Venetian plaster is a broad term pertaining to the use of Lime and Marble based render applied to walls and ceilings surfaces. Historically Venetian plaster is produced from quarries in Italy, the Limestone is superheated and crushed to make a powder that is mixed with selected Marble powders, natural binders and water constituting a fine paste. These paste's or plaster are then applied by skilled Artisans with the use of stainless steel trowels in multiple layers and compressed as it cures to form a thin veneer surface of Lime and Marble.

Venetian and Clay plasters act as a natural dehumidifier and air purifier as part of its life cycle, the plaster calcifies over time becoming harder by feeding off the carbon in the air therefore removing CO2 from the immediate area. It also has the natural ability to absorb humidity from the air creating a dryer environment and then releases it back to the air in when the temperature rises to help control the ambient temperature and humidity of the space.
