a strong durable finish that will last.
Venetian Plaster is a wall and ceiling finish made of thin, decorative plaster applied in multiple layers, which are then troweled to a high-gloss or matte finish. Mike then burnishes them to create a rich, earthy, soft look that creates an elegant finish, giving the appearance of depth and movement reminiscent of marble and stone. Venetian Plaster adds interests to rooms with as much flexibility as paint in terms of application and maintenance. Perfection guaranteed!
Venetian Plaster Artisan
Born in Great Britain into a family of tradesman, Mike charted his own path by moving to the southwest of France where he specialized in restoring 17th century homes and barns. Mike brought his love of lime plaster and masonry stucco with him to America, and he is now applying these traditional European techniques to Venetian and decorative plastering across the Hudson Valley.
Drywall Taping &
Drywall and plaster work is always a messy task. Mike offers clean quality trowel work as well as a dustless sanding system to keep your homes and workplace free of dust.
Venetian decorative plasters have a vast array of finishes that you won’t get with paint or faux finishes. Decorative plasters are ultimately a thin veneer of stone and unlike synthetic finishes, plaster is mold and bacteria resistant. It’s easy to clean and will absorb moisture and evaporate off the surface over time.
lime paint &
Lime paint offers similar characteristics to plaster just doesn't carry the same durability. This finish can be applied on plastered walls to give more depth or applied over freshly primed walls as a sole finish.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“If you have been thinking about updating a room in your home and are looking for something a little different than paint... call Mike! I recently had him come and do our accent wall in the dining room. I was looking for something that would really compliment our fireplace that was recently refaced and wow! We could not be happier with the Venetian plaster Mike did for us. The look is unique yet classic... exactly we had hoped for. Mike was professional from start to finish. He took the time to go over styles, colors and had samples of his very own work on-hand to show us. He laid out the time line of the project and kept to it. I could not recommend him more.”
