In the world of construction and interior design, Venetian Plastering is a technique that we at Rapid Rendering are deeply passionate about. With 30+ years of experience under our belts, we’ve become Brisbane-based rendering experts, also specialising in the art of Venetian plastering. However, it’s common for our clients to ask, “What sets Venetian Plastering apart from Standard Slastering?” In this blog, we will explore the key differences, illuminating the unique qualities of each method.
What is Standard Plastering?
Standard plastering, a widely used method across the construction industry, involves applying a layer of plaster to a surface to create a smooth and uniform finish. The end result is a blank canvas, ready for a coat of paint or wallpaper. Standard plastering is known for its simplicity, speed of application and affordability. As standard plastering involves installing the actual plaster panels, Rapid Rendering, does not offer this service.
The Charm of Venetian Plastering
Now, let’s transport ourselves to the romantic cityscapes of Venice, the birthplace of Venetian plastering. This centuries-old technique offers an elegant and luxurious aesthetic that standard plastering simply cannot achieve.
Venetian plaster, sometimes called Italian plaster, is a mixture of slaked lime, marble dust, and sometimes colourants for a vibrant finish. The process of applying Venetian plaster is meticulous, sometimes requiring multiple layers to be applied by a skilled artisan. Each layer is polished, resulting in a depth and richness of colour that is unparalleled. When the final layer is burnished, the surface shimmers, reflecting light in a unique way that emulates the look of marble or natural stone.
At Rapid Rendering, we have honed this technique, offering our Brisbane clientele a taste of Venetian elegance without leaving home.
Standard Plastering vs Venetian Plastering: A Comparison
There are several distinctions between standard and Venetian plastering, which affect not only their appearance but also their performance.
- Aesthetic Appeal: While standard plaster offers a clean and simple finish, Venetian plaster delivers a luxurious, high-end look with an enticing depth and texture.
- Application: Standard plastering is a faster process requiring fewer layers than Venetian plastering, which requires skill, time, and patience to create its signature look.
- Durability: Venetian plaster tends to be more durable and resistant to damage due to its layers and the inclusion of marble dust.
- Cost: Standard plastering is generally more affordable, while Venetian plastering, given its intricate process and premium materials, comes at a higher price.
