Venetian Stucco

Putting together the ultimate finish on your interior or exterior walls can include a whole lot more than wallpaper, siding or a few coats of paint. When you hire the right team of professionals, you can open yourself up to a whole new world of wall finishes for both residential and commercial spaces. If it happens to be Venetian stucco installation in Seattle that you are interested in, there are some things that you should know about this product and process.

What Is Venetian Stucco?

Venetian stucco, also known as Venetian plaster, is a type of ceiling and wall finish that is comprised of plaster that is combined with marble dust. Once mixed, it can be applied using a trowel or spatula in very thin, multiple layers. In some instances, these multiple layers are burnished to help create a surface that is smooth with the illusion of both texture and depth. The three different types of Venetian stucco include marmorino, scagliola, and sgraffito.

  • Marmorino Stucco – This is a type of plaster or stucco that is used for both interior and exterior wall finishing. It is crafted using lime putty and crushed marble along with colored tint to create a variety of tones and textures.
  • Scagliola Stucco – This is a type of technique that is often used for creating sculptures, columns, and other elements in architecture that will resemble precious stones or the inlays in marble. The product is composed of glue, selenite, and natural pigments to mimic marble as well as other hard stones.
  • Sgraffito Stucco – Also referred to as scraffito, this is a finishing technique achieved by applying layers of tinted plaster with contrasting colors to a surface that has been moistened.
