 Classic Venetian Plaster and Caenstone

June 19th&20th

Price: $495

Venetian Plaster is quite simply the layering of different colored plasters applied so that a basecoat of several different opaque colors are left to bleed into each other. These different colors are then allowed to show through a highly polished translucent finished coat of plaster.

The result is a finish which at first glance looks slightly rough and mottled, however when touched the surface is actually smooth and reflective as glass.

Caenstone is a troweled on masonry finish that was popular in theaters and very high end residences in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Many interesting patterns can be carved or stenciled out of this great finish. Caenstone has mica specs that sparkle with beautiful elegance.

This is a great price for a great class! Inquire by calling 718-361-1071 or email at info@miragefinishes.com
