A question we get a lot at applicArt is ‘What finish does this give?’ A lot of our plasters have a textured finish and this is the feature that really grabs some of our customers. To help you out we have put this blog together to list some of the finishes that can be achieved with our products.

Picking the right texture for the room you are decorating is important, along with the colours and other features you have, will also affect your choice.

We have summarised some of our popular products below, detailing their finish.


Authentic Veined Stucco Veneziano

Authentic Veined Stucco Veneziano

As you can see from the image, the veined technique gives off a very traditional look. The technique is created by hand drawing stands of pigment through the plaster mix. The mix is then trowelled on in layers, randomly being cut back to achieve the visibility of the veins. The best examples we have seen of this effect is in kitchens and bathrooms where the marbled look fits right in.

Cara De La Rocca

On the other end of the spectrum to Stucco Veneziano, Cara De La Rocca has a rough textured finish that can look great as a feature wall in a room making anything stand out. As you can see from the images above it gives off a glittery effect that gives a contrast to the rough natural look. As well as the looks Cara De La Rocca is very good in wet areas like spas and around pools.

DeCòrten Rust

As you can probably guess from the name DeCòrten Rust gives the look of rusted metal. This is created using metallic paint which lasts a lot longer than the real thing in both interiors and exteriors. DeCòrten suits both modern and traditional styles, by means of a unique finish that reproduces an authentic look.
