Professionally done Venetian plastering is quickly turning into a modern take for interior décor plans across the country from homeowners to industry experts. And why not? It is an exceptionally unique home wall treatment solution that offers unique decorative techniques and styles used in interior and exterior décor. It gives walls and ceilings a polished and stunning finish. Even though it is a new take on interior design, Venetian plastering is one of the older techniques used for a century. In modern times, Venetian plaster is used to complement many more aspects of the home than typically imagined. We have much more information about this wall treatment but for the purpose of this guide, we’ll be focused on the benefits.
What Is Venetian Plastering?
Venetian plaster is a style theme that copies some of the old architectural elements of Italy and its most famous cities. It aims to mimic the same feeling of vintage Italy and the extraordinary building designs in it. Homeowners across Australia are always looking for stylish and unique wall treatments and this is one of them growing in popularity. Venetian plastering or Italian plastering is an easy-to-apply process of decorating your wall or ceiling surface with a textured marble-like finish that gives them a luxurious and polished look. Venetian plaster gives walls and surfaces a natural look. You can use them in various areas of your home including the interior because its application process is flexible. This technique can be used to add that bit of beauty to a home.
How Venetian plaster is applied?
Venetian plaster involves a number of different materials because it is a combination of plastering and polishing. It delivers a textured look with a marble finish which isn’t easy to achieve even for the most experienced wall renders in Brisbane. Before we even get to the work of applying the Venetian plaster, we will take our time in understanding your needs and what you’d like to achieve. Preparation is also highly important to ensure that your investment lasts, and we take our time with this one. We’ll have to smoothen the wall and remove any existing wallpapers and manage any cracks or holes that need filling. We’ll then carry out the application of your Venetian plaster using a multi-coat process. The density of the application is entirely dependent on the desired finish you aim to achieve.
What is unique about Venetian plaster?
If you’re asking yourself what differentiates Venetian plaster or lime plaster from other plasters, the one thing is that the formula is different because it delivers a one-of-a-kind result. You’ll be happy to know that modern Venetian plaster materials are some of the best we’ve ever had to work with. That is because they are designed with low-maintenance requirements in mind, and they are very durable. With more traditional plaster techniques, you’d need a full re-plaster to cover one scuff or blemish, but that isn’t the case anymore. Venetian plaster, along with other plaster techniques, can be easily repaired in patches and then blended with the rest of the wall. Plasters that have more complex aggregate pictures require more frequent maintenance, but we can arrange an affordable plan with the team at Rapid Rendering.

Venetian plaster Maintenance & Care
Even though we’ve already mentioned that this plaster type is easy to maintain, there are certain things you can do to preserve its elegance and make it even more durable. Other than the work of cleaning it regularly, there are also professional wall maintenance works at your disposal. Venetian plaster that is applied by experienced contractors will be sealed with a special protective material. This film helps to make the application waterproof and protects it against moisture retention, grease, and grime. This also helps to make daily care of polished plaster walls less complicated than you may imagine. Seal plaster is easy for you to clean yourself but if you’re still worried about it, you’re welcome to give us a call and we can help out at your earliest convenience. You don’t need intense cleaning products and tools to keep your plaster looking good. All you need is a damp cotton cloth and a dry one for dusting every now and they will help restore the original lustre of the finish. It’s also important that you handle repairs properly even though Venetian plaster is designed for durability. However, cracks and scratches can still help, and the repair process is fairly easy if you contact a professional. Polished plaster is very easy to repair because of the complex multi-coat process we have already described. That means we can easily address damaged layers and get back that smooth appearance without the need for re-plastering the entire wall.
