Antique Plaster Effects

artSparx has created a 3 stage step-by-step tutorial series. Series 1 begins with basic plaster application, our 2nd series illustrates antique glazing and plaster distressing methods, culminating in the final fresco simulation series 3, hand-painted elements. You can complete each tutorial as a finish and style in it's own right. Or, depending on your interests and style needs, combine the tutorials to achieve the hand-painted fresco appearance that will bring your environment to life.
 

Tuscan Style

Design Style Feature

Tuscan style evolved through layers of history, taking cues from the earliest Etruscan metal craft and pottery, and of course, from the sumptuous world of the Italian Renaissance. In Tuscany one finds frescoes, cracked and worn by time, still vibrant with original pigment, depicting ancient deities and the decadence of the late Roman empire.

Always test an area to be taped before beginning the masking job. Wallpaper is particularly susceptible to tearing. Lacquer and varnish surfaces on furniture may come off easily with the tape and the item could be severely damaged.

MarmoFloat

MarmoFloat is a slaked lime finish with a slight texture. Considered a thicker grained Marmorino, capable of creating marble effects when compacted, it can be polished. When left un-compressed, it provides a stone like texture.

Brochure - Catalog

 

Commonly categorized as "Marmorino", "MarmoFloat" is comparable to many of the products found on the West coast and parts of the South, where versions of Marmorino have been considered to be a more granular slaked lime aggregate finish.

Considered by many Italians the salt and pepper Marmorino, or perhaps Marmorino Naturale, MarmoFloat is an excellent product with many beneficial features.

Using select Calce di Fiore aggregate, MarmoFloat combines aerial-lime technology with decorative application techniques to provide an impressive interior/exterior coating. Using select earth oxide pigments, MarmoFloat is typically tinted to neutral colors using the Ossidi automated tinting system. Applied using stainless steel trowels and smoothened with sponge floats, MarmoFloat becomes very soft and flexible during it's application, allowing it to become smooth and polished.  Giving the wall

decorative depth and protection against mold-mildew, while allowing the surface to breath are just a few of the benefits MarmoFloat.
 
 
MarmoFloat is a slaked lime finish with a slight texture. Considered a thicker grained Marmorino, capable of creating marble effects when compacted, it can be polished. When left un-compressed, it provides a stone like texture. Popular amongst the traditional travertino effect or limestone effects, it is an elegant finish for both modern and classic settings. MarmoFloat is a physically drying, mono-component, lime based finishing putty for base coats and finishing coats. Overall, it is a mold-proof, transpiring, textured finish with a wide variety of uses.

Aluminum Leaf


Dutch Gold or

Aluminum Leaf imitates the illusion of genuine Silver, at a fraction of the cost. Each individual sheet is bigger and easier to handle then its genuine counter part.

The same applies for 'Dutch Gold', or 'Composition Leaf'. But due to the large brass content, this imitation gold must have a sealer applied to prevent tarnishing, unlike genuine gold leaf.
