Venetian Plaster Installation Process
Venetian plaster lasts a very long time when it’s applied correctly. After many years of installing Venetian plaster, we’re always careful to abide by the traditional techniques embraced for centuries. Because this method of plastering is so old, over time, the techniques have been refined to perfection. We adhere to tradition because it helps us achieve the best results possible.
Here is a step-by-step look at how we install our time-tested Venetian plaster.
Step 1: Primer
The primer coat is as important as the plaster coating. It’s essential to mix the primer correctly to obtain proper support for the plaster as it will eventually flake off unless it has a properly mixed and applied primer coating. The primer must be diluted with distilled water and carefully blended to provide long-lasting hold. We’ll roll it onto the wall, creating the base for the traditional Venetian plaster look.
Step 2: Color mixing
The color preparation is a critical stage. A simple and practical color mixing strategy allows for a wide range of colors and shades. Before the colorant is added, we’ll mix the plaster until it reaches an even consistency. We then add the colorant additive and mix it until it reaches a perfectly uniform thickness. The color mixing process takes roughly 10 minutes to get the perfect texture and shade.
Step 3: Wait
Great results take time. At this point, we must let the primer and plaster sit for 12 hours before the application can begin.
Step 4: Tools
Using the right tools is the key to attaining an excellent result. We’re careful to keep the correct plastering trowels and spatulas on hand so that the first coat, all subsequent coats, and the polishing all goes according to plan.
Step 5: First coat application
The first coat is uncolored and must be applied uniformly to provide the perfect foundation for subsequent coats. We use the spatula at a consistent 15-degree angle to ensure the subsequent coats go on properly. Once the layer is perfectly applied and we remove all excess material, we must wait for 10 hours for it to dry and apply the next coat.
Step 6: Second coat application.
This coat will be applied with the spatula at a steeper 30-degree angle to achieve a flat surface for the third coat. The second coat takes the same amount of time to dry out as the first.
Step 7: Third coat
With an even steeper, forty-five-degree angle, we’ll apply the third coat of colored plaster. The third coat is responsible for much of the visual texture Venetian plaster is lauded for. The plaster is applied slightly unevenly to achieve an authentically rustic appearance, in contrast to the uniform prior layers.
Step 8: Polishing.
About 10 minutes after the third coat is applied, we’ll polish the plaster with the same spatula used for the third coat and apply decisive pressure to smooth it out, leaving a gorgeously patterned surface.
Step 9: Wax application.
Forty-eight hours after the third coat is applied, we apply a coat of wax with a soft sponge. We’ll apply the wax no more than one square meter at a time until it’s completely absorbed by the surface. Once complete, we’ll polish the wax with a non-woven cloth until it acquires the desired sheen. The wax coating protects the plaster from dirt and dust, ensuring it lasts according to its reputation.
This is the traditional way of applying Venetian plaster. It has been done this way for many centuries, and we continue to do it this way because it yields the results our clients want. Maverick Plastering LLC is the team to call for traditionally applied Venetian plaster.
