Firmolux Italian Lime Plaster, also referred to as “Venetian Plaster,” is visually beautiful, elegant and timeless. Authentic Italian Lime Plasters are capable of creating a depth, sheen and longevity naturally that synthetic plasters just can’t achieve. The Grasso diCalce (Grassello) is commonly used to achieve that traditional smooth and shiny finish that has made Italian plasters famous. The Marmorino collection of plasters is a lime and marble blend of materials that will achieve a smooth contemporary finish to a textured old world ambiance. The unique Milano metallic plaster (gold, silver and bronze) creates a luxurious satin finish that is nothing but understated elegance. Finally, the MicroPrimer (a trowel on primer product that creates a perfect base) is the deluxe product to make your plaster job go flawlessly.
“After 13 years of decorative finish application experience, I have finally found the perfect Venetian Plaster – Firmolux, Italian Lime Plaster. It goes on like butter and is so easy to burnish. I love that it can maintain the matte to satin finish, which is much more desirable in the Northwest, as well as can be burnished to a mirror-like sheen. The final deciding factor for me to carry this product line in the store was the Milano, metallic plaster, because of its unique elegance.” – Adrienne
