Venetian Gem Bellissimo

Venetian Gem Bellissimo
Pre-colored Venetian Gem® Bellissimo plaster is a marble plaster formulated to produce high quality plaster finishes. It is a light bodied, creamy plaster material that is easier to apply as a result of the products finer consistency.

Specially developed for the professional faux and decorative artist, this versatile plaster can be layered with other Faux Effects International products to create rustic old world plaster finishes or when used alone can be burnished to emit the classic, polished Venetian plaster shine with very little effort, using cheesecloth or a plastic/stainless steel trowel. Smooth, uniformly glossy, marble- like surfaces can be created as well as the traditional matte/high shine plaster variation.

Available in Old World Colours, Jewel Colours, as well as a tinting base.

Covers Approximately 100 - 200 sq ft per gallon

Sold in quarts and gallons.

Lime Slag™

Lime Slag™
Lime Slag™ is a natural lime putty that may be used as an additive to certain Faux Effects products. It is an integral part of our Venetian Gem® family of products. Adding Lime Slag™ to Venetian Gem® will result in a finish of increased beauty and brilliance as well as superior hardness and shine. Lime Slag™ may also be tinted with exterior-rated FauxCrème Color™ and thinned with water for use as a staining and burnishing agent.

Add about 25% into Venetian Gem™; this will slightly thicken the Venetian Gem material. The material may then be applied by trowel onto a properly prepared dry SetCoat base. Once dry, fine sanding then burnishing will produce a radiant, durable finish.

To learn the correct professional application procedure for Lime Slag™, training at a Faux Effects®™ Certified Workshop is recommended.

Sold in quart and gallon sizes.
