Stucco Veneziano Application
At Marmorino Venetian Plaster we offer the following Stucco Veneziano application notes tips and tricks geared towards the novice or beginner to help get the best results from this finish. Advanced applicators will know how to make it little easier due to their experience and this may allow for omitting step 1 below.
We always recommend that you apply a base coat of Marmocarrara with any application involving Marmoclassic, Marmocarrara, Marmobreccia, Marmodorato, Marmocorallo and Grassello Lucido. This will help with ease of application due to the amount of extra suction added by the base coat to the Stucco Veneziano.
Apply a first coat of Marmocarrara quite liberally and making sure to keep as many ridges and trowel imperfections out of the base coat as possible. It will be OK to fall back on what you have spread after about 10 minutes and flatten it down a little. This may be White or colored, we recommend colored.
Allow this coat to fully dry over night.
Apply a first coat of colored finish again making sure to apply quite liberally and at the same time keeping ridges and trowel imperfections out as much as possible.
Allow this coat to dry fully over night.
Apply second coat but this time it will be applied using less material than in the previous step and again keeping ridges and trowel imperfections to a minimum.
Allow this to dry for about an hour until you cannot see any wet spots, then proceed with the final coat.
This one will be applied much tighter than the previous one. After about each square meter it will be necessary to fall back and begin to burnish, sometimes another applicator will best be suited to carry out this process only. Allow this coat to fully dry over night.
