Venetian Plaster is created from mixing Natural Lime Plaster, Marble Dust and Pigment to create a hard finish that when applied can be polished.  The finished result can be a high gloss down to a matt finish.

Palazzo VersaceGold and Metal Leaf:

Gold leaf is an ultra-thin layer of pure gold used to create a gilded appearance on projects such as mouldings and ornate ceilings.

It is extremely fragile by nature, and will adhere to almost any moistened surface.

Marbling:

Marbling is the art of painting multi-coloured swirled or stone-like patterns onto Walls or Columns. It  involves painting an egg shell base onto the entire area then sponging a marble-like finish, layer on layer until the desired result is achieved.

Faux Stone:

Creating the look of stone can involve several techniques and a variety of tools such as Sea Sponges, Rags and Plastic Bags with a 3 to 1 ratio of Glaze to Paint.

Textures:

Textured paint comes with a variety of options.

  • The premixed form contains small, gravel like particles and is grainy in appearance. It is often applied to ceilings where plaster or concrete is not uniform.
  • Another variety is very thick and smooth which requires special application tools like trowels or textured rollers. Once applied, this type of textured paint has the appearance of stucco.

Wallpaper:

Wallpaper is a material used to cover and decorate the interior walls of homes, offices, and buildings.  it is one aspect of interior decoration. Wallpapers can come plain as ‘lining paper’ (so that it can be painted), textured such as Anaglypta, with a regular repeating pattern design, or, much less commonly today, with a single non-repeating large design carried over a set of sheets.
