What is Grassello Venetian Plaster?

Grassello Venetian Plaster is a smooth and glossy wall finish that harks back to the ancient world. Its origins can be traced to the villas of Italy’s Veneto Region, where the mix of slaked lime and marble dust was used to create smooth, reflective surfaces.

Fast-forward to today, this luxurious wall finish has made a grand re-entry into modern interiors in Virginia, Washington DC. Maryland and across the U.S. It offers a depth of color and texture that is hard to achieve with conventional paints or wallpapers. The depth and luminosity of Grassello create a unique three-dimensional effect, breathing life into flat, sterile walls. Each application is unique and mimics the natural beauty of polished stone, marble, or even the smooth touch of ivory.

How is Grassello Venetian Plaster Installed?

This installation process requires skill, precision, and an intimate understanding of the plaster’s behavior, making it vital to hire professionals for the task as it’s both an art and a science.

Chris (Mr. Faux) uses a unique technique that requires meticulousness, patience, and a deep understanding of the materials and techniques involved.

“We first put down the primer. Then we put down a layer of Marmarino then three layers of Grasello compressing the last layer then buffing it up with 1500 – 8000 grit paper polish.”

Once the surface is prepared, they apply the glass-like plaster by troweling it onto the wall in thin, even layers. Each layer is allowed to dry and is then sanded down for a smooth finish before adding the next layer. The final product is a sleek, glass-like finish that is mesmerizing to look at.

The finish can be customized with a wide range of colors to fit any interior design needs. The finish can be combined with pigments to create bold, striking colors, or it can be toned with natural, earthy hues for a more subdued, organic look. Kitchens, bathrooms, ceilings, or walls, it’s a great addition to any room in your home.

Grassello Venetian Plaster is not only beautiful, but it is also highly functional. The plaster is incredibly durable and can withstand scratches, scuffs, and impacts. It is also waterproof and can withstand exposure to moisture, making it ideal for high-humidity areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.
