This month’s Featured Artist and Product!

This Month’s featured product is Firmolux, a fine Italian lime plaster. We are always excited to see our plasters used to create incredible finishes. This August Shawn Burke from Bravura Finishes out of Lake Oswego demonstrates how this amazing Venetian Plaster can be applied in a commercial setting so beautifully!

Shawn used Grasso diCalce, made with refined lime and marble, it is Frimolux’s most luxurious product.
He applied it in three layers each tinted a different color. The result is a polished and professional look that will last years.

Firmolux plaster isn’t mined, its dredged from streams and river beds in Europe, so its naturally smoother, more luxurious and the perfect finish for a modern or classic look.
