What is Venetian Plaster?

Venetian plaster, or stucco Veneziano, has been used for centuries around the world, in homes, offices, and on architectural masterpieces in the catacombs of Rome, the ruins of Pompeii and the Aqueduct of Segovia in Spain. Architects, interior designers, artists, and home owners have all marveled at the distinctive beauty of this form of wall surfacing because of its smooth finish and silk-like shine.  Venetian Plaster is different than other types of stucco in its multiple layers and high polished –marble like surface. These seasoned slaked lime finishes are used on interior and exterior surfaces.  Its uniqueness lies, in large part, with the processes and ingredients that have remained consistent since the first century AD.  READ MORE & VIEW SAMPLES

What is a Faux Finish?

Faux Painting/Finishes have been used for millennia (over 5,000 years).  From the cave paintings of the ancient Mayans to the tombs in Egypt, generations have sought to “fool the eye” and to inspire beauty.  Artists would apprentice for at least 10 years with a master faux painter before working on their own. Great recognition was awarded to artists who could actually trick viewers into believing their work was the real thing.  Faux painting has continued to be popular throughout the ages, but experienced major resurgences in the neoclassical revival of the nineteenth century and the Art Deco styles of the 1920s. Although they are usually used to create areas that simulate wood, marble, and stone, our craft is so much more than these techniques.  READ MORE & VIEW SAMPLES
