Our Liscia Grossolana Decorative Venetian plaster is smooth and reflective and is developed with the purest form of Kaolin clay known as Kaolin Grolleg or China clay that has been blended with marble powder, medium marble sand and special additives for added adhesion and hardness. Kaolin clay is much safer to work with, is more ph neutral, zero voc and ecologically friendly to the environment. There is no use of kilns or production of carbon dioxide in the making of Liscia. This plaster comes in a cream white base that can be tinted. Liscia can be used on interiors only and should be applied in a minimum of 2 coats. Liscia a modern-day version of Marmorino or ‘little marble’ and has a thicker build and less variation in color. The ratio of marble powder to grains is important and we have ensured the proportions and gradient sizes have all been tested thoroughly. The final appearance of Liscia can have distressed, marble like and stone effects, matte to satin finishes and coarse old world finishes or skip trowel effects. Unlike our Vp Satin series, our clay plasters have a mechanical set vs a chemical set and can be easily cleaned and fixed for repairs by using water to soften the clay. The working times of our clay plasters are longer than lime based plasters and can be kept wet with water to eliminate cold joints etc.
Liscia can be modified for extra durability and ease of use, especially for base coats. Simply add a prepackaged amount of lime provided with your plaster prior to mixing with water to create a slight chemical set that helps in durability and keeps your base layer from wetting out and becoming difficult to work on or to help novice applicators.
