    What is Venetian plaster?

  • lime binders and lime based paints, sealants and coatings

    Lime has been the main binder used in construction during the last ten thousand years.
    It’s been used since at least 7500 BC in Jordan and can also be found in the walls of early Egyptian tombs. Builders in the Roman Empire used it in many structures, although it wasn’t until the Renaissance that marble dust was first added to lime plaster, allowing for the hard, smooth finish forever associated with Venetian palazzos: Venetian Marmorino.
