Types of Venetian Plaster Available

Smooth and polished or imitating natural stones? Carved designs or vibrant patterns? The choice is yours! Venetian plaster offers remarkable versatility and endless creative possibilities to enhance the beauty and charm of your space. Whether you prefer neutral tones, bold colours, or subtle variations, we offer a variety of Venetian plaster options to suit your style, preferences, and budget.

There are countless combinations and styles available, all with varying names, but the main three classic options are Marmorino, Instinto & Micro Cement.


Marmorino is a classic Venetian plaster technique known for its smooth and polished appearance. It dates back to ancient Rome and has been widely used throughout history. This technique involves mixing slaked lime, marble dust, and other natural ingredients to create a durable and elegant plaster finish. It offers a range of finishes, from a matte appearance to a polished sheen. Its versatility allows for various textures and effects, including marble-like veining, subtle colour variations, and a sense of depth. Marmorino is a popular choice for both contemporary and traditional spaces, adding sophistication and timeless beauty to any interior.

Spatula Stuhhi

Spatula Stuhhi is one of the glossiest Venetian plaster options, providing a durable surface that gives the appearance of polished marble. It offers exceptional breathability and resistance to alkaline attacks, and its continuous carbonation process ensures excellent resistance to humidity, which makes it an outstanding anti-mildew and anti-bacterial solution.

Infused with marble powders and additives, it boasts superior surface adhesion and smooth application, culminating in a glossy, natural finish of unparalleled quality.


Crafted from a lime base infused with marble powders, natural minerals, and MICA, this style of Venetian plaster creates a smooth, luxurious surface that subtly reflects light, adding depth to your walls. The plaster’s versatility allows for various textures and colours and provides a beautiful natural look.

Remarkably durable, it retains its breathable nature over time, allowing water vapour to pass through. This breathability helps regulate indoor moisture, promoting a healthier environment. Its simple application and superb filling capabilities match its innate resistance to mould and bacteria, making it ideal for our humid climate. Easy to maintain and resistant to fading, Muro Naturale Venetian plaster ensures long-lasting beauty.

In addition to these main techniques, there are a few other types worth mentioning:
