Stucco Veneziano technique
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.
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 on the label. Use the stirring fixture of your drilling machine.
Make sure the powder dissolves well.
Add the Lime tinting base into the mixture. Use the amount that is required to achieve your desired colour shade.
Mix the Tinting base thoroughly until a homogeneous, coloured filling material is achieved.
Use a square trowel to take some material from the bucket and spread it onto a Venetian trowel.
Apply the coloured material on the wall with crossing movements. Procede piece by piece pressing the trowel well against the wall. The pressure is needed to solidify the surface.
Work with swinging movements, until a silky gloss is achieved. 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 wonderful surface feel.
The look can be created in many colour variations. Depending on the used amount of the tinting base and its colour shade, various bright, modern or decent walls in any decoration style can be created.
The technique can be applied almost everywhere - in the bathroom, kitchen, entry hall or living room.
Some of the possible colour examples are introduced in the area "Reference photos".
The technique can also be used in wet rooms - such as bathroom or kitchen.
Here you see an elegant design in the Stucco Veneziano technique applied in a modern bathroom.
It does not always have to be the tiles: In this kitchen, the terracotta-coloured stripe gives warmth and looks great with the wooden furniture.
All walls of this dining room have been painted with the Stucco Veneziano technique in a gentle beige colour.
Do not be afraid of bright colours! A single wall in an intense red. Such colors should however be used sparingly.
This gentle yellow tone is much more relaxing for the eyes. The kitchen wall is resistant to the splashing water: due to the strong pressing with the tool the material has solidified, making the surface durable.
However, the surface is not resistant to splashes of fat.
This sample wall presents various colourful designs of the technique. Does it include your favorite look?
