Stucco Veneziano technique

Glassy walls in oriental look

We present you a wall design technique that allows you to create glassy walls with oriental charm: the Stucco Veneziano technique by use of AURO High-grade lime filler and Lime tinting base.

Also needed
  • Water, measuring cup, stiring fixture, drilling machine, empty bucket
  • Square trowel, Venezian trowel
  • Cotton cloth

A measuring cup is the the best tool to prepare the desired amount of the filling powder.

Mix the High-grade wall filler with water according to the instructions at the package. Use the stiring fixture of your drilling machine.

Make sure the powder has solved well.

Add the Lime tinting base into the mixture. Use the amount that is required to achieve your desired color shade.

Mix the Tinting base thoroughly until a homogenious, colored filling material is reached.

Use a square trowel to take some material from the bucket and spread it onto a Venecian trowel.

Apply the colored material on the wall with crossing movements. Procede piece by piece pressing the trowel well against the wall. The pressure is needed to thicken the surface.

Work with swinging movements, until a silky gloss is reached. The optimal thickness of a layer is max. 1 mm. You can see this working step precisely in our instruction video.

Leave the wall to dry for 12 hours.

In order to receive more gloss and protection, polish the transparent Wall glaze wax into the surface; use a cotton cloth.

You have created a silky smooth, glossy surface with a wonderfull touch feeling.
