Beyond Venetian Plastering Manchester uses innovative and high quality specialist wall finishes such a polished plaster to enhance your property’s exteriors as well as interiors.

Polished plaster can also be used to refer to new or revised forms of traditional Italian plaster finishes. It can be used to describe many decorative plaster finishes like Venetian plasters and Marmorino plasters. It also includes rough-hewn, polished plasters.

Polished plaster is used internally to cover walls and ceilings. It creates a look similar to polished marble, limestone or travertine. These plasters can be mixed to create unique effects.

We love working in all our local Manchester areas like these: Ancoats, Hulme, University, St Georges, Brunswick, Ordsall, Strangeways, Ardwick, Moss Side, Cheetham Hill

Coloured Plaster

It is possible to tint or colour-coordinate polished plaster using synthetic or natural colourants. Venetian Plaster can be tinted to any colour or to the natural colour.

Thanks to the ability to match colours from the RAL system, there are virtually unlimited colour options. The European standard is RAL for colours in architecture and construction. To match their colour palettes, many commercial paint brands use RAL colours codes.

It is possible to match paint colors that you love. Farrow and Ball colours, for example, can add a special touch to interior design projects. We have many sample boards to help you select the right surface finish.

Venetian Plaster is an acronym for the ancient technique used to apply stuccoed plaster coatings. It is actually a modern term. Venetian plaster, also called lime plaster, is a mixture of fired limestone, marble dust and water. It can appear like real marble once the surface has had its surface burnished. It is the same material used by our ancestors to create their ancient Egyptian or Greek tombs. It has stood the test and survived both physically, as well.

Stong, Durable and Flexible

Polished plaster can be used in all rooms of the house including bathrooms and kitchens. Wetrooms are feature walls, swimming pool walls and hallways.

Another benefit of Venetian plaster is its durability and low maintenance. Venetian mortar is nearly as flexible in application as paint. In the past, Venetian plaster was difficult to repair and required the entire wall to be replastered. But, it is now possible to fix small marks and blemishes on the spot or wipe them off.

We are proud for the high standard of our work. From the moment that you contact us until the completion of your Manchester luxury wall design, we will be there to provide excellence

Marmorino Plaster

This plaster, or stucco-decorative, is used to decorate walls. It was popularised in Venice’s Renaissance period of 500 years ago. Its antibacterial, waterproof, and visual effects make it a popular choice when designing luxury bathrooms or other wet areas. It is not restricted to interior use. Many buildings can see it outside to great effect.

This finish is highly sought-after and is made from fine marble powders, lime ty, and other materials. A stucco mixture is a finely mixed micro-marble. You can create other effects with this plaster, in addition to the classic marble effect.

It is non-toxic, and does not emit VOC’s. It is also breathable and allows moisture escaping from the substrate.

Venetian plaster can be applied loosely using a spatula or a trowel. It isn’t like multi-finish plasters which are applied in straight lines. The swirls add depth and texture to your surface, instead of giving it a flat or rigid finish. Apply layers and finish by polishing it with a wax coat.

This finish is very popular in Greater Manchester and is frequently used by top architects. It can be left as-is or sealed and waxed.

Venetian Plaster, an ancient surface treatment, has made a comeback to modern houses. It is most commonly used for interior walls, ceilings, and other purposes. It has the same multi-toned effect as natural stone but does not require you to lug or set up heavy slabs.
