Information and History

      Venetian Plaster :- is an Old World technique that starts with limestone rocks from rivers or quarries.  By the use of heat, water and time, the limestone is turned into an amazing lime putty.  Mixed with such colorants as ground marble dust, and applied via steel trowels with refined techniques, Venetian Plaster turns an ordinary wall or ceiling into a masterpiece.

      Although some Venetian Plasters are polished or burnished with a sheen, techniques have been developed to give a multitude of different effects from suede to marble to stone.  It is through the artisans imagination and the refinement of technique that truly wonderful effects are created.

Question: Does your course provider offer you Dvd's and loads of meterage and full support forever? We do your trainer is in them
Question: If you can smell a strong odour the chances are that it has a binding agent in, which also creates delam and most importantly indicates that the products have been played around with and are not genuine? Ours are Authentic and Guaranteed

  • Polished Plaster is another name for Venetian plaster (Italian: Stucco Veneziano). At Goldtrowel it's the quality of the material, experience and the knowledge of the applicator. My goal is to provide our students who train with us the best of both.
