Our Venetian Italian Basecoat plaster is developed with the latest in admixture technologies all blended with high quality lime, pumice, marble powder and graded marble grains. This line of plaster comes in two different grades, fine and coarse in a white base that can be tinted. These plasters can be used on interiors as well as exteriors. Basecoat should be applied in a minimum of 2 coats over our interior or exterior supplied quartz stone primer. The coarse grade of plaster is used if you want a more robust finish that will cover cement boards, joints, and large imperfections or texture on a specific surface. The larger dense gradient of grains of marble create a higher build and allow for heavier coats that will cover more imperfections. This product can be applied in multiple wet coats as the pumice in the product allows for a quick set up of the plaster. You can double back over a project after only 30-60 min and add more plaster to areas that need further smoothing. The fine version has smaller grains and creates a thinner profile when working with smoother substrates, old interior walls or anywhere requiring a fresh smooth surface to apply a decorative coating. The fine product is best suited under thinner smaller grain plasters, as a bridge between the coarse and a finer plaster or as a stand alone remediation on old drywall walls etc prior to a decorative coat.
