Polished Plastering Christchurch

Polished Plaster Christchurch (BH23)

Polished plaster is a popular terminology for the surface finish of several plasters and for the classification of modern kinds of traditional Italian plaster finishes. The phrase "Polished Plaster" is generally used to cover a fairly wide range of good quality plaster finishes, from rugged looking textured plasters to very highly polished Marmorino, Venetian and Lucidato plasters. Supplying a finish that looks much like travertine, limestone or marble, polished plaster is largely used on inside ceilings and walls. Polished plaster gives a feeling of depth by using natural variations in shade whilst being smooth and sleek when touched. Distinct custom finishes can be created by blending these different types of plasters. With the use of natural or artificial colourants polished plaster can take on beautiful tints or colours. If you wish to achieve a "marbled" effect in your Venetian plaster, or unique designs or colours which do not exist in nature, the ability to add a tint to Venetian plaster is particularly important.
