The Spatulata® finish is pure luxury. Pioneered by the Egyptians; improved by the Romans; it became known as Stucco Lustro Veneziano by the Venetians. Traditionally it was applied in 10-15 fine coats over a background of 2-3 layers of semi-dry Marmorino and finally polished with hot irons.
Modern additives have greatly improved the working characteristics enabling it to be successfully applied in just 5-7 layers and polished to a glassy shine with a small steel blade or trowel. The Spatulata® finish is a unique mix of high-grade aged lime putty, micronised marble powder and special additives. For many, it is the ultimate Venetian Stucco - certainly the one with the highest sheen and the most intriguing texture.
Applied in numerous fine layers and then trowel polished to a glassy surface, it possesses remarkable depth and sheen.
