns at between 850-1300 degrees Celsius, producing calcium oxide (quicklime), which is then slaked with water to produce calcium hydroxide. The mixture is then left to mature in maturation tanks. Roman law required the slaked lime to be aged for a minimum of 3 years. This process is called hydration. The result is lime putty or grasselo, also known as non-hydraulic (it will not cure under water), hydrated, because the lime is chemically bound to the water, or aerial lime because it requires exposure to air to cure. Next, the slaked lime putty is filtered and mixed with marble flour, kaolin, marble dust or quartz to produce a variety of decorative plasters.

How to apply Polished plaster finish Smooth Stucco.

 

Applying Venetian Polished Plaster, the London Way. (Smooth Stucco).

 

1. Apply GG Quartz primer by roller or brush and leave to dry. 

 

2. Apply a fine layer of the Smooth Stucco polished plaster / PLVM or Fine Key coat to the wall and work over the surface to remove any obvious lines or scratches. Leave to dry.

 

3. Apply a consistent layer of Smooth Stucco polished plaster / PLVM  working it into the undercoat, and pass the trowel over the surface to remove any obvious lines.

 

4. Leave this layer to dry out a little and when it is just starting to show lighter patches, work a fine layer of the material into the first coat working progressively across the wall. 

 

5. Trowel the surface at 10 minutes intervals until the correct level of polish is achieved for this particular type of polished plaster finish.

 

6. The final surface will be highly polished with subtle movement and variation. Smooth Stucco polished plaster finish is a natural mineral material and if left in its natural state will allow the substrate to breathe. If protection against dirt and spillage is required it can be waxed with White Wax or Aquawax.

Foot Asylum, Concrete Adidas displays. Sep 7, 2016

 

Towards the end of August Marmo Stucco carried out another two concrete polished plaster projects for two adidas displays to be used popular highstreet store Foot Asylum. One display went to the flagship store on Oxford Street and the other to Westfields, Stratford, London.

 

The displays were comprised of many varying MDF pieces from sets of steps to screen covers and box units with the adidas logo cut out. Each piece was a tricky task as they were odd shapes and every edge had a 5mm 45 degree bevelled edge which needed to be covered in polished plaster.

 

We always enjoy these projects when they come through the door as they are always different and test the boundaries in one way or another. This is our seventh such job and we look forward to carrying out many

 

 

 

Gold Leaf in the Gherkin - St. Mary's Axe Aug 15, 2016

 

Marmo Stucco have just finished creating a truly stunning bespoke Polished Plaster feature wall high up in London's infamous skyline inside one of London's landmark building, the Gherkin – 30 st Marys Axe EC3A 8EP.

 

We were approached by a design company who wanted to incorperate their clients logo into one of the walls in a private dining room that they were refurbishing. They were also keen to create the logo using a rich gold colour, so we suggested using a stencil and applying gold leaf to the recessed design that would be left behind when removing the stencil during our application.

 

We created 2 samples using a highly polished plaster "Marmorino Spatula" and another using our "pitted" polished plaster, the client choose the Spatula finish.

 

The results were stunning and its safe to say there isnt another wall like this anywhere else in London. A bespoke piece.
