Renderer Great Cornard

Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface.

Polished Plaster Great Cornard

Polished Plaster Great Cornard (CO10)

Polished plaster is a common terminology for the finished surface of certain plasters and for the description of modern kinds of old fashioned Italian plaster finishes. The expression describes a large array of ornamental plaster finishes - from the extremely highly polished Venetian plaster, Lucidato and Marmorino to the textured polished plasters. Used generally on internal walls and ceilings, polished plaster is supposed to deliver a finish that looks like polished marble, travertine or limestone. Polished plaster offers natural variations of shade giving an impression of depth whilst still smooth to the touch. Additionally, it is entirely possible to blend these forms of plasters to obtain quite original tailor-made finishes. Through the use of synthetic or natural colourants, beautiful colours or tints can be given to the polished plaster finish. This is especially important when trying to obtain "marbled" effects or to produce designs and colours that don't exist naturally.
