Out with the old, in with the new

General Posted: by Applicart

Spring, the season of new life and new beginnings. The weather becomes warmer, nights become lighter and all spirits are lifted. Why not take advantage of new beginnings, and refresh your homes with Polished Plaster & Micro Cement…

Our April mood board is all things fresh, starting off with a background of Marmorino Naturale in a light green tone. Marmorino Naturale is suitable for both interior and exterior areas, and it is possible to achieve both smooth and glossy finishes. We chose this green colour tone as green represents growth and freshness. At the bottom end of the mood board, you can see a Marmorino Naturale sample in a lightly toned blue.


To the top of the mood board, you can see a sample of Marmorino Venezia Travertino with metallics. Travertino has great resistance to humidity and moulds, and is suitable for wet areas, so is a popular option for pool hall walls, shower areas and saunas. Even though this sample is coloured, Marmorino Venezia Travertino is equally as stunning in it’s natural state. The pink tone, as seen on this sample, is a great hue when wanting to create a calming atmosphere in your living space, due to it’s calming characteristics.


To the right of the Travertino, you can see a Natural Marmorino Venezia sample. Marmorino Venezia is a very strong product, and boasts excellent durability and good resistance to humidity and moulds. Due to these characteristics, Marmorino Venezia is ideal for wet areas such as showers, swimming pool areas and high traffic areas. Although this sample is in it’s natural state, our Metallique range can be used to create several different colour tones, suited to your needs.


To the top right of the mood board, you can see a small sample of Veined Stucco. The modern production techniques for this product ensures workability, resistance and durability, which makes Stucco far superior to normal slaked lime. The technique to achieve the veining effect requires much delicacy, as it is created by hand drawing strands of pigments through the plaster mix. Stucco mix is then hand trowelled on in layers and cut back to a previous layer to achieve visibility of the veins.
