Our Intonachino plaster is developed with the latest in admixture technologies all blended with high quality lime, marble powder, silica flour and graded silicas. This line of plaster comes in four different grades, smooth, medium, coarse, grosso, and in a white base that can be tinted. These plasters can be used on interiors as well as exteriors. Intonachino should be applied in a minimum of 2 coats over our interior or exterior supplied quartz stone primer. The coarse Intonachino has the largest percentage of silica grains, and will produce the best thicker finishes, textures, old world looks etc. The grosso has our largest grain size but in a small quantity, creating a more pitted look, or a finish that goes on smooth with a refined surface but small holes and tears. The smooth and medium versions create beautiful smooth to polished finishes, skip trowel effects and travertine drags. This product does extremely well when wanting to produce darker finishes that you want a guarantee of no marble crushing and leaving white in your finish, as is often seen when doing travertine drags, and the marble crushes under the stress of the trowel dragging across the surface. Sand is also an extremely hard product and often produces a stronger finish than one with just lime and marble and has a different refraction and less compaction than marble, lending to very different and unique surfaces not found with regular Venetian plaster finishes.
Our pre-mixed dry powder is formulated for superior adhesion, workability and durability. We have ensured that the plaster easily mixes and wets out thoroughly leaving a smooth lump free plaster. A wide range of interior and exterior textures can be achieved with our Intonachino plaster.
