About D J J Italian Marble Plastering

I have lived in the South Hams since the early 1960s. My most recent years have been spent working in the building trade mainly renovating and restoring old properties using traditional methods of stone work with lime mortars and rendering.

It was during such a project a client requested that the technique of Italian/Venetian marble plastering be used in their pool house. Wishing to understand more about this process I embarked on my first course in North Devon. My love and admiration for this technique was born. I therefore wanted to develop my skills further and attended a more advanced course in Sussex.

With my artistic interests and skills I am able to offer you the opportunity to enjoy the luxury and authenticity of this grand Italian era in your home, providing you with not just the quality and durability of this form of decoration, but also the beauty that comes with it.

Areas covered

Plaster Styles
The six plaster styles used by Italian Plastering are:


Lucidato
The final coat of this plaster is burnished to a glassy sheen and lustre with a smooth touch finish, creating a beautiful, luxurious high gloss look.

Marmorino Limestone, Portland Stone and York Stone
This finish is characteristic of the smooth faux stone pitted appearance seen in much of Venetian architecture. It has a soft patina created by using elements of fine ground marble dust. This makes it ideal for blocking asglar (tile) effect.
