Rialto/Old World - From Stone back to Stone

  • The authentic Venetian plasters begin as Dolomitic limestone rocks harvested from the rivers of northern Italy.
  • The traditional method requires the river stones to be cooked for 10 days at 900℃, then hydrated, slaked and seasoned for 2 years.
  • Troweled onto your walls, they return to stone as they cure over time.
  • As light refracts on the plasters, the colors are enriched as they return to your senses, giving organic warmth to your walls and to your rooms.
