Once reserved for highly trained artists, the techniques for creating Italian plasterwork are now available to all. With the help of the newest user-friendly materials, and these incredibly detailed and wonderfully illustrated instructions, do-it-yourselfers can easily create exquisite wall treatments. The focus here is on acrylic plasters--particularly Polished or Venetian Plaster and Textured Plaster--and their many possible applications. Find out about tools, color schemes, and surface preparation, as well as every single step involved in applying the plaster. Drying times, adding a topcoat, burnishing, polishing, and glazing: it's all covered. Do crosshatch, stenciling, Venetian lace patterns, and lots more. The lovely finishes range from old world Tuscany to contemporary iridescent, and they're displayed in inspirational photos of finished homes.
