Smooth to the touch with a luxurious high glassy finish, this plaster is truly amazing.
The plaster can be left unwaxed, but we recommend waxing with Decor Wax or one of our other waxes to protect the surface from everyday dirt.
The wax helps keep the surface clean and free of wear and tear, while still allowing you to showcase the beauty of the plaster.
We always recommend ordering a 1kg pot before ordering a large amount. For first-time customers or to make up a sample, the 1kg pot is a great way to sample the product.

The application method of Polished Plaster typically involves the following steps:

Surface preparation: The surface to be treated with polished plaster should be clean, dry, and free from any loose or flaking material. If necessary, repair any cracks or imperfections and ensure the surface is smooth.

Primer application: Apply a coat of primer to the prepared surface with brush or roller. The primer helps with adhesion and ensures a smooth base for the Polished Plaster.
For Lucidato, you can 'knock back' the dry primer with a old trowel, scraper or sand paper to take out the high grains.
It is recommended to then the primer 10% if using over dry skimmed plaster.

1st layer application: Once the primer has dried, apply a base coat of Polished Plaster with a specialist trowel over the dried primer.
Aim for a smooth application with no trowel lines, this layer doesn't have to be too thick, aim for 2 to 3 mm.
Trowel lines and other imperfections can be trowelled out when the plaster has dried to a 'putty state'. This coat is typically applied with a trowel in an even layer.

2nd layer application is where you start to create the pattern.
Apply in patches, overlapping one patch over the next patch by 50% applying patches in all directions.
Smooth down the plaster as you go to leave an even application of patches over the entire wall area.

Final layer application: Apply the final layer of Polished Plaster, following the same process as the 2nd layer coat patching in all directions and overlapping each patch by 50%. You now need to burnish this layer with a clean fault free blade.
Burnish, cut and smooth the damp plaster every one to two square feet, repeating this process as you apply over the wall.

Waxing: To protect the polished plaster and enhance its durability, it is recommended to apply a suitable wax. The wax helps to prevent staining and makes the surface easier to clean and maintain. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific sealer being used.

It is important to note that the application method may vary depending on the specific product and manufacturer. Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for the best results. If unsure, it is advisable to consult with a professional who has experience working with polished plaster.

A guide for Marmorino Polished Venetian Plaster Application.

Tools Required:

Stainless steel Venetian plaster trowels: A range of sizes will be useful (small, medium, and large).
Plastic trowel or float: For initial smoothing and texture creation (if desired).
Sandpaper: Fine-grit, such as 400 or 600, for rounding trowel edges and any minor surface corrections.
Buckets and cleaning tools.
Clean cloths or sponges
Painter's tape: This is used to protect edges and trim.
Protective gear: Gloves and mask (if sanding creates dust).

Application Process:

1. Surface Preparation

Cure Time: Let your newly plastered walls cure for the recommended duration (consult plaster manufacturer's instructions). This is crucial for a stable base.
Priming: Apply a suitable primer designed for Venetian plaster. This will create a uniform surface and enhance adhesion. Let the primer dry thoroughly.

2. Base Coat

Trowel Application: Using a large stainless steel trowel, apply a thin, even coat of Marmorino across the entire wall. For best results, hold the trowel at a shallow angle (about 15-30 degrees).
Drying: Let this base coat dry fully. Drying times vary, so refer to the product's information.

3. Second Coat

Random Strokes: Apply the second coat in a similar manner to the first, but instead of aiming for perfect uniformity, use varied, slightly overlapping trowel strokes at different angles. This is how the classic, marbled look of Venetian plaster begins to emerge.
Drying: Again, allow this layer to dry thoroughly.

4. Subsequent Coats (Optional)

Thin Layers: More coats (usually up to three) can be applied, each one thinner than the last, using varying trowel strokes to increase depth and visual interest.
Drying Between Coats: Ensure each coat is fully dry before applying the next.

5. Burnishing/Polishing

Timing: Once the final coat is partially dry but still slightly pliable, begin burnishing.
Trowel Pressure: Press firmly with a clean stainless steel trowel in short, overlapping strokes at varying angles. This compresses the plaster, creating the characteristic polished sheen.
Intensify Gloss: Continue burnishing in overlapping sweeps to increase the level of polish as desired.

6. Sealing (Optional)

Protection: A coat of wax or dedicated Venetian plaster sealer can be applied for added water resistance and durability, especially in high-traffic or moisture-prone areas.
Follow the sealer's application instructions.
Important Tips:

Practice: If you're new to Venetian plastering, practice on a spare board first to perfect your technique.
Working in Sections: Tackle smaller sections of the wall at a time. This prevents the plaster from drying too quickly before you can work it.
Temperature and Humidity: Ideal conditions are moderate temperatures and humidity. Avoid applying in direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.

Clean as you go: Prevent dried plaster from building up on your tools by cleaning them frequently.
