Grasso diCalce (Grassello) is commonly used to achieve that traditional smooth and shiny finish. The Marmorino Collection of plasters is a lime and marble blend of materials for interior and exterior use 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.
MicroPrimer and Anchor Primer (a trowel on primer) are the deluxe products that make your plaster application flawless.
Today, stucco is produced throughout the world, but the true Venetian Plasters or "Stucco Veneziano" is still only produced in a small region of Northern Italy, utilizing the same water and stones used for centuries. Many have tried to match or copy this product, but like any good cook will tell you, "food always tastes better when using the fresh ingredients from the very region that inspired it."
EcoStucco makes a range of natural lime plasters designed to protect, renew, and enhance interior and exterior walls. User-friendly, EcoStucco may be installed by hand or mechanical projection. A sustainable alternative to cement plasters, acrylic plasters, and other high-energy coating products, EcoStucco is made with minimal, but expert, preparation from limestone of superior quality. Once applied, the lime naturally hardens into calcium carbonate (limestone), providing a healthy, lasting mineral shell. Pure white or tinted with natural mineral pigments, finishes achieved with EcoStucco will never require painting, and are virtually maintenance-free.
Various green building programs have been developed to help reduce buildings’ impact on the environment. The LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System, developed by the US Green Building Council, is one of the most widely used building rating systems in Northern America.

eco stucco™ is a range of proprietary lime plasters designed to provide healthy, functional, and sustainable mineral finishes for interior, exterior walls and ceilings. These finish systems decorate and embellish walls & facades in the form of artistically hand-troweled artisan plasters. Essentially composed of natural mineral with minimal but expert preparation, eco stucco™ results in a long lasting crust of calcium carbonate derived from both the presence of sand and the carbonation of lime.
SkimStone was originally designed to transform a plain concrete floor into a work of art. This decorative finishing system provides an organic, textured look that is extremely durable indoors and out for residential and commercial spaces. SkimStone has evolved into a concrete veneer coating for countertops and walls. With its Bonding Primer it can adhere to tile, laminates and wood. It is a very forgiving product to work with and allows the applicator to mimic the look of marble, tile, concrete, granite and stone.
“SKIMSTONE GOES RIGHT OVER FORMICA COUNTERTOPS OR LAMINATE (LINOLEUM, TILES, ETC.) FLOORING! This is one of my favorite products because there is nothing like it. You can mix colors and tint levels as well as add sand and glass to achieve a very unique concrete look. It can add beauty and presence to modern, transitional and old-world settings.” – Adrienne
Farrow & Ball paint colors are used around the world to adorn the walls of some of the most prestigious properties and art galleries.
Farrow & Ball has been making paint in Dorset, England one batch at a time, since the company was founded, and remains one of only a handful of companies making a full range of traditional and modern paint finishes of the very highest quality.
The paint is tinted with natural powder pigments so the color is throughout the emulsion. When you open the can you will notice the color doesn’t separate from the base. That is why the colors maintain such a rich velvety finish. Also, a gallon of paint covers 400 to 425 sq. ft., which is about 75 to 100 sq. ft. more than regular paint.
Wallpapers are generally made using ink. Not ours. Determined to follow in our founder’s footsteps, we use traditional block and trough printing methods as well as our own richly pigmented paint, to give each design a sumptuous and tactile texture, unique to Farrow & Ball.
