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.

There are many ways to apply lime paint. Providing great examples of how-to-apply lime paint to create effects such as cera fresco, lime washing, travertine tile, and many others. Known for it's amazing strength, adhesion, and resistance to many of atmospheric agents, lime paint is becoming a common medium for painters, faux finishers, and plaster and stucco finishers.

La Rialto Calce- Lime Paint

Lime paint can be used on a wide selection of surfaces. It is a mineral based paint with great strength. Today's modern faux finisher has many uses for lime paint, and can easily achieve effects such as lime washing, fresco finishing, and use it for decorative masonry painting.

Lime Paint is mineral paint based on slaked lime and principally inorganic stable pigments. Its high transpiration together with the carbonation reaction gives the paint excellent adhesion to mineral substrates without flaking. In addition, the natural calcium oxide composition of the product makes it resistant to attacks by bacteria and fungi, thus fighting the formation of mold inside buildings. Typically used as an exterior wall coating, Lime Paint serves many purposes, such as, lime washing, fresco fresco painting, and suede tone finishing. When diluted, it creates a dimensional surface with both light and dark shades of the particular base color of the paint itself.

Aluminum Leaf


Dutch Gold or
composition leaf


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.

Purchase Aluminum Leaf
Purchase Genuine Silver Leaf

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.
