What is Marmorino?

Marmorino is a lime plaster which is easy to use and applied to smooth interior surfaces. It can be used to create stunning surfaces with a silky shine and a deep transparency of polished or textured stone effects.

What is Marmorino made of?

The Marmorino product that we offer is an Italian plaster that is known by different names throughout the world, including:

  • Venetian plaster
  • Polished plaster
  • Italian plaster
  • Stucco paint
  • Venetian paint

    Marmorino is a type of plaster that is made from lime putty, primarily slaked lime and ground marble, and can be applied to create a wide range of satin, matt and glossy effects, from polished marble with fresco veins and natural stone to the more common monochrome wall with light and dark shades.

    By adding coloured pigment, a wide variety of colours can be created achieving consistent tones through different finishes.

    Why is Marmorino so popular?

    Marmorino is a traditional Italian product which has been used for centuries, and is a byproduct of the Italian marble industry. The appeal of Marmorino is that it allows walls to breathe making it suitable for locations with high humidity.

    Since the 1990s it has become increasingly popular across the world with the development of the product making it easy to use and store. Many examples of Marmorino can be seen in bars, restaurants, and other public buildings because of its marble-like appearance and antibacterial properties. 

    Marmorino is not limited to just being used on walls, it can also be used on other surfaces such as wooden panels and plasterboard, after the appropriate preparation has taken place. This makes it one of the most popular polished plaster products due to the fact that it is versatile, both in colour and finish.

    Marmorino is one of the most popular plaster products because it is simple to apply to your chosen surface area. If you are unsure on how to apply it, feel free to get in touch with our experienced team today. We would love to help you.

    The origins of Marmorino

    Marmorino plaster is extremely well known as a classic Venetian plaster, but the origins of it are much, much older. Dating back to ancient Roman times, we can see evidence of Marmorino usage in the villas of Pompeii, and in other Roman structures situated throughout Rome.
