Introduction to Venetian Plastering
When it comes to beautiful, decorative wall finishes that withstand the test of time, those Renaissance-era Italians sure got it right. Venetian and Italian plasters have been used on interior and exterior surfaces for centuries, turning ordinary walls and ceilings into works of art. With our hands-on, introductory course in Venetian plastering, you, too, can learn to create this luxe look for less.
Veneshe's introductory Venetian plastering course is for the handy homeowner, or decorative painter who wants to learn how to apply real Italian plasters. Not to be confused with the commercially-produced gallons of paint-based faux plasters commonly found in big box stores, our plasters are the real deal - natural lime plaster, imported in buckets, directly from Italy. If authentic, natural, and old world appeal to you, you're going to love this course!
This course teaches the basic Venetian plaster application techniques that will awe your friends, relatives and associates. You'll master techniques for applying Classic Italian Plaster finishes like Marmorino, polished Venetian plaster finishes like Grassello di Calce, and rustic Tuscan plaster finishes such as Mezzo. You'll leave with sample boards of your work and the confidence to do it yourself.

"Great introductory course into the use of Venetian plasters and their design possibilities. The hands on experience of making sample boards with the authentic material, required proper tools and in a simulated area (vertical as if a wall) provided confidence in the handling and application. I would recommend this course for the professional as well as do-it-yourselfer to see if this is a field/finish they want to offer or if they want to tackle themselves as in a homeowner." - Rich F
